(Spoken)

Un libro bueno es un tesoro

mejor que monedas de plata y oro.

If you wanna have a blast.

I know a place you can explore.

There’s ancient creatures from the past,

triceratops and stegosaur.

There’s no telling what you’ll find

if you dig deep – it’s a gold mine.

So grab a book and take a peek

if buried treasure’s what you seek.

Chorus

Dig up a good book.

It's not very hard to do.

Dig up a good book.

You'll learn something new.

All you need is your curiosity

and to know your ABC’s.

Dig up a good book.

Go anywhere you want to go.

Be anything you want to be.

Take a trip on a UFO,

Or dig a tunnel under the sea.

You can hide a bone just like a dog,

or burrow down like a hedgehog.

Pick up a shovel and a hoe,

Plant a seed and watch it grow.

Chorus

Dig up a good book.

It's not very hard to do.

Dig up a good book.

You'll learn something new.

All you need is your curiosity

and to know your ABC’s.

Dig up a good book.

Dig up a good book.
