The Lyrics

Reposting this because of the original artist bug that happened last time.
We all were hangin' at the golf course
My score was crap though I was playin' with force
It was annoying me, my mediocrity
These games are no fun, 'cause I keep losin' every one

When golf's on TV, it makes me drowsy
But that ain't nothin' compared to when they make me
Join in their group game, I really hate it
I rent some golf clubs, but I don't see the point in it

Now I'm a misery, an awful sight now
My friends mock me, and they're laughin' at my plight now
Wish I knew how to play it their way
But I can't seem to keep up, I can barely find the fairway

If there's water, my golf balls get wetter
You think it's easy, I'd like to see you do better
I won't quit, but the worst is ahead of me
'Cause every time I play, the hardest part is the puttin'

I'm on the green now, I'm doin' alright
I'm almost done, but this still takes a fortnight
And there's a small hole with nothing in it
Because I never can seem to get my golf ball in it

The hardest part is the puttin'
The hardest part is the puttin'
The hardest part is the puttin'
The hardest part is the puttin', oh-oh

The hardest part is the puttin'
The hardest part is the puttin', oh-oh
The hardest part is the puttin'

The hardest part is the puttin'
The hardest part is the puttin'
The hardest part is the puttin'
The hardest part is the puttin', oh-oh

This is truly awful....and humour at all

This is what is really starting to annoy me - people criticising a parody simply because they're a fan of the original artist. And I know I'm not the only person who's had this problem. If only these people could get their heads around the idea that ninety-nine times out of a hundred, it's not about the parody writer ridiculing or making fun of the original artist. For what it's worth, I'm also a White Stripes fan, and I wouldn't have been able to write this parody if I didn't own a copy of the song on CD. Same goes for almost every other parody I've written here, and I'm sure a lot of writers here could say the same. (Not wanting to rant on about this, but it really does bother me. I like that people are encouraged to vote and comment, but some of them need to be encouraged to think as well.)

Aussie - DKTOS, but it looks interesting. Yeah, the "original artist" fans don't get it. When a creative person gets an idea, they have to run with it. I parody songs that I love AND hate,and the same goes for the artists that do those songs -- because they fit what the subject matter that I want to write about. Most likely these particular fans are not creative people...

I think this rocks and i got here thro the white stripes website, you really worked the original into something very clever and witty

I just found this looking through all the White Stripes spoofs, and I think you did a superb job. I LOVE the title switch and there were a lot of funny lines in this. Great job!
