The Lyrics

Browsing time
Open up the covers and skim through interesting books
Browsing time
I won't pay attention to the bookstore owner's dirty looks
Browsing time
One last look at this novel and then I will be on my way
Browsing time
I will try not to leave the shelves in disarray

I know what book I want to take home
I know what book I want to take home
I know what book I want to take home

Browsing time
Time for me to read about coin collecting or fish
Browsing time
Time for me to read a cookbook so I can make a good dish
So gather up your paperbacks, hide them in your knapsacks
If you're a kleptomaniac
Browsing time
Oops, you got caught, now you'll have to give them back

I know when I want to read this poem
I know when I want to read this poem
I know when I want to read this poem
Without paying

Browsing time
Time for you to read what you can till they ask you to leave

I know what book I want to take home
I know what book I want to take home
I know what book I want to take home
But I'll skim

Browsing time
Every really good book comes from someone who once was a hack
