VERSE

     G5

Dear Sir or Madam, will you read my book?

           G5

It took me years to write, will you take a look

     G5

It's based on a novel by a man named Lear

      G5                                     C

And I need a job so I want to be a paperback writer

          G5

Paperback writer [RIFF]

VERSE

       G5

It's a dirty story of a dirty man

        G5

And his clinging wife doesn't understand

    G5

His son is working for the Daily Mail

       G5                                        C

It's a steady job but he wants to be a paperback writer

VERSE

       G5

It's a thousand pages, give or take a few

      (Frè        -            re)

        G5

I'll be writing more in a week or two

       (Jaaa       -      cques)

      G5

I can make it longer if you like the style          

     (Frè        -          re)

      G5                                            C

I can change it 'round and I want to be a paperback writer

     (Jaaa         -         cques)

          G5

Paperback writer [RIFF]

VERSE

       G5

If you really like it you can have the rights

      (Frè        -           re)

         G5

It could make a million for you overnight

        (Jaaa          -        cques)

       G5

If you must return it you can send it here

      (Frè        -           re)

      G5                                        C

But I need a break and I want to be a paperback writer
