Yeah it's the story with the happy ending
C'mon it's the plot with the patent pending
The boss pins the roots of the chords descending
The radio's on while the shower is running
Hey you gotta take it slow, write what you know
Gonna do it all in your own time
If it's getting late, we can take a break
We can take a walk in the sunshine
What I got so far, well it's a real potboiler
The Southern Belle and the wealthy Oiler
Kids from a previous wife to consider
Let's eat in, do they deliver?
Write what you know, write what you know
Well it all makes sense when you know why
Could be a proto-psychological cold war thriller
Moving off the shelves from Havana to Manila
"Unputdownable, a real page-turner!"
"Hotter than the flame from a Bunsen burner!"
Hey gotta take it slow, write what you know
