Kindle In The Wind

Goodbye paperbacks
Though I've got a load of you at home
You pose a minor bulk problem
When I'm reading on the roam
They have this neat new gadget
And it's lighter than my brain
All the books are virtual
Though the price is oft the same

[chorus]

And it seems to me that what we need
Is a Kindle in the wind
Never turning pages over
When the breeze blows in
And I would have liked to have one
When I was just a kid
I had so many schoolbooks in my desk
I could never close the lid

Reading books was tough
When they were on computer screens
Amazon created a super toy
About a ton was the price you paid
Though it seems a lot
Oh it's really small potatoes next
To the paper you could save
And you can get a cover or keep it nude

[chorus]
And it seems to me that what we need
Is a Kindle in the wind
Never turning pages over
When the breeze blows in
And I would have liked to have one
When I was just sixteen
Easier for reading with one hand
Some virtual magazines


Goodbye paperbacks
Now I'm really running out of shelves
I've had to go and get this toy
Made by Amazon's little elves
Goodbye paperbacks
From the young man who loved all his books so
It's really quite something - but not sexual
More just sort of biblical, you know

[chorus]
And it seems to me that what we need
Is a Kindle in the wind
Never turning pages over
When the breeze blows in
And now I'm out to sell an ebook
Evil UnLimited
It's really something special
For just under two quid

Hey, how about giving us Barnes and Noble Nook fans some love? ;-)

Ack! Never mind, I see you have it at Smashswords, which supports EPUB -> which supports the Nook. :)
