Sung to the Tune “Message in a Bottle” by the Police.

Just a castaway

An article lost at sea

Another lonely day

With no one here but me

More footnoting

Than any one could bear

Rescue me before I fall into despair

 

I’ll send an article out to the world

I’ll send an article out to the world

I hope that someone accepts my

I hope that someone accepts my

I hope that someone accepts my

A year has passed since I wrote my article

But I should have known this right from the start

Only hope can keep me together

Editors can mend your life

But they can break your heart

 

I’ll send my article out to the world

I’ll send my article out to the world

I hope that an editor totally gets my

I hope that an editor gets my

I hope that an editor gets my

Woke up this morning

Don’t believe what I saw

A hundred billion rejections

Washed up on the shore

Seems my article was left alone

Now my article is a castaway

Looking for a home

 

I’ll send my article out in August

I’ll send my article out in August

I hope that someone else gets my

I hope that someone else gets my

I hope that someone else gets my
