    As requested, the lyrics:

    If You Love to Read

    There's a story waiting to be told
    Waiting for all of us, whether we're young or old
    The story is in there if you take a look
    Go 'head and and open up, the pages of a book
    If you ask me, I will read with you
    Don't underestimate the things that books can do
    There's a story waiting to be told
    Waiting for all of us, whether we're young or old

    The stories inside can open your mind
    They've got me wishing now that I could read them all
    The stories inside can take you for a ride
    I can't help feeling

    That you can have it all
    (I really wish you, you would read to me)
    If you love to read
    (Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
    The stories there, just turn the page
    (I really wish you, you would read to me)
    You can find it, in a book
    (Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)

    Books they have a story they will tell
    Comedy, comic, romance, horror,
    and poetry as well

    When I'm feeling like there's no place for me
    I know I'll always feel at home
    in a library

    (I really wish you, you would read to me)
    The stories inside can open your mind
    (Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
    They've got me wishing now that I could read them all
    (I really wish you, you would read to me)
    The stories inside can take you for a ride
    (Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
    I can't help feeling that

    You can have it all
    (I really wish you, you would read to me)
    If you love to read
    (Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
    The stories there, just turn the page
    (I really wish you, you would read to me)
    You can find it, in a book
    (Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
    You can have it all
    If you love to read
    The stories there, just turn the page
    You can find it, in a book

    Throw yourself into every open book (woah)
    There's something for everyone if you take a look (woah)
    Turn the pages, and then before you know (woah)
    Books will pay you back in kind just watch your knowledge grow

    (I really wish you, you would read to me)
    You can have it all
    (Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
    You can have it all
    (I really wish you, you would read to me)
    It all, it all, it all
    (Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)

    You can have it all
    (I really wish you, you would read to me)
    If you love to read
    (Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
    The stories there, just turn the page
    (I really wish you, you would read to me)
    You can find it, in a book
    (Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)

    You can have it all
    (I really wish you, you would read to me)
    If you love to read
    (Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
    The stories there, just turn the page
    (I really wish you, you would read to me)

    (Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)

    You'll find it
    You'll find it
    You'll find it
    You'll find it in a book. Show less
