2008.01.31 A Writer's Life for Me!

A Writer's life for me!

Dedicated to "waiter"
With apologies to the spirit of Walt Disney

Hi-diddle-dee-dee
a Writer's life for me!
Elbow patches and ivy-league ties,
at cocktail parties while telling lies.

Hi-diddle-dee-day
A writer's life is gay!
You meet odd people every day,
a Writer's life for me!

Hi-diddle-dee-dum
a writer's life is fun.

Hi-diddle-dee-doh
deadlines come and go.
Between times life is filled with stress,
you write your worst but try your best.

Hi-diddle-dee-dum
a writer's life is fun.
Cigarettes, strong black coffee,
Exhibiting viricapnity,
write all night then sleep 'til three,
a Writer's life for me!

Hi-diddle-dee-dee
a Writer's life for me!
Elbow patches and ivy-league ties,
at cocktail parties while telling lies.

Hi-diddle-dee-duf
an advance is not enough.
I need a regular salary;
I wait tables from six to three;
I never have enough to eat;
a Writer's life for me!
