We’re Going to the Bookmobile” – written and performed by Marc Falk

We’re going to the Bookmobile
You know it’s a real big deal
It’s like a library, but it’s on wheels
It’s the Bookmobile

You might see it driving around
Going up one street then going down
I think it’s coming to your town
It’s the Bookmobile


It’s got a lot of books inside
Places to read, places to hide
Librarians go for a ride
In the Bookmobile


It’s got a lot of DVDs
Rock ‘em, sock ‘em movies
You can check them out if you ask them please
At the Bookmobile


All around the town it roams
It’s got a lot of books to loan
You can check them out, you can take them home
From the Bookmobile


It’s the leader of the pack
Bringing books to you right on track
When you’re done you got to bring them back
To the Bookmobile

You can play with Frog and Toad
Oliver Twist, or Old Tom Joe
Jack Kerouac goes On the Road
In his Bookmobile


Spell B-O-O-K-M-O-B
Follow up with a I-L-E
Drivin’ around Iowa City
It’s the Bookmobile

[Chorus] x2

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
