You will not read this book today!
You will not read this book I say!
This book, this very book you see,
Tis' offensive, it may be.
You will not read it in a box.
You will not read it to a fox.
You will not read it here or there.
You must not read it anywhere!
Not out in public, or in a house,
You must not read it to a mouse.
You will not read it on a boat,
You will not read to a goat.
To do so you would be mistook,
This book is full of gobbledygook.
This book is pure nonsense, it's nothing but trash,
Follow me, I'll show you why in a dash.
Reading is awful, reading is bad,
Reading makes late-night talk show hosts mad.
To read is to hear things, to hear new ideas.
Who needs them my boy? Just ask the hyenas!
Stuff like freedom and speech, you don't need those things,
Love the State and Big Brother, and all that he brings.
Love the State I say, you don't need to learn,
No, only Big Brother alone can discern.
He knows what is best and he knows what you say,
He'll save you the trouble of thinking today.
Don't read this book, you don't need that dreck!
