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 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 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 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 it, you can send it here
But I need a break and I want to be a paperback writer

Bill,

On the 50th anniversary of the release of Revolver, I heard this played on a great station out of Austin, TX.  And I thought to myself, I don't remember ever hearing this on RP.  

Please put this into the rotation, even if just on 5th August every year!

Thanks 


We be dancing...  love it...



 


Everybody in my hotel room loves this song...

The first Beatles song (of many) I ever fell in love with, and it'll hold a special place in my heart for that reason!
Never Been played !! - This was the first Beatles single not to be a love song - from wikipedia (click here)
Paperback writer is my favorite Beatles song of all time!
