Nazareth Why Don't You Read The Book Lyrics

Last updated:

Don’t talk to the pilot
When he’s flyin’
Don’t smile at the soldier
He’s on parade

Don’t come creeping round, you’ll
Catch me cryin’
No more talkin’ ‘bout it
It’s all been said

You drawn such a fine line baby
Learnin’ all the rules
Why don’t ya read between them sometimes
You won’t look such a fool

Why don’t you read the book, why don’t you read the book
Why don’t you read the book, why don’t you read the book

Why show all your aces
To the gambler
If he calls your hand
You’re gonna lose
Don’t trust first impressions
Of a stranger
Private information’s
Just tellin’ tales

* You draw such a fine line baby
Learnin’ all the rules
Why don’t ya read between them sometimes
You won’t look such a fool

** Why don’t you read the book, why don’t you read the book
Why don’t you read the book, why don’t you read the book

repeat *

repeat **
