Who cares, book-o-philes
About this doctor of silly [Dr. Seuss reading in a library]
Who seemingly wrote about
Yet if closer we look
At his stories and words
About Sneedles and Sneetches
And Zinn-a-zu birds [Magnifying glass showing things from the book]
We see that the subtexts
Contain lessons and morals
About communism, warfare
And political quarrels [Pictures of hammer and sickle, soldier and politicians]
Oh sure, the pictures are cute
And the words fun to say [Cat wearing a hat]
But there’s so so much more
At the end of the day
His stories can teach us about
Sharing and caring [Two girls playing together]
And lift up our spirits
When we’re prone to despairing
He asks us to look at the world with new eyes [Earth in space]
Using wockets in pockets
Or a Grinch in disguise.
So if you’re ready to let
These books under your skin, [Guys head opens and books are put in]
Enter. Take a seat.
The doctor…is in. [Guy sat in doctor's' office]
