dewey

Friends! Readers! Readathoners! Lend me your…eyes!

Hello and welcome to the first hour of Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon!!! Thank you, Dewey, for creating this magnificent event! We miss you soooooo much. I hope we make you proud today. Love you!

So. Are we ready to party? I KNOW I AM!! And, to kick us off, I am so pleased and so honored to present a new Readathon song, written by our old buddy Jill of the old Fizzy Thoughts. Oh, I miss you so Jill and thank you so very much for another stroke of brilliance. So, read the song, get it pumping in your veins and let’s kick this baby off!!! (See below for the kick off meme!)

To help you get the tune in your head:

Oh Readers! To the tune of Hey Mickey!

Oh Readers, crack the spine
Crack the spine ’n read a line, hey Readers, hey Readers
Oh Readers, crack the spine
Crack the spine ’n read a line, hey Readers, hey Readers
Oh Readers, crack the spine
Crack the spine ’n read a line, hey Readers, hey Readers
Oh Readers, crack the spine
Crack the spine ’n read a line, hey Readers…

Hey Readers

You’ve been reading all day and that’s a little long
You’re feeling kinda sleepy, so here’s a silly song
Please don’t tell me goodnight – I know you can take it home, Readers

If your head is nodding it might be time for snack

And if your book is boring, baby, go ahead and put it back
Stand up and do 25 jumping jacks, Readers

Oh Readers, what a pity, others don’t understand

Books take us by the heart when we take them in our hand
Oh Readers, you’re so witty, the smartest in the land
It’s peeps like you, Readers
Keep doing what you do Readers, go Readers
Don’t give up now, Readers

Hey Readers

If you take a short siesta… who’s… ever gonna know
Every time you turn a page I cheer a little more
It’s only twice a year, so don’t give up, Readers

So come on and read some more like I know you can

Any book you want to read, I’ll be your biggest fan
Just keep in mind your attention span, Readers

Oh Readers, what a pity, others don’t understand

Books take us by the heart when we take them in our hand
Oh Readers, you’re so witty, the smartest in the land
It’s peeps like you, Readers
Keep doing what you do Readers, go Readers
Don’t give up now, Readers

Oh Readers, crack the spine

Crack the spine ’n read a line, hey Readers, hey Readers
Oh Readers, crack the spine
Crack the spine ’n read a line, hey Readers, hey Readers
Oh Readers, crack the spine
Crack the spine ’n read a line, hey Readers, hey Readers
Oh Readers, crack the spine
Crack the spine ’n read a line, hey Readers…
You’re so fine, you blow my mind, hey Readers…

Oh Readers, what a pity, others don’t understand

Books take us by the heart when we take them in our hand
Oh Readers, you’re so witty, the smartest in the land
It’s peeps like you, Readers
Keep doing what you do Readers, go Readers
Don’t give up now, Readers

Now, go get reading!

  4. The video is blocked for people outside the US, I guess, because I can’t watch it 🙁
