I Want To Be a Paperback Writer - A Re-interpretation

Many people aspire to live the life of an author: To be able to linger among those great men and women of letters and laugh at erudite jokes, to drink wine with unpronounceable names, to dream the impossible dream, and then get paid for it. Whatever reality is missing from this imagined life of intellectual bliss is made up for in persistence. Good writers sweat more than they dream, and they dream often.

Paul McCartney understood this desire and put it to words and music. I'm unable, for various laws involving copyrights, to publish those lyrics. Instead, I am adjusting the words with books and other products. Some of the connections are cloudy, you'll find them all "if you take a look." :)

You can find the song below on the album, 'The Beatles 1', which is a collection of their number one hits.
