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
An Oklahoma hero is what I wanna be
I love hanging out with heroes at the library!

He was a fancy trick roper on Vaudeville
But his clever commentary moved him up the bill
By the thirties he was famous as a Hollywood star
He wrote a daily quote that people read near and far
He could poke good fun at anyone from babies to codgers
Check out a chuckle at the library with Will Rogers

Cause 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
An Oklahoma hero is what I wanna be
I love hanging out with heroes at the library!

His friends thought that he had gone insane
But this Cherokee silversmith was using his brain
He invented a system he called talking leaves
It was an alphabet that let his people write and read
Now His name is on a book award so you can enjoy a
Winner at the library with Sequoyah

Cause 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
An Oklahoma hero is what I wanna be
I love hanging out with heroes at the library!

The most decorated gymnast in the USA
Her attitude keeps her Winning Every Day.
Even when the press said, "You're too old!"
She proved 'em all wrong and won an olympic gold
Her bar, beam, floor routines, and vaults are all killer
Turn a handspring at the library with Shannon Miller.

Cause 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
An Oklahoma hero is what I wanna be
I love hanging out with heroes at the library!

He was born Frank Eaton in the wild wild west
But his nickname proved he could shoot the best.
He was a rootin' tootin' lawman who rarely fail
To put the bad guys out or bring 'em in to jail
You see his likeness where the OSU Cowboys meet
Fill your hands at the library with Pistol Pete

Cause 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
An Oklahoma hero is what I wanna be
I love hanging out with heroes at the library!

If you're lookin' for me let me tell you where I'll be.
I'll be hanging out with heroes at the library.
I've got to shout about it from the top of every tree!
I love hanging out with heroes at the library!
