The Writer
by UFO

  • I'm the writer got a front page cover
    Hot gossip 'bout who's with their latest lover
    I write all chapters by the second scene
    I call the shots, don't need a Fleet Street team
    I am a writer and I'm the news
    You cross me you know you're gonna lose
    I'll do the story if you're dead or alive
    If seconds out or if you're gonna take a dive
    Slip out the news or a piece of scandal
    Don't toe the line, 'cause nothing's too hot to handle
    I am the writer and I'm the news
    If you cross me you know you're gonna lose
    Yeah you're gonna lose

    I am a writer and I am the news
    If you cross me you know you're gonna lose
    And where you are it's because of me
    'Cause overnight you know it don't come free
    I'll put you up there or I'll bring you down
    'Cause nothing moves without me in this town
    I am a writer and I am the news
    If you cross me you know you're gonna lose
    Boy you're gonna lose I said you're gonna lose
    I write the news I am the news
    Got to, got to lose
    Oh yeah you're gonna lose
    So don't step on my blue suede shoes... Writer/s: NEIL CARTER, PAUL CHAPMAN, PHIL MOGG
