I'll never forget the day I read a book - Jimmy Durante

(I'LL NEVER FORGET) THE DAY I READ A BOOK (Jimmy Durante and Jackie Barnett) 
There's one day that I recall, though it was years ago. 
All my life I will remember it, I know. 
I'll never forget the day I read a book. 
It was contagious, seventy pages. 
There were pictures here and there, 
So it wasn't hard to bear, 
The day I read a book. 
It's a shame I don't recall the name of the book. 
It wasn't a history. I know because it had no plot. 
It wasn't a mystery, because nobody there got shot. 
The day I read a book ? I can't remember when, 
But one o' these days, I'm gonna do it again. 
SPOKEN: Ah, lit'rature! There's nothin' like sittin' home...
