Reading Reading!

Chorus

Reading, reading

Reading gives a feeling

Reading makes your life

So wonderful and pleasing

Reading, reading

Reading gives a feeling

Reading makes your life

So wonderful and pleasing

When I curl up on my sofa

And I read my book

With a cup of hot tea

And a furry cloak

And I read every word

With a screen in my mind

And I see what I’m reading

All of the time!

Sometimes I am wandering far and wide

In the streets of a thriller

Or the sands of time

And I listen to the voice

Of the writer in my head

Then I feel the power

And I feel the dread

Coz I’m reading, reading (chorus)

And I’m reading on my back

And I’m reading on my front

And I’m reading on the stairs

And I’m reading for a stunt

And I’m reading for some fun

And I’m reading for my job

And I’m reading for some cooking

And my heart starts to throb

Coz I’m reading, reading (chorus)

And I’m reading a book called Animal Farm

And Wuthering Heights

And The Withered Arm

And The Lord of the Rings

And The Gorgon’s Head

With The Hunger Games

What The Thunder Said

And Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry

And The Wind in the Willows

And The Lord of the Flies

And Harry Potter

And Stig of the Dump

And a comic strip about Donald Trump!

And Talking Turkeys

The Faerie Queene

Les Misérables

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

And Something Wicked This Way Comes

Of Mice And Men

The Royal Hunt For The Sun

And The Masnavi

And Things Fall Apart

Coz I’m reading, reading! (chorus)
