I'll Borrow A Book From The Library - sung to "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean"

I'll borrow a book from the library
I'll borrow a book for a week.
I'll borrow a book and I'll read it,
Then I'll bring it right back the next week.
Bring back, bring back,
I'll bring back my library book next week.
Bring back, bring back,
I'll bring back my library book.
