The Book Rack

I walked to 13 Medford Street
and popped into the Book Rack.
It's always an inviting atmosphere.
There's a bunch of smart ladies (plus Mike).

I popped into the Book Rack
to say hello and talk summer reading
with a bunch of smart ladies (plus Mike)
familiar to me from years of browsing.

I said hello and talked summer reading
with Brenda and Ann and Roxie
familiar to me from years of browsing.
I even bought some second-hand books!

With Brenda and Ann and Roxie,
you can make special orders
and even buy some second-hand books:
Seamus Heaney, Nora Roberts, Pema Chödrön.

You can make special orders;
they'll arrive within the week--
Seamus Heaney, Nora Roberts, Pema Chödrön--
they come from vast warehouses!

They'll arrive within the week
from places close by and far off;
they come from vast warehouses
with thousands of hardcovers and paperbacks.

From places close by and far off,
people walk into 13 Medford Street.
With thousands of hardcovers and paperbacks,
it's always an inviting atmosphere.
