The Lyrics

I can't help feeling that this is how the recent Catwoman film was pitched to D.C. Comics...
A little artistic licence, I'm gonna rework a bit
Your story doesn't fit my beat, so I'm just rewriting it
A little cut here and a little chop there
The author's goin' mad, he thinks it's unfair
Soon there won't be nothin' left when I've made some little edits
Nothin' left baby

Gonna write a draft and listen to the feedback
Coming from a focus group
It's not sounding right and I can show you how to fix it
Gotta make a change or the project falls through

A little artistic licence, I'm gonna rework a bit
Your story doesn't fit my beat, so I'm just rewriting it
A little switch here and a little swap there
Losin' half the plot, I really don't care
Soon there won't be nothin' left when I've made some little edits
Nothin' left baby

Gotta stop the audience snoring
Change your plot and make it less boring
Rejig, rejig (rejig, rejig)
Rejig, rejig (rejig, rejig)
Rejig, rejig (rejig, rejig)
Re-articulate, re-imagine it
Soon we'll have a hit, I've been switchin' it all around

A little artistic licence, I'm gonna rework a bit
Your story doesn't fit my beat, so I'm just rewriting it
A little change here, adjust a bit there
Gotta give the end a little more flair
Now your story's disappeared 'cause I've made my little edits
Disappeared, baby
