"Paperback Writer" Lyrics

Paul McCartney

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 wanna be a paperback writer
Paperback writer

It's a 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 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 and I wanna be a paperback writer
Paperback writer

If you really like it you can help me write
It can make a million for you overnight
If you must return it you can send it here
But I need a break and I wanna be a paperback 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 break so I wanna be a paperback writer
Paperback writer, paperback writer

Paperback writer, paperback writer
Paperback writer, paperback writer
