It’s a Mystery to Me
Written for the Library Summer Reading theme 2007: "Get a Clue @ the Library". We used this song to start off our show that year entitled "The Case of the Missing Book".
I’m searchin’ everywhere for my mystery book
I’ve tried every place, I don’t know where else to look
I don’t have a clue about where my book could be
I don’t know what will happen - it’s a mystery to me
I was a reading a great mystery from the library in town
It was so exciting that I couldn’t put it down
That book really had me on the edge of my seat
then I heard my parents call - it was time for me to eat
I didn’t want to stop, but my parents insisted
I inhaled my dinner - if you blinked, you would have missed it
I ran back to my room to start reading again
But that book could not be found where I was sure it just had been -
I went to ask my sister where my mystery could be
But she just made a face and said, "Don’t ask me!"
I went and asked my dad if he could help me with my search
He said he was too busy - he just left me in the lurch
I asked my mom to help me find my missing book
But she just said I’d find it, if I really tried to look
I’m begging for assistance - I’ll get down on my knees
I’ve got to learn what happens - won’t someone help me, please?
(Inst. - Chorus)
Q. Did you leave it at school? A. Do you think I’m a fool?
Q. Is it under your bed" A. I looked there already!
Q. Is it somewhere in your room? A. I fear this search is doomed!
Q. Is it under there? A. Under where? Q. I made you say underwear! Ha! A. (groan)
(Chorus), I don’t know where to find it - it’s a mystery to me!
[Spoken:] Oh, THERE it is! Nevermind...
