Oh, Give Me a Home in a Book
By Carol Montgomery ©2013

 

Reader 1:  Oh, give me a home,
                  Where the elephants roam,
                  Where the lions and tigers can play.
                  Where monkeys live free to be best friends with me,
                  And the penguins sing loudly all day.

All:   Home, home in a book,
        Where the lions and tigers can play.
        Where monkeys live free to be best friends with me,
        And the penguins sing loudly all day.

Reader 2:   Oh, give me a home
                  Where the dinosaurs roam
                  Where the food is not going to be me!
                  Where animals talk as we go for a walk,
                  And the bugs do not bite, but serve tea.

All:   Home, home in a book,
        Where the lions and tigers can play.
        Where monkeys live free to be best friends with me,
        And the penguins sing loudly all day.

Reader 3:   Oh, give me a home,
                  Where the real heroes roam,
                  Where the knights only fight with a sword.
                  Where princesses cling to the dream of a king,
                  And the treasures of kingdoms are stored.

All:   Home, home in a book,
        Where the lions and tigers can play.
        Where monkeys live free to be best friends with me,
        And the penguins sing loudly all day.
