Detroit Book City: Three Current New York Times Bestsellers That Also Could Be KISS Songs

THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO by Stieg Larsson (#10, Fiction)

She’s gonna rock you, boy,
She’s a little temptress! (She’s a real temptress!)
With a drink in her hand,
Dancin’ in her black dress!

She leaves nothing to
Anyone’s imagination,
She’s always teasing
All across the nation!

C’mon now!

She’s the girl (the girl!) the girl (the girl!)
The girl with the dragon tattoo!
She’s the girl (the girl!) the girl (the girl!)
The girl with the dragon tattoo!
And if you don’t be careful
That dragon’s gonna burn you!

Oh, yeah!

SMOKIN’ SEVENTEEN by Janet Evanovich (#13, Fiction)

Let me tell you ‘bout my lady,
The jailbait from your dream,
A babysitter princess who
Dips her cherry in my cream!

I pick her up from school
In my dirty red Ford
I take a drag from my cig
As I make her scream, “Oh Lord!”

She’s smokin’ (whoa-ho-ho)
Oh yeah she’s smokin’ (yeah yeah hey)
She’s smokin’ smokin’ smokin’ seventeen!

When’s your daddy comin’ home?

HEAVEN IS FOR REAL by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent (#4, Non-Fiction)

I know it’s hard,
I know you’re done,
I know you’re packin’ your bags
And makin’ a midnight run …
You say I don’t love you,
Well, baby, you’re wrong,
If I didn’t love you,
Why am I singin’ this song?

I know this isn’t the life you want,
With love that you gotta steal,
Because, everytime I close my eyes,
I know heaven is for real …

Oh, yeah, heaven is for real …
It’s right here, baby…
—Louis Fowler
