Bookmobile Songs

To the tune "Up On The Housetop"

Out on the sidewalk patrons pause
Then shout out some big guffaws
The bookmo is broken down in the road
Tipped to the side with its heavy load.

Chorus
Oh no no!
It won't go!
Oh no no!
Mechanics are slooowww.
Trapped for repairs
Wait wait wait
Give it back
We're running late!

We're taking the van, it's getting tight
All those holds for Mrs. White!
Then comes the blizzard, blinding snow.
Now we're stuck, the van won't go!

Chorus
Oh no no!
It won't go!
Oh no no!
Mechanics are slooowww.
Trapped for repairs
Wait wait wait
Give it back
We're running late!

New year comes and patrons say,
"We just can't go on this way!"
Gift of a million in our mail
We buy a 'mo big enough to sail.

Chorus
Go go go!
No more tow!
Go go go!

Rain, sleet or snooowww.
Never again we're broken down,
Zoom zoom zoom
All over town!

To the tune "The Wheels go Round"

The bookmobile goes round and round, round and round, round and round
The Bookmobile goes round and round all through the town
(moving hands in a driving motion)

The People on the bus they love our books, love our books, love our books
The People on the bus they love our books all through the town
(cross your arms across your chest in a hugging motion)

The computers on the bus go type type type, type type type, type type type
The computers on the bus go type type type all though the town
(typing motion)

The books on the bus get all checked out, all checked out, all checked out
The books on the bus get all checked out, all through the town
(Reaching motion, as if taking books off a shelf)

And now it's time for us to go, us to go, us to go
And now it's time for us to go, We'll see you all next time
(waving motion)
