The Lyrics

Another Smoking Pen parody.
Number Two Pencil

Now they're writin' new stories with all evil guys
No happy endings, and everyone dies
But if you want to write yourself a nostalgic page
Jump right up and show your inner sage

Oh, get yourself a number two pencil
The Chattahoochee kind
A two toned, college-ruled, five-subject planner
And mechanical pencils would be just divine

I remember readin' fantastic stories
Heroes an' villains with very few worries
Oh, if I only had a number two pencil
Then I could write some mysteries too

Then it's Na-No ... Wri-Mo … jottin' so fast
Writin' with a pseudo i.d.
Yeah, spend all my extra spare time, thinkin' up a plot-line
But only 'stablished writers get interviewed in prime-time

Yeah, I wish I had a number two pencil
Then I could write some mysteries too

And it's a cramped-up, wound-up, writer's cramp feel
Lyin' on the livin room floor (so sore)
And writers' camps'll teach ya, how ta write yourself a featchya
But writin' down those words can be such a bore

Yeah, and now I'm grown old, and I don't really care
If I don't know my name, and I don't have my hair
And maybe now I know I'm not really all there
But that's the way that it has to be

That's why I wish I had a number two pencil
The Chattahoochee kind
A two toned, college-ruled, five-subject planner
And mechanical pencils would be just divine

Oh, I could make it be what I want it to be
Maybe erotic fiction or the old fantasy
If I only had a number two pencil
Then I could do some writin' too

Yeah, word-pad a little tab'll do ya
Oh, I could do some writin' too
