Stampede to Read (Version III) - song lyric

It's got the world wide-eyed with wonder.
It's what everybody wants to do.
It'll make your day, blow the clouds away
and let the light come shining through.
No, it's not a shoe or a soft drink.
But it's a lift you really need.
So come on, check out what it's all about.

We are a nation built on freedom.
Where ideas are allowed to flow.
So when you feel perplexed, there'll be a helpful text
to tell you anything you need to know.
It's a human thirst for knowledge.
You've got a curious mind to feed.
Why make it hard, get your library card

It's a read stampede - everybody read!
