about

An upbeat anthem for the big, winged, red guy whose father was a library, and for all fun teachers, librarians, and sidekicks everywhere!

lyrics

A-B-C-D-E-F-G

H-I -J -K ELL!

Just a little different, just a little shy
A heart so big and red as mine is difficult to hide
I know I come on pretty strong,
But I'll be your better shadow if you let me tag along
It's a strange place to be, but I know my way around.
Not a soul here can fly, but there are riches on the ground
so don't you dare be afraid. I am here by your side
It's confusing out there, but I won't leave you high and dry.

Ask me anything
and I'll help you find your way.
For adventuring,
this could be your lucky day!
Never fear, my dear.
If the answer isn't plain to see,
cross-reference and you'll find
the key!

Just a little funny, just a little loud,
know-how enough to do a library proud.
I know I talk too much sometimes,
But tell me all your wishes and I'll listen every time!
It's a strange place to be when you don't know where you're bound,
But I'll walk right beside you, and I'll never let you down!
Oh, let all the lions threaten me!
Courage follows friendship to the bottom of the sea!

Ask me anything,
and I'll help you find your way.
For adventuring,
this could be your lucky day!
Never fear, my dear.
If the answer isn't plain to see,
cross-reference and you'll find it!


Twelve of twenty-six and one of three makes me,
lemon ices melting by degrees.
Soon we'll lose our chains and we will
all fly free.
Never fear and put your trust in me!

I will walk and I will dance,
but flying's got to wait
until I'm not the only one,
and joy can never come too late!
It's a strange place to be when you cannot spread your wings,
but even bound as we are, we can do all sorts of things!
So don't you dare be afraid. Just you hold your head up high.
Never mind the ones who tell you you're too big and bold and bright!

ASK ME ANYTHING,
and I'll help you find your way!
For adventuring,
this could be your lucky day!
Never fear, my dear!
If the answer isn't plain to see,
cross-reference and you'll find
the key!
