lyrics

(Schwartz, Lindsay Schwartz)


I see you standing there beside the stacks
I found the right call number but you stop me in my tracks
Looking through your glasses at the writing on the spine
And I knew we’d have to find a little quiet time

Now I see the book I need and it’s on the top shelf
You get it down for me asking, “anything else?”
When we’re at circulation and I’m checking it out
Do you remember that one thing that you were asking about?

Love, love, love librarian
Got an overdue fine on my heart
Love, love, love librarian
You introduced me to Rousseau and Descartes

Now I know that you’re not trying but it’s awfully mean
When you’re not behind the desk I use the checkout machine
We’re past the introduction and in the development
But I wanna reach the climax before our book gets lent

Come on baby why you hatin’?
There ain’t nobody behind me waitin’
I couldn’t be more plain in statin’ that you’re my
Love, love, love librarian
Got an overdue fine on my heart
Love, love, love librarian
Our story ended before it could start

I just want to be kissing but that Dewey Decimal System
Doesn’t have a section just for romance
I wanna scream and shout and show you what I’m all about
But you’re just alphabetizing in Finance
So come on baby
(Baby can I check you out?)

Come on baby why you hatin’?
There ain’t nobody behind me waitin’
I couldn’t be more plain in statin’ that you’re my

Love, love, love librarian
Got an overdue fine on my heart
Love, love, love librarian
I wanna lay you right down on your cart
Forget the movies
Got an overdue fine on my heart!
