Paperback Writer lyrics

Paper back writer
(Paperback writer)
(Paperback writer)

Dear Sir or Madam, will you read my book?
It took me years to write, will you take a look?
It's based on a novel by a man named Lear
And I need a job so I want to be
A paperback writer, paperback writer

It's the dirty story of a dirty man
And his cleaning wife just doesn't understand
His son is working for the Daily Mail
It's a steady job but he wants to be
A paperback writer, paperback writer

(Paperback writer)

It's a thousand pages, give or take a few
I'll be writing more in a week or two
I can make it longer if you like the style
I can change it 'round then I want to be
A paperback writer, paperback writer

If you really like it you can have the rights
It could make a million for you overnight
If you must return it, you can send it here
But I need a break and I want to be
A paperback writer, paperback writer
