Paperback writer, 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 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,
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 could 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.
Paperback writer, paperback writer.
Paperback writer, paperback writer.
Paperback writer, paperback writer.
Paperback writer, paperback writer.
Paperback writer...

There are tabs that have you tune the guitar down a half step and the riff is played starting on the second fret.That is wrong.That way it would be in the wrong key There is no need to tune down your guitar and I have seen the promotional film that the Beatles have of this song and that is not how it is played.It pissed me off for quite a while to because the song is not that difficult to play and for a while all I had seen was the way I just described it.Not just on the internet but actual sheet music that said to play it in the key of G#.That's just wrong.This tab here is correct.The song is in the key of G.I hate when people try to complicate a relatively easy song.Tune the guitar down? Are you kidding me ?
