Considering he mentions "Lear," as in possible reference to King Lear by Shakespeare whom is based on the legend of Leir of Britian and considering the identity of Shakespeare is obscured from history, I believe he could be implying that he is a ghostwriter. Possibly?
That though the Beatles were already famous, they could assume a different name and become famous respectively. Correct?

" Paperback Writer " is a 1966 song recorded and released by the English rock band the Beatles. Written by Paul McCartney and John Lennon  (credited to Lennon–McCartney ), the song was released as the A-side of their eleventh single. The single went to the number one spot in the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, West Germany, Australia, New Zealand and Norway. On the US Billboard Hot 100 , the song was at number one for two non-consecutive weeks, being interrupted by Frank Sinatra ''''''''''''''''s " Strangers in the Night ".
The song''''''''''''''''s lyrics are in the form of a letter from an aspiring author addressed to a publisher. The author badly needs a job and has written a paperback book based on a book by a "man named Lear".
"Paperback Writer" was one of the last new songs by The Beatles to be featured in concert, as it was included on their 1966 tour. A film was shot 20 May 1966 at Chiswick House in London to promote the single on BBC-TV''''s Top of the Pops. Michael Lindsay-Hogg directed it. The film was shown June 9, one day before the UK release of the single. The video was broadcast in the U.S. on The Ed Sullivan Show in the late spring.
The track was recorded between 13 April and 14 April 1966. The song, written in the form of a letter about an aspiring author to his publisher, was written three months after McCartney helped John Dunbar and others set up the bookshop for Indica Gallery.
