Lyrics:

Paperback writer
Dear Sir or Madam will you read my book
It took me years to write, will you take a look
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 clinging wife doesn’t understand
His son is working for the Daily Mail
It’s a steady job
But he want 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
and 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 if you can send it here
But I need a break
and I want to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer
Paperback writer
Paperback writer
Paperback writer
