Come together @ your library

The 'merkin library association has announced that "Come together @ your library" is the 2007 National Library Week theme.

I was so impressed by this that I decided to write a song to commemorate.
So following on from my 'footloose' triumph, I decided to make this one a bit more Baby Boomer, after all they're going to be the only ones impressed by "Come together @ your library".

And am I the only one who worries that this sounds a bit like some sort of theme based internet porn site? (as it turns out, I was not the only person to think this and as evidence I give you the attached image which was stolen from Jessamyn)

Here comes ol' library
She come walkin' round slowly
She's got watchin' you' eyeballs
She one scary lady
She got hair buned on her head
Got to be librarian you just do what she said
She wear no shoeheels
She's got catalogue thinking
She's got shushin finger
She shoot silent glare
She say "I know you, you know me"
One thing I can tell you book got to be free
Come together right now @ your library
She bag your checkouts
She got date due printing
She got overdue warning
She one fine collector
She got feet down through her stocking
Reading in an armchair
You can feel her watching
Come together right now @ your library
She reading poster
She's got reading fiction
She's got int'net access
She got Porno filter
She say "One and one and one is ontology"
Got to be smart thinking 'cause she's got library degree
Come together right now @ your library

Oh ...thank you! I needed that as I was sitting here waiting for the weekend to begin.
ROTFLMAO. Just what I needed.
(I like it better than Footloose).

See this is why NSFW is an important HTML tag. You're getting skiving people into even more trouble with your crazy photoshop antics!

I keep forgetting that the rest of the world has a different concept of NSFW. To my mind there is nothing NSFW about this. Sure there is nudity, but it not explicit. There is no visible genitalia nor even nipple, breast or bottom action (other than a little side cheek)
All in all you'd see more flesh at a town swimming pool in Taliban controlled parts of Afganistan.
There'd be more flesh on display at a hill$ong children's conference...
