We’ve Been Editing Our New Book

Sung to the tune “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad”

 

We’ve been editing our new book

all the livelong day!

We’ve been editing our new book,

and the time has slipped away.

We can see the deadline looming

so we rise up early in the morn.

We can hear each other shouting

“Damn it, cut some more!”

 

Damn it, cut some more!

Damn it, cut some more!

Damn it, cut some more and more, more, more!

Damn it, cut some more!

Damn it, cut some more!

Damn it, cut some more, more, more!

 

Someone has to check for grammar.

Someone has to check for form.

Someone has to check for style.

While rewriting it some more!

 

We’re singin’ “Gee, why did I write this?

Gee, this piece has to go-o-o-o-o.

Gee, why is editing so damn hard?

Wish we were strummin’ on the old banjo!”
