From the recording Get a Clue

Lyrics

Well it’s a foot stomping rope swinging barrel of fun
There’s something in a book for everyone
To make your heart pound faster and your eyes pop out
And get you so riled up you just gotta shout
The hero of the story is the one you wanna be
I love hanging out with heroes at the library!

This diminutive detective always takes the case.
He leaves a note for his mom, then he’s off on the chase.
His clever dog, Sludge, helps him search for clues.
At times he finds he’s stuck and doesn’t know what to do.
That's when a pancake snack sets him thinking straight.
Solve a mystery at the library with Nate the Great!

Well it’s a foot stomping rope swinging barrel of fun
There’s something in a book for everyone
To make your heart pound faster and your eyes pop out
And get you so riled up you just gotta shout
The hero of the story is the one you wanna be
I love hanging out with heroes at the library!

He's a noble-hearted canine and an old cowhand.
He gets no appreciation for protecting his land.
As the head of ranch security his life's on the line.
Sneaking up and jumping on a porcupine.
If something goes awry, there's a cowdog to thank.
Making rounds at the library with good ol' Hank!

Well it’s a foot stomping rope swinging barrel of fun
There’s something in a book for everyone
To make your heart pound faster and your eyes pop out
And get you so riled up you just gotta shout
The hero of the story is the one you wanna be
I love hanging out with heroes at the library!

Criminals in Idaville are caught every time
By a sneaker-wearing weapon in the war on crime.
Put a quarter on his can, he'll be your private sleuth.
He always sees the clues he needs to get to the truth.
Can you pick up on the answers that’ve been laid down?
Think about it with Encyclopedia Brown!

It’s a foot stomping rope swinging barrel of fun
There’s something in a book for everyone
To make your heart pound faster and your eyes pop out
And get you so riled up you just gotta shout
The hero of the story is the one you wanna be
I love hanging out with heroes at the library!

The most talented detective in River Heights
She loves to take the case whenever trouble ignites.
Her very best girlfriends George and Bess
Are always glad to help her score another success.
She’ll tackle any situation just to Get a Clue
Launch a new investigation with Nancy Drew!

It’s a foot stomping rope swinging barrel of fun
There’s something in a book for everyone
To make your heart pound faster and your eyes pop out
And get you so riled up you just gotta shout
The hero of the story is the one you wanna be
I love hanging out with heroes at the library!

I say now if you're looking for me, let me tell you where I'll be.
I'll be hanging out with heroes at the library!
I said I gotta shout about from the top of every tree!
I love hanging out with heroes at the library!
