"I'm Afraid of Librarians"

Because exactly one person demanded it:


(Sung to the tune of David Bowie's "I'm Afraid of Americans")

J. F. Lewis's "I'm Afraid of Librarians"


John is in a library, no one at the desk

No-one helps anyone, the whole library's a test John is in a library

I'm afraid of Librarians

I'm afraid of their world

I fear the card catalogue

Electronic, too-

I'm afraid of Librarians

I'm afraid of their world

I fear the card catalogue

Electronic, too-

I'm afraid of Librarians

John is in a Library


John he wants silence, John he wants to go for a smoke

John he hates children, to him story time is a joke

John is in a library


I'm afraid of Librarians

I'm afraid of their world

I fear the card catalogue

Electronic, too-

I'm afraid of Librarians

I'm afraid of their world

I fear the card catalogue

Electronic, too-

I'm afraid of Librarians


John he's in the stacks where people hide old porno mags

John hates other patrons, when he thinks of them he gags

John is in a library

John is in a library


I'm afraid of Librarians

I'm afraid of their world

I fear the card catalogue

Electronic, too-

I'm afraid of Librarians

I'm afraid of their world

I fear the card catalogue

Electronic, too-

Yeah, I'm afraid of Librarians

I'm afraid of their world

I fear the card catalogue

Electronic, too-

I'm afraid of Librarians


God is a librarian

God is a librarian

God is a librarian

God is a librarian

God is a librarian

God is a librarian

God is a librarian

God is a librarian

God is a librarian

God is a librarian

God is a librarian

God is a librarian

God is a librarian

God is a librarian

God is a librarian

God is a librarian

God is a librarian

God is a librarian


Note: While I *am* indeed afraid of librarians, this is just a silly song brought on by a fun conversation at the Imagicon NaNoWriMo Event last Sunday.

I don't know if God is a librarian, but librarians definitely are gods when it comes to book knowledge.

(My sister is a children's librarian. She knows every children's & teen's book ever written - screw the card catalog - she's a walking encyclopedia. And she's the nicest librarian you'll ever meet. However, don't ever mess with her books or her library and for God's sake don't question her knowledge.)
