Listening to: James Taylor- Carolina In My Mind

And now, a reciting of one of my favourite books "I Like You" by Sandol Stoddard Warburg:

I like you
And I know why.
I like you because
You are a good person
To Like.
I like you because
When I tell you something special
You know it's special
And you remember it
A long long time.
You say remember when you told me something special
And both of us remember.
When I think something is important
You think it's important too.
We have good ideas.
When i say something funny
You laugh.
I think I'm funny and
You think I'm funny too.
I like you because
You know where I'm ticklish
And you don't tickle me there
Just a little tiny bit
But if you do then I know where to tickle you too.
You know how to be silly.
That's why I like you.
Boy are you ever silly.
I never met anybody sillier than me
      till i met you.
I like you because
You know when it's time to stop being silly.
Maybe day after tomorrow.
Maybe never.
Opps too late.
It's quarter past silly.
Sometimes we don't say a word
If I am a goofus on the roofus
Hollering my head off
You are one too.
That's because
You really like me.
You really like me
Don't you.
And I really like you back.
And you like me back.
And I like you back.
And that's the way we keep on going.
Every day.
And I like you because
When I am feeling sad
You don't always cheer me up right away.
Sometimes it is better to be sad.
I like you because
I dont't know why but
Everything that happens
Is nicer with you.
I can't remember when I didn't like you
It must have been lonesome then.
I like you because because because
I like you for so many reasons I can't remember.
On the fourth of July I like you because
It's the fourth of July.
On the fifth of July I like you too.
If we had some hats and some
Flags and some fire engines
We could be a HOLIDAY.
We could be a CELEBRATION.
We could be a WHOLE PARADE.
See what I mean?
I would go on choosing you.
And you would go on choosing me.
Over and over again.
That's how it would happen every time.
I don't know why.
I guess I don't know why I like you really.
Why do I like you?
I guess I just like you.
I guess I just like you.
Because I like you.
