Catch the Reading Bug - song lyric

The reading bug is loose
In a volume of Mother Goose
Now he's crawling behind a Sneetch
Now he's riding with James in a Giant Peach
The reading bug hops from book to book
And I've been told it's true
That if you catch the reading bug
His treasure will belong to you

Chorus:
Catch the reading bug. Catch the reading bug.
Catch the reading bug. Nya nya na nya na.
Catch the reading bug. Catch the reading bug.
Catch the reading bug. Nya nya na nya na.

That reading bug is quick
He's crawling the walls of Spiderwick
He's jumping like a flea
From Katie Kazoo to Junie B
You never know with that reading bug
Which book to look inside
No one's ever caught him yet
Though many a kid has tried and tried

Repeat Chorus

The reading bug hides his treasure in the
Library somewhere
They say whoever he shares it with will be
Rich beyond compare
Rich beyond compare

I've been chasing that bug since birth
From Busy Town to Middle Earth
He was not in the books I read
But I did find my own reward instead
And I'll tell you how to do it
If you want some treasure too
Just check out a big old pile of books
Take em home and read a few

Repeat Chorus
