      G
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,
                                               C
And I need a job so I want to be a paperback writer


           G      (riff 1)
Paperback writer


        G
It's a dirty story of a dirty man

And his clinging wife doesn't understand

His son is working for the Daily Mail
                                                   C
It's a steady job but he wants to be a paperback writer,
             G
Paper back writer.


Paperback writer...


          G
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
                                                      C
I can change it 'round and I want to be a paperback writer
             G    (riff 1)
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
                                                 C
But I need a break and I want to be a paperback writer
            G
