The book I'm not reading

by Patty Larkin

Lyrics

Great for practising the present continuous tense in the negative:-

The book I'm not reading is riveting,
The book I'm not reading keeps me up at night.
The book I'm not reading is better than TV,
Giving me insight.
The book I'm not reading is history.
The book I'm not reading is by some paperback writer.
The book I'm not reading is a mystery,
Who done it don't [doesn't] matter.

Oh! I need someone to read me stories.
Oh! Someone to turn the page.
Oh! The endless quest for love and glory.
Oh! Does not fade away with age.

The book I'm not reading is an ancient tome.
The book I'm not reading was born yesterday.
The book I'm not reading keeps me on the phone,
With nothing to say.

The book I'm not reading is the self-help kind.
The book I'm not reading has a life jacket enclosed.
The book I'm not reading is a friend of mine.
God knows we need those.

Oh! I need someone to read me stories.
Oh! Someone to turn the page.
Oh! The endless quest for love and glory.
Oh! Does not fade away with age.

The book I'm not reading's on the internet.
The book I'm not reading is a brand new movie.
The book I'm not reading isn't out yet,
And it's all new to me.

The book I'm not reading isn't written down.
The book I'm not reading is an English translation.
The book I'm not reading should be read aloud,
And I'm getting impatient.

Oh! I need someone to read me stories.
Oh! Someone to turn the page.
Oh! The endless quest for love and glory.
Oh! Does not fade away with age.
