The Lyrics

It was my book and the movie's a huge bore
Movie's a huge bore, movie's a huge bore
You'd get mad too, if that book had been yours

The critics agreed that my novel was great
I gained a whole legion of fans
Someone thought it should be a film
I said, "Do the best that you can!"

It was my book and I'll get mad if I want to
Get mad if I want to, get mad if I want to
I got mad fast, 'cause the movie was crass

Well, the acting was bad and the writing was weak
They got the entire plot wrong
They dared to add some perverted lines
And they threw in a superfluous song

It was my book and they just did what they wanted
Did what they wanted, did what they wanted
That character should not have been dead!

It's been a year since that disaster came out
My life has not been the same
That book of mine no longer sells
Guess what I have to blame?

It was my book and now nobody likes it
Nobody likes it, nobody likes it
They like the film, even though it's the pits

Oh, oh, oh

It was my book and now everything's ruined
Everything's ruined, everything's ruined
Watching that film should be considered sin
