2001 Texas Reading Club Theme Song
When We Read Overture:
The Future and Beyond--2001
By Sally Meyers
Tom Green County Library
(Sing to the tune of The William Tell Overture by Rossini)
When we read, we explore through all space and time.
We unlock ev'ry corner of our minds.
We will find new adventures of many kinds;
Go to places that are hard to find.
MEXICO, KOKOMO, SAN ANTONIO
BALTIMORE, BUFFALO, AND OHIO
JACKSONVILLE, WICHITA, MINNEAPOLIS
SACRAMENTO, WASHINGTON D.C.
Cyberspace, human race, surf the Internet
Go see what you would like to be.
Read a book, take a look, and we'll surely see,
The Future and Beyond!
PHYSICIST, ASTRONAUT, OR DENTIST
JOURNALIST, TEACHER, AIRPLANE PILOT,
TRUCK DRIVER, ARTIST.
When we read we explore through all space and time
We unlock ev'ry corner of our minds
And we find new adventures of many kinds.
Meet new faces that are fun to find.
BREMEN BAND, NEVERLAND, AND A DOG NAMED HANK,
CHARLOTTE'S WEB, MADELINE, AND THE BFG!
SEUSS'S CAT, WILBUR'S RAT, AND BUNNICULA!
MEET NEW FRIENDS, AND READ A BOOK WITH ME!
