lyrics

Geek to Chic
J. Sule and G. Rogers March, 2014.

Verse 1
In the Library there’s a secret passion
Shared by many of the workers there
It’s revealed in the week of ID Fashion
When they change into glamorous gear

Chorus
Come and see the library girls do their catwalk strut
Come and see the library girls shake their stuff
And kick off their sensible shoes
Check out the library girls gliding sleek and smooth
Changed from Geek to Chic

Verse 2
Don’t be fooled by her innocent expression
The Library Ma’am is a passionate thing
She’d be first to make a full confession
To being partial to a fashional fling

Chorus
Come and see …

Verse 3
See the swirl of iridescent fabric
See the detail in the applique
Library models show their taste for classics
In a fashion that’s a tad risqué

Chorus
Come and see the library girls do their catwalk strut
Come and see the library girls shake their stuff
And kick off their sensible shoes
Come and see the library girls do their catwalk strut
Come and see the library girls shake their stuff
And kick off their sensible shoes
Check out the library girls gliding sleek and smooth
Changed from Geek to Chic. Changed from Geek to Chic!

Both Sides of the Line's cd, Sideshow, is " a record chock full of slinky country tunes, built upon 21st Century ‘adult contemporary’ bones. Digging a little beneath the surface you will find cooing swing come-ons here (Magical Man), fleeting touches of Americana there (Macs General Store), rockabilly beats and soft rock tendencies throughout." (Ricardo Kerr, NZ Musician). ... more
