The Lyrics

Paid-off hack writer, writer. . . .

Deer-scourging mad dam gonna "write" a book
That will be cheered by right kooks who'll take a look.
They're wasting their money on some crap; it's clear
She'll have seen a "ghost", yeah, she's gotta seek
A paid-off hack writer, paid-off hack writer.

It's a worthless story from a worthless ma'am,
A hillbilly wife who pulled off a scam.
The sun don't shine up north from where she hails
She's a head-freeze job, so she's gotta seek
A paid-off hack writer, paid-off hack writer.

She got 7 million. . .have to give a few
Thousand to the ghost who has gotta do
The job: try to make readers like this vile
Smiling deranged mouth with the Fargo speak.
Seeks paid-off hack writer, paid-off hack writer.

Some will really like this literary blight;
They'll spend millions to buy then read this shite.
I hope you'll be spurning this dreck, give a jeer
To the seedy snake who's a fake and needs
A paid-off hack writer, paid-off hack writer.

Paid-off hack writer. . . .

JAB, I found this one a wee bit difficult sing over the the OS (orignal syllable, that's to say), but "Fargo speak" is a triple-5 winner all by itself. :-)

Well put. In regards to all badly written books, I wonder how they get published.

Captain Jack Barrow, "Duke 0'Tick" good point about the robotic authors who seem to write by the bushful, and get their output to line the shelves . . .

"Paid-Off Hack Writer". What a catchy title. You sure told the most incredible story, John Barry! I sure can't get enough of this song! I lost count on how many "Paperback Writer" parodies I responded to. Oh, well, I'll check later. 3 unanimous 5's with your name written all over them! Peace out!

Does this mean Sarah P's been given $7m for a book ghost-written for her? I'd missed that story, but there are plenty of other targets this could be aimed at.

Loved the Fargo-speak line!
