Lyrics

Books, ahoy, mates, books, ahoy!
Here's a book that wants a captain. Can we find a girl or boy?
Set your compass for adventure, weigh your anchor and enjoy.
Books, ahoy! Books, ahoy! Books, ahoy, mates, books, ahoy!

Sail this book with Fern and Avery through a summer on the farm
where the sheep has shared the secret that the pig will come to harm.
Farmer Zuckerman intends to turn poor Wilbur into ham.
Can a wonder weaving spider spin him out of such a jam?
Sail with one terrific humble pig celeb in the good book, Charlotte's
Web.

Books, ahoy! (Books, ahoy!) Books, ahoy! (Books, ahoy!)
Books, ahoy, mates, books, ahoy!

Here's a book that shows a blusterous wind can always be withstood.
Raise her sails; that wind will blow you through the Hundred Acre Wood.
Trap a heffalump or two or track some woozles if you dare
with a nervous little piglet and a honey-hungry bear.
Sail with Rabbit, Eeyore, Kanga, Owl, and Roo in the good book, Winnie the Pooh.

Books, ahoy! (Books, ahoy!) Books, ahoy! (Books, ahoy!)
Books, ahoy, mates, books, ahoy!

Here's a book that wants a brave and daring captain in command.
Fly with Wendy, John, and Michael on a trip to Neverland.
Captain Hook and all his pirates will attempt to run you through,
but their efforts will be thwarted with a "Cockadoodledoo!"
By the boy who'll never grow to be a man in the good book, Peter Pan.

So many books for you to choose from!
So many seas that must be crossed!
And whichever book you board, whatever point you sail her toward,
she'll be stormed upon and tossed.
But don't dismay when she starts to pitch and sway;
she will weather every squall.
When you bring her safely in and you're set to sail again,
just cup your hands and call,

Books, ahoy! (Books, ahoy!)
Books, ahoy! (Books, ahoy!)
Books, ahoy! (Books, ahoy!)
Books, ahoy! (Books, ahoy!)
