So You Wanna Be a Star Wars Writer

To the tune of "So You Wanna Be A Rock 'N' Roll Star" by the The Byrds
Filked for the Dead Daalas by Kelly Frieders

So you wanna be a Star Wars writer
Then listen now, you'll have some fun
Just get a tape recorder
And take some time to recall English 101
And if you use a Sith Lord, Exar
Or a rehashed Death Star
It's gonna get you far
Then it's time to go downtown
Where Betsy Mitchell won't let you down
Sell your soul to Bantam Books
They're waiting there
To plug your mediocre fare
And in a week or two
If you make the charts
The pre-teens will tear you apart

(screaming YJK groupies)

Once you've paid for your riches and fame
Would you notice when you change, you're a little inane
Money that came and the public acclaim
Don't worry if your writing lacks,
It's just like flippin' Big Macs...
La la la la la la la ....
