Librarians do Gaga.

Wow, this is kind of lighting up the intertubes.

I’ve had at least one request for the lyrics to my “Librarians do Gaga” version of Poker Face. Here they are!

You got a question that is causing you some pain
Typin’ keywords into the search engine again.
Look your naïve searching just ain’t gonna get it done
Cause when it comes to search if it’s not tough it isn’t fun (fun)

Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
I’ll blow your mind, show you how to find.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
I’ll blow your mind, show you how to find.

Can use my
Can use my
Yeah you can use my catalog
(Don’t forget the databases)
Can use my
Can use my
Yeah you can use my catalog
(Don’t forget the databases)

Ca-ca-ca-catalog ca-ca-catalog
(Mum mum mum mah)
Ca-ca-ca-catalog ca-ca-catalog
(Mum mum mum mah)

This keyword search it gives you way too many hits
Boolean limits pare things down to just what fits
Use the thesaurus to find subject terms that work
Then in just one minute you’ll be through like Captain Kirk (Kirk)

[Chorus]

We love the Big 6, baby!

Step one define your problem
Pick your sources.
Then go huntin’. We’re not puntin’
On the research. We’re engaging and extracting somethin’
Then you can put it back together
Tell your friends about your awesomeness
It’s synthesis synthesis
Evaluate cause we’re into this.

Feel free to host singalongs, but please don’t duplicate these without linking back to this site and crediting me.

Thanks for watching!

  1. Hi Sarah!
    I’m so excited to be singing along with your song and dress up like the GAGA at our annual state library conference in Georgia Oct. 13-15, 2010! Trent Hill is an old friend and he said he asked you if it would be okay and you said yes. Thank you, and I look forward to having a great time with your creativity! I do this as I call out the winners of our Georgia Library Association Scholarship Raffle! Thanks. Carol Stanley, President Georgia Library Association
