  • Song Lyrics:
    Well, you should see my story reading baby, you should hear the things that she says,
    She says, "Hon, drop dead, I'd rather go to bed with Gabriel Garcia Marquez."


    Cuddle up with William S. Burrows, leave on the light for Bell Hooks,
    I've been flirtin' with Pierre Burton 'cause he's so smart in his books

    I like to go out dancing,
    My baby loves a bunch of authors
    My heart's so broke and bleedin'
    Baby's just sitting there
    doing some reading

    So I started watching some TV, played my new CD player too,
    She said, "Turn it off or I'll call the cops and I'll throw the book at you."
    All this arguing made me get dizzy, called my doctor to come have a look
    I said, "Doctor hurry!" He said,
    "Don't worry, I'll be over when I finish my book"

    I like to go out dancing,
    My baby loves a bunch of authors
    We've been livin' in hovels
    Spendin' all our money on
    brand new novels

    So I got myself on a streetcar and it drove right into someone,
    You know the driver said:

    'I was lookin' straight ahead!'

    But he was reading the Toronto Sun


    So my honey and me go to a counselor to help figure out what we need
    She said, "We'll get your love growing,

    but before we get going, here's some books I'd like you to read."

    I like to go out dancing,
    My baby loves a bunch of authors
    Lately, we've had some friction
    'Cause my baby's hooked on
    short works of fiction

    So we split and went to a party, some friends my girl said she knew
    But what a sight, 'cause it's authors night and the place looks like a who's who

    Now I'm pounding the ouzo
    with Mario Puzo
    Who's a funny fella?
    W.P. Kinsella

    Who brought the cat?
    Would Margeret Atwood?

    Who needs a shave?
    He's Robertson Davies!

    Ondaatje started a food fight, salmon mousse all over the scene
    Spilled some dressing on Doris Lessing, these writer types are a scream!

    I like to go out dancing,
    My baby loves a bunch of authors
    We'll be together for ages

    Eatin' and Sleepin' and
    Eatin' and Sleepin' and
    Eating und Sleeping und
    Turnin' pages.
