Fun Fridays – May 23, 2014

A great song about books!

Lyrics:

If You Love to Read

There’s a story waiting to be told
Waiting for all of us, whether we’re young or old
The story is in there if you take a look
Go ‘head and and open up, the pages of a book
If you ask me, I will read with you
Don’t underestimate the things that books can do
There’s a story waiting to be told
Waiting for all of us, whether we’re young or old

The stories inside can open your mind
They’ve got me wishing now that I could read them all
The stories inside can take you for a ride
I can’t help feeling

That you can have it all
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
If you love to read
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
The stories there, just turn the page
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
You can find it, in a book
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)

Books they have a story they will tell
Comedy, comic, romance, horror,
and poetry as well

When I’m feeling like there’s no place for me
I know I’ll always feel at home
in a library

(I really wish you, you would read to me)
The stories inside can open your mind
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
They’ve got me wishing now that I could read them all
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
The stories inside can take you for a ride
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
I can’t help feeling that

You can have it all
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
If you love to read
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
The stories there, just turn the page
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
You can find it, in a book
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
You can have it all
If you love to read
The stories there, just turn the page
You can find it, in a book

Throw yourself into every open book (woah)
There’s something for everyone if you take a look (woah)
Turn the pages, and then before you know (woah)
Books will pay you back in kind just watch your knowledge grow

(I really wish you, you would read to me)
You can have it all
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
You can have it all
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
It all, it all, it all
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)

You can have it all
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
If you love to read
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
The stories there, just turn the page
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
You can find it, in a book
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)

You can have it all
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
If you love to read
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
The stories there, just turn the page
(I really wish you, you would read to me)

(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)

You’ll find it
You’ll find it
You’ll find it
You’ll find it in a book.

    I bet she had a blast making this video. Kudos to her! Super cool.

    Awesome! Great female vocals, both lead and backup. The lead makes it look easy but I am sure that a lot of hard work and countless hours went into this production. When a finished work is very entertaining, fulfilling and memorable it many times give the appearance that it is simple and was easy to do. Genius often appears this way. This would be much akin to a great novel, it just rolls, effortlessly. You can’t put it down and before you know it it has come to a completely satisfying end. Originality and creativity coupled with the craft of excellent execution becomes art. A familiar quote:

    Don’t only practice your art,
    but force your way into its secrets,
    for it and knowledge can
    raise men to the Divine.

    Ludwig von Beethoven

    Ludwig had a few hits so I give his advice credibility. Also, I completely agree with you J.D. Even though the lead singer probably worked very hard to perfect this presentation she likely had a blast in making it. Great Voice!
