Listen to the Song! Listen to the Song [mp3]

One day a super spy snuck over to me


He was on a mission of the utmost secrecy


He was secretly searching for something new


School was out he had nothing to do


He saw the book in my hand and said, "Aha, a clue!'

I said "Mr. Spy, this is your lucky day."


"I know a not so secret place, and it's not so far away"


"You'll see it's not a mystery, come on and follow me."


Then I led him to the Library

And I said…


You don't need a telescope, all you need are eyes


You don't need a magnifying glass or a super secret disguise


You're on a mission to find adventure and I know where to look


Your mission is possible - Spy a book

He inspected every corner and every shelf


He got a library card and a stack of books taller than himself


He hid those books under his cloak, disappeared in a puff of smoke


But by my feet he left a note

It said…


You don't need a telescope, all you need are eyes


You don't need a magnifying glass or a super secret disguise


You're on a mission to find adventure and I know where to look


Your mission is possible - Spy a book


Your mission is possible - Spy a book

"Mission Possible: READ!"

by Sally Meyers


Sung by The San Angelo Singing Boys, directed by Marco Melendez

Listen to the Song! Listen to the Song [mp3]

(Sing to the tune of "My Grandfather's Clock")

We learn as we grow,


there's a lot we don't know --


Mission possible, open a book!

There's a lot to be learned about Earth as it turns --


Mission possible, open a book!

Information and codes, secret agents, hidden roads


For adventures you'll never forget,

Spy a book! Look! Pick it up! Check it out! At the library!

Try a Mission that's possible! READ! READ! READ!


Try a Mission that's possible! READ! READ! READ!

Spy a book! Look! Pick it up! Check it out! At the library!
