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 a 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

It's a thousand pages, give or take a few (Frère)
I'll be writing more in a week or two (Jacques)
I can make it longer if you like the style (Frère)
I can change it 'round and I want to be a paperback writer (Jacques)
Paperback writer

If you really like it you can have the rights (Frère)
It can make a million for you overnight (Jacques)
If you must return it you can send it here (Frère)
But I need a break and I want to be a paperback writer (Jacques)
