New Pulp Writer


By Jim Beard (based on "Paperback Writer" by the Beatles)

With sincere apologies... ;)

New Pulp writer, New Pulp writer…

Dear Ron or Tom, will you read my pulp,
It took me hours to write, all in one big gulp,
It's based on a novel by a man named Dent,
And I need a job, so I want to be a New Pulp back writer,

New Pulp writer!

It's a dirty story with some dirty fights,
And a man slinking `round in the dead of night.
His girl remains clueless without fail,
It's a cliché, I know,
But I want to be a New Pulp writer,

New Pulp writer!

It's 60,000 words, give or take a few,
I'll be writing more in a hour or two,
I can make it rougher if you like the style,
I can change the genre,
And I want to be a New Pulp writer,

New Pulp writer!

Even if you like it, I want to keep the rights,
It could make a few bucks for us overnight,
If you must return it you can send it here,
But I need a break,
And I want to be a New Pulp writer,

New Pulp writer!
