NOTES:

My love letter to Librarians!

Having sung in countless libraries, I’ve developed a great love of and appreciation for Librarians. They, like teachers, really really care about children. Unlike teachers, they have a certain luxury of not having to corral or look after kids, but instead have time to pay attention to kids’ dreams and to find things to inspire and uplift them.

 

Library Party
next song | previous song

Library Closing Time
Make the announcement, ring the chime
Straighten the chairs, do all those little chores
Move the people out and lock the doors
It’s been a long day of givin’ out information
We’ve earned ourselves a little celebration
Nobody knows what we librarians do
When we’re behind closed doors and out of view

Nobody knows what we librarians do
When we’re behind closed doors and out of view
Pull down the shades, dim the lights
Do we just read books or do we dance all night?
Library, Library Party Time

Some like to boogie, some sing the blues
Some like it funky in platform shoes
Some are bold, some are shy
It takes all kinds to make a library fly
Library, Library Party Time
Library, Library Party Time
Library, Library Party Time

Librarians!
We don’t shirk our duties
Librarians!
We all shake our booties!

We hold the key to the reference books in back
The key to the bathroom and restricted stacks
The key to the doors, we open at ten a.m.
We hold the key to knowledge that can set you free
The key to the books of mystery
We are the guardians of our great library
We got the key
We’ll set you free

Ya gotta dance, ya gotta open your mind
Ya gotta shake your head ya gotta shake your behind
Dare to dream, dare to groove
Read a book, make a noise, busta rhyme, busta move
When knuckleheads all rule the world
Who will teach the boys and girls?

Librarians!
Author, Subject, Title!
Librarians!
Freedom of information is Vital!

We hold the key to the reference books in back
The key to the bathroom and restricted stacks
The key to the doors, we close at six p.m.
We hold the key to knowledge that can set you free
The key to the books of mystery
We are the guardians of our great library
Yeah we got the key
Our service is free!

Nobody knows what we librarians do
When we’re behind closed doors and out of view
Pull down the shades, dim the lights
Do we just read books or do we dance all night?
Library, Library Party Time
Library, Library Party Time
Library, Library Party Time Library, Library Party Time

Librarians!
Do we decimal? Yes, we do!
Librarians!
Are we Alphabetical? A to Zoo!
Librarians!
Kick back and relax!
Librarians!
Watch us blow our stacks!
