lyrics

Don’t burn books burn your iPad instead
Throw some kindles on the fire ‘till it’s all just twisted melting wire (x2)

It’s not uncommon to catch myself
having stared at my laptop all day long
and I think, Why don’t I read a book or go outside

Don’t burn books burn your iPad instead
throw some kindles on the fire ‘till it’s all just twisted melting wire
Don’t burn books burn your iPhone instead
crush your android with some pliers
till it’s all just twisted mangled wire

Somehow I don’t really feel like checking my e-mail
or even my facebook page
I’d rather write an old fashioned letter
or maybe just go out and play

Don’t burn books burn your iPad instead
throw some kindles on the fire ‘till it’s all just twisted melting wire
Don’t burn books. Smash your laptop instead
You can’t punch me in the Facebook
when I’m outside riding bikes instead
Don’t burn books burn your iPhone instead
crush your android with some pliers
till it’s all just twisted mangled wire….

Turn it Turn it off (etc.)
Sometimes I think that I can't turn it off anymore (x4)

Don’t burn books burn your iPad instead
Throw some kindles on the fire ‘till it’s all just twisted melting wire (x2)
