Tell me a story I want to know,
I will listen to each word watch the story unfold.
Tell me a story about the good and the bad,
I want the truth the happy and the sad.
Tell me a story that’s true to life,
I want to know about the fights.
Tell me a story of beauty and flowers.
The wind and the rain and all natures powers,
Tell me a story a picture of peace.
Then tell me all about the peoples needs.
Tell me a story about grave immortal danger,
The one about the tall dark stranger.
Tell me a story that will make me feel happy again
To make me laugh and then let’s start reading another again.
