High On Reading!
When I read it’s like I’m smoking weed
The more I read
The more I need
I get so high on reading books
I be so high I feel so cooked
Different books is like different weeds
Every time I pick up a book I have got lots to read
When I read all my problems float away
I read so much it feels like I’m high all day
I read to get high
I read to get fly
The more I read the more I get by
I get so high on reading
So more books is what I am needing!
(Instead of smoking weed, you should read)
