El novelista - The Beatles - Reino Unido


Paperback writer

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.
Paperback writer.

Este blog, por definición, está dedicado a la poesía. Hay -y habrá- poetas de distintas  nacionalidades y épocas, pero ocurre que se nos ha colado algún que otro novelista que jamás escribió un poema, al menos que se sepa. ¿Qué tiene de malo  que le dediquemos una canción?

De malo... nada en absoluto. Y si es esta canción, mejor que mejor.
