A Book Will Take You There
words by Phil Cummings
music by Glyn Lehmann

Verse 1
Grip the handle of the library door
Enter a galaxy of worlds to explore
Make a choice, sit on the floor…

And imagine if you dare
A book will take you there

Verse 2
When the wind blows on winter’s nights
Tug at the blankets, snuggle up tight
Click the switch, turn on the light…

And imagine if you dare
A book will take you there

Bridge 1
Imagine a place, a character, a time
March to the rhythm of a rollicking rhyme
Imagine a journey, a street, a home
A life so different from your own

And imagine if you dare
A book will take you there

Bridge 2
Laugh, discover, listen, share
Learn, understand, imagine, care

Repeat Bridge 1 and 2 simultaneously (2 parts)

Verse 1 reprise
Grip the handle of the library door
Enter a galaxy of worlds to explore
Make a choice, sit on the floor…

And imagine if you dare
A book will take you there

Outro
A book will take you there
