Looking For Treasure

Looking For Treasure By R.e. Taylor I want to go out Spend the day treasure hunting No, I don’t need no map Don’t need no “X” marks the spot I will find it all on my own I want to search the backstreets The alleyways where no one goes Maybe find an old bookstore Not one of those mass-market stores No neon light or organized shelves I want books on the floor, on pine shelves And someone who understand books Their the ones who should be running the place And I sure don’t want me no Stephen King No Anne Rice or Dean Coontz I want me some Douglas Adams, Louis L’Amour And for sure some Agatha Christie I will keep looking for that bookstore Searching day and day for years I know it’s there It has to be I just have to find it.
