paperback writer lyrics – 10cc

sir or madam, would 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 and i want to be a paperback writer
paperback writer

it’s the dirty story about a dirty man
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
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 shorter if you like the style
but i need a break and i wanna 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 wanna be a paperback writer
paperback writer

paperback writer
paperback writer

sir or madam, would 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 and i wanna be a paperback writer
paperback writer

it’s a dirty story about 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
paperback writer

paperback writer

paperback writer
paperback writer

paperback writer
paperback writer
