“So, what do you go for in a girl?”
He crows, lifting the lager to his lips.
He gestures where his mate sits and downs his glass.
“He prefers tits. I prefer ass. What do you go for in a girl?”
Well, I feel quite uncomfortable.
The air left the room a long time ago,
all eyes are on me.
Well, if you must know.

I like a girl who reads.
Yeah. Reads.
I’m not trying to call you a chauvinist,
because I know you’re not alone in this
but…

I like a girl who reads.
Who needs the written word
and uses the added vocabulary.
She gleans from novels and poetry
to hold lively conversation
in a range of social situations.

I like a girl who reads.
Who’s heart bleeds at the words of Graham Greene,
or even Heat magazine.
Who ties back her hair
while reading Jane Eyre,
and goes cover to cover 
with each waterstones 
three for two offer
but I want a girl who doesn’t stop there.

I want a girl who reads.
Who feeds her addiction
for fiction
with unusual poems and plays
that she hunts out in crooked bookshops for days
and days and days.
She’ll sit addicted at breakfast, 
soaking up the back of the cornflakes box
And the info she gets form what she reads
makes her a total fox.
Because she’s interesting and she’s unique.
And her theories make me go weak
at the knees.

I want a girl who reads.
A girl whose eyes will analyse
the menu over dinner.
Who’ll use what she learns to kick my ass in arguments,
so she always ends the winner.
But she’ll be sweet and she’ll still be flirty
‘Cause she loves the classics,
and they’re pretty dirty.
And that means late at night she’d always have me in a stupor
As we reenact  the raunchy bits from the works
Of Jilly Cooper.

See, some guys prefer asses.
Some prefer tits.
And I’m not saying I don’t like
those bits.
But what’s more important
what supersedes
Is a girl with passion, 
wit and dreams.
So, I like a girl who reads.

Bloody brilliant. And more than a little sexy.

I WANT A GIRL WHO READS
Mark Grist

“So, what do you go for in a girl?”
He crows, lifting a lager to his lips
Gestures where his mate sits
Downs his glass
“He prefers tits,
I prefer arse.
What do you go for in a girl?”

I don’t feel comfortable
The air left the room a long time ago
All eyes are on me
Well, if you must know

I like a girl who reads
Yeah. Reads.
I’m not trying to call you a chauvinist
Cos I know you’re not alone in this
but…

I want a girl who reads
Who needs the written word
And uses the added vocabulary
She gleans from novels and poetry
To hold lively conversation
In a range of social situations

I want a girl who reads

Or even Heat magazine
Who’ll tie back her hair while reading Jane Eyre
and goes cover to cover with each Waterstones three for two offer
but I want a girl who doesn’t stop there

I want a girl who reads
Who feeds her addiction for fiction
With unusual poems and plays

And the information she gets from what she reads makes her a total fox

I want a girl who reads

A girl who’s eyes will analyze

Who’ll use what she learns to kick my ass in arguments
so she always ends the winner
But she’ll still be sweet and she’d still be flirty
Cos she loves the classics and the classics are dirty
So late at night she’d always have me in a stupor
As she paraphrases the raunchier moments from the works of Jilly Cooper

See, some guys prefer arses
Some prefer tits
And I’m not saying that I don’t like those bits
But what’s more important
What supersedes for me
Is a girl a with passion, wit and dreams
So I want a girl who reads.
