The Lyrics

Since I got bounced with a smutty one, I'll go back to nice, clean educational material.
Oh, give me a poem
Or a multi-page tome
And a quiet library to read
For a novel well writ
Makes the world fade a bit
And I find that my mind can be freed

Books, books for a change
Take a break from the video play
T. V. is for the birds
For the power of words
Will improve your mind slightly each day

Oh, give me a break
From that Springer mistake
And the spate of reality shows
I just want to run
And most of the rest really blows

Books, books for a change
Take a break from the video play
With a book in your lap
You can run from the crap
And your brains won't just leak out each day

I feel slightly smarter now. Wasn't too, too funny, but it was what you wanted it to be: clean, educational material. Nice and 5's from me.

The what? First of all, that was me, I don't know how the n got removed, and I also don't know how the rest of the message got removed as well. What I said was: go that! ... ah, yes I do. I put a less than sign, also known as a open html tag. Duh, I'm stupid. Anyway: go that! TV (less than) books! Of course, books (less than) gaming, but only just barely. Anyway, 5s.
