Query

So, I am a HUGE Maroon 5 fan.

And I am in love with their latest song Misery.

It's really catchy, and the video is funny. Poor Adam!

But anyways, I started thinking about querying and writing and agents and I thought "Hey let me write this song from a writer's perspective." So that is exactly what I did.

This is song is nowhere near perfect, and I haven't queried a day in my life, so basically the song is just for fun, so enjoy.

Oh and here's the original lyrics for Misery.


Verse 1

Oh yeah
Oh yeah
So scared of messing up
Making mistakes that I can't mend
And I wrote two hundred drafts
That I know I won't ever send
It's bad enough that it sucks
Worse than the WIP
I'd rather curl up
Then write this damn query
So let me be
Let me trunk this story

Chorus

I can't write this query
Isn't there anybody
Who can write it for me
Oh yeah!
Why won't the agents answer me?
There silence is slowly killing me
This book really got me mad
It really got me mad
Is it really that bad
Is it really that bad

Verse 2

Your painful rejection, and how
it makes me want to whine
The way it feels so much
like a sign
Not that I don't care about it
It's just, I really don't know
It's not what I'm querying,
It's what I didn't show
So let me be
Let me trunk this story

Chorus

I can't write this query
Isn't there anybody
Who can write it for me
Oh yeah!
Why won't the agents answer me?
There silence is slowly killing me
This book really got me mad
It really got me mad
Is it really that bad
Is it really that bad

Verse 3

You say the story is not for you
Dear agent, how you make me blue
You keep me wide awake and
Waiting for inspiration
I'm fighting a war I'm gonna lose
So far away from finishing
That I'm getting closer
to trunking

Why can't I write this damn query, yeah
Why won't you represent me, represent me, yeah
Why can't I write this damn query, yeah
Why won't you represent me, represent me, yeah

Chorus

I can't write this query
Isn't there anybody
Who can write it for me
Oh yeah!
Why won't the agents answer me?
There silence is slowly killing me
This book really got me mad
It really got me mad
Is it really that bad
Is it really that bad
