Paperbacks

TTTO “Paper Moon” from Seanan McGuire’s “Stars Fall Home”

I think that I read too much sci-fi
I’m gonna switch to books that make me cry
I wanna go to a con about romance
But I don’t think I’m gonna get my chance
Though that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped for good
I’ll still read what junk sci-fi I could
So tell my friends that I’m jumping ship
And I’ll just ignore them if they’re giving lip

I don’t want to have to think of rules,
This science stuff for me is much too hard
For robots and these other tools —
I think my mind’s by now already scarred
But just because I wanna turn brain off
I want a veg out read, I want to rest my mind
I don’t think that you should at me so scoff
Don’t think that I am m not as refined

[Chorus]
Paperbacks and romance stuff
Lots and lots and lots of fluff
I can read forever never think too much
And the heroes don’t do more than touch

I don’t want to live so afraid to read
And this sci-fi stuff makes my mind leak out
I think that what I now so need
Is a story that is of love about
I’ll get these books now, ten for five
They’re all the same, on this I thrive
So tell my friends that I’m jumping ship
And I’ll just ignore them if they’re giving lip

[Chorus]

I think that I read too much sci-fi
I’m gonna switch to books that make me cry
I wanna go to a con about romance
But I don’t think I’m gonna get my chance
Though that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped for good
I’ll still read what junk sci-fi I could
So tell my friends that I’m jumping ship
And I’ll just ignore them if they’re giving lip

[Chorus]
