The Lyrics

I'm Slate, I'm Slate
I am slick, and I'm smooth and straight
A bedding on good pool tables,
I'm Slate, I'm Slate, I'm Slate
I am a rock,
And I can take a knock
A ball, I may be having now,
In some house on your block

Often, on me, balls hop, hop, hop
At times, they even fly
Such clumsy billiards is a flop,
And here's the reason why,
No chalk, they use,
Or else drink too much booze
Then don't respect my nice green dress
I'm Slate, I'm Slate, I'm Slate..

My life is spent in someone's den
You think it doesn't matter,
'Cause my skin's at least two inches thick,
And it takes a lot to shatter..
But, my control can scatter
Those abusive Joes' could find that their toes
Are flatter

I strive to please good player's hearts
Not just be cold and callous
Sometimes I'll sink a bad player's shot
And make opponents jealous
I really mean no malice
Just my cowboy way, cuz' I live here in Dallas,
I'm Slate, I'm Slate, I'm Slate..

I'm Slate..

Nice write Sir L'Air de Farce, but I prefer floors o'wood, Sir. As it prevents major trip to the hospital & a Major Payment, if someone takes a spill !
