The Lyrics

Dude has to deal with an overly strict and unfair librarian. Enjoy!
I've always found book readin' to be a lot of fun
Don't care if that sounds dorky
So the libr'ry I'm stayin' in
But there's one part of the libr'ry that really sucks
Librarian bugs me
Cause she's always treatin' me like shit
She's so incredibly grumpy, well
She comes over, way too near
And says I'm bein' way too lou-oud
But from my mouth, naught's escaped, yeah
Was just readin' my book

Why must you shush any sound that may spill, that may spill
From any book fa-an 'round? Cause I'm still, very still
I only coughed, so your rant is
Kind of a tad too dramatic
Yeah, yeah, so just chi-i-ill

Oh yeah

She said "You brat, there's no point in it, don't lie to me
Cause I know that you were talkin'"
I only coughed, I said that in the chorus
And sometimes when others do talk, you're blamin' me
It doesn't seem real fair to me
I'm sorry about this cold of mine
But you're just bein' too jerky, well
You just stand there, keep starin' at me
Find any reason to go off, you
You yell at me, yeah, seems a bit strange, ah
You're bein' louder than me, that's all

You're screamin' "Shush, you dumb clown!" as I mill, as I mill
And gen'rally ha-ang 'round at the till, at the till
Readin' a random-ass pamphlet
Yeah, wanted to borrow books, dammit
Yeah, yeah, I might still

Oh, I wish you'd come over
And not yell at me for sneezin', you grumpy fart
Got books to sca-an, please, sca-a-a-an, please
Don't hurl slurs a-at me
You might get sa-acked, see, a-axed, please

Don't waste time shushin' me now, want my fill, want my fill
Of books, please don't ra-ant loud, cause you're shrill, very shrill
You're bein' way too dogmati-ic, yeah-eah, yeah, yeah
In fact, you're damn rude, damn rude
Yea-eah, so just chill
Friggin' chill, just chi-ill, just chi-ill, yeah-eah-eah
Lady, chill, ju-ust chill, ju-ust chill, yeah-eah-eah
"Shush, you're too lou-oud, shut your face now"
Could you just lend these books ou-ou-out?
Come on, chi-ill

Sometimes I wonder why the whole "library must be quiet" thing came from. Just makes the places more boring than they should be. Of course, my library experience is either the school library or the work experience I did in one, so maybe libraries these days aren't so strict, who knows (or cares).
