Library Girl

Ever heard a song about a girl who works in a library, reads Chaucer, and drink her coffee black? No? Well, I found one while jumping from one Tumblr blog to another, and I just had to share it with all of you. Gawd, this song had me swooning like a pre-adolescent girl at the sight of Justin Bieber. It's a song about a bookworm finding romance! A bookworm finding romance, I repeat! Here's Library Girl by Reina del Cid:



Ze Lyrics:

To all kindred nerds.

Shelving books on the night shift
It takes some time, but I guess I like it
Dewey's decimals keep me company

Out the window, you are dancing
With those girls who can't stop laughing
Lip-gloss, too hot, fake-baked drama queens

You were drinking a margarita
I was reading My Antonia
I got to thinking that

I don't fit inside that world
And I'm not like those other girls
Oh no, I'm not, I think a lot
But please don't be afraid

Just 'cause I navigate the media
And use encyclopedias
It doesn't mean that I don't need
A boy just like you to talk to

Set my cup back on its saucer
At the coffee shop, reading Chaucer
With my iPod on my favorite track

The girls you're with get turtle lattes
Decaf, skim-based, extra frothy
But you and I both drink our coffee black

You were talking about ACDC
And I was playing my Puccini
I got to thinking that

Repeat Chorus

You can buy me a margarita
And I will lend you My Antonia
You can take me to ACDC
And I'll play you my Puccini
It doesn't matter that

I don't fit inside that world
I'm not like those other girls
Oh no, I'm not, I think a lot
But you are not afraid.

That I navigate the media
And use encyclopedias
It doesn't mean that I don't need
A boy just like you to talk to

Oh my gosh, I am totally in love with this. Do you mind if I share on Twitter?

I wish I worked in a library!

You should read "The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ". it would be interesting for me to get a religious viewpoint on it too.

I don't want to spoil His Dark Materials for you but there is some anti-religion stuff in the third book especially. It hasn't been a problem for most, but a vocal minority opposed it and then boycotted the first film when it came out.

I love it! How fun! Thanks for sharing, I'd never have come across that otherwise. (And now I have a new song stuck in my head!)

I love it too! Though I'm not sure she should go for the AC/DC guy... :D Thanks for posting it!

I'm completely in love with this song. My favorite parts "You were drinking a margarita,
I was reading My Antonia." So glad you posted this.
