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

.

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
