This article is from the Libraries FAQ, by Anthony Wilson paw@iglou.com with numerous contributions by others.

7.5 Where can I find the lyrics for songs with libraries in them?

The DRA Librarian's Library,
http://www.dra.com/resources/library/playitsam.htm, has the lyrics to
songs about libraries.

Yahoo lists a large number of lyric pages, many with searchable
databases:
http://www.yahoo.com/Entertainment/Music/Composition/Lyrics_and_Notation/Lyrics/

A great site is The Mudcat Cafe Digital Tradition Folk Song Database,
http://www.mudcat.org/folksearch.html which contains the words and
music to thousands of folk songs, including:

THE BOLD LIBRARIAN
(Joy Rutherford)
http://www.mudcat.org/!!-song99.cfm?stuff=Spring98+D+1433884
"He's the bold librarian.
Now, this librarian, he rode out all in the dewy morn,
Come in my bold librarian, and I'll mek thee a pot of tea."

From the unofficial web site of the former FOX and now Sci-Fi channel
TV show Sliders: http://www.brillig.com/sliders/earth-prime.shtml

"Library Rap"

Yo Homes, what's up?
What up with you?
Whatcha' gonna say?
Whatcha' gonna do?
Where you gonna go?
What we gonna see?
We're goin' to the li-bra-ree.

I'm moving down the aisle with my Homeys in tow
We're grovin' through the home of the librarian Ho
She checks us out from behind thick glasses
We walk right past and we wiggle our asses

Hemingway... Lawrence... Checkhov and Miller
Fitzgerald was a freak, Mailer is a killer...

Quiet pleeease!
Quiet pleeease!

The silence is golden
To books I am beholden
I know I'm bad
'Cuz of the knowledge that I'm holdin'
And I give you one warnin'
There will be no repeats
Get out of my face
While I'm readin' my Keats

"Library Rap" performed by MC Poindexter & The Study Crew
