"Ode aos Bibliotecários"

No Mês Internacional das Bibliotecas Escolares...uma Ode, em Inglês, aos Bibliotecários.
Aqui fica a letra e abaixo o vídeo com o Rap!



Whoa, look at all these books! Where am I? Maybe this is one of those... libraries. But if this is a library, then... Hey, wait a second — Who are YOU?

This is the library, come in, have a seat,
Let’s take a trip, you won’t have to leave your feet.
So much media, all for you to see,
I’m a librarian, that’s my J-O-B.

You know us, the librarians at your school,
Media specialists, there’s so much we can do.
We recommend books, yeah, we know the best ones,
That’ll have you all hooked. Now listen, wait, umm...
Nonfiction, fiction, periodicals and sites,
Guide you to information, get you so hyped.
Dante had Virgil, and you’ve got us,
To guide you on that path when you look up.
We pick media — no tweezer,
And the library just got cool — no freezer.
Whether book club, author reading or a lesson,
We make it happen, no stressing.
We don’t just run the library, we teach,
Search better than Google, come and find me.

This is the library, come in, have a seat,
Let’s take a trip, you won’t have to leave your feet.
So much media, all for you to see,
I’m a librarian, that’s my J-O-B.

Now before we move along with the lesson, 

There are a few misconceptions about our profession
.
We don’t read all day, our hair’s not in a bun,
We don’t all wear glassesdon’t always say “Shush.”

 We do love books, we’re the bosses at the internet,
We do provide the freedom to escape the room you’re sitting in
.
Do you want to know more about your favorite band?

The history of your family? Or your native land?

We’re on a quest to teach you how to find the data,
Thinking critically to help you now and later.
We have the books by the rack, look how they stack,
Huey, Louie, Dewey Decimal, we know about that.
Don’t crack the spine of a paperback,
And follow the rules, know how to act.
Bring your curiosity, the sky is the limit,
Grab a book and a friend, get with it — the library.

This is the library, come in, have a seat,
Let’s take a trip, you won’t have to leave your feet.
So much media, all for you to see,
I’m a librarian, that’s my J-O-B.
