The Lyrics

All you golfers out there, we've all played at this kind of course or have had this kind of game. This is based on a true story, I wrote lines to this song as I was walking to my ball in-between hits. Those who dont understand golf may have trouble reading this, but it's pretty general.
'Twas a beautiful day outside
Decided to golf with my wife
The course had water hazards galore
And sand traps that would kill my score
The people were quiet, but flies were a-buzz
Tall grass all over the ground
The day was hot, no clouds in the sky
I had a terrible round

I played through the first holes and that course killed my game
At plus 12 I was going insane
At the start I usually play a good game
But at this place my score just went down the drain
La, la

I made every bad shot under the sun
My face began to turn red
I really was having no fun
And yet more water was ahead
But Lo and behold! My shots began to unfold
Made me think my ball was made of lead

Then I had played some thirteen holes and that course killed my game
My plus 20 score rang in my brain
In the middle I can play OK games
But at this place my score just went down the drain
La, la

Sixteen holes and my score still would increase
I just could not get on the green
The course had water hazards galore
And sand traps that would kill my score
This place is a hellhole with it's terrible ground
A course I quickly got sick of
I was so unhappy, my clubs got a pound
And I started to eat my glove

Thus I had played some eighteen holes and the course was to blame
I got plus 32! Pop some champagne!
Usually I play an even par game
But at this place my score just went down the drain
La, la

It works! You may have been yelling 'fore, fore, fore' all day but I say 'five, five, five'.

Great Job Wdh. Every golfer has had a slump or two. But I'd say 5,5,5 Chaulpas for you.

Nice job; particularly liked the "Pop some champagne" sarcasm.

Good parody. Been there, done that. And I commend you for apparently being a walker, not a cart rider.

I like the "Eat my glove"
Mari D - March 09, 2004 - Report this comment
I enjoyed this one even though I don't play golf. It's easy to picture the whole scenario by reading this... the red-faced guy, the water hazards and the lead balls!

High marks for Tournament. 455

wdh - This was a perfect Golfing parody! It was just like being out there on the course, I could FEEL the heat, the bad lies, the hazards, the anguish of having thought through a difficult shot, figuring out just what you need to do, confidently approaching the ball, and....then lifting up slightly as you are about to make contact and hitting a dismal, dying quail right where you DIDN't want it to go. This sounds like the type of course that where having a decent short game is not enough to keep your score from ballooning well over 100. 5-5-5

I think this is one of your best parodies! Great job!

Nice job. I particularly liked "pop some champagne" and the seamless incorporation of "my face began to turn red" from the original.

Congratulations on your round 1 bracket 2 win wdh. I wish you well in round 2. Great parody and thanks for playing with us. You deserve some recognition. Well done. ;-)

I tried to vote 5s on this one but I guess I did that back on Sep 27. I did however vote 5s on every parody in bracket 2 as they all deserved that, unless of course, as with this one I had already voted. I however did not comment on them all.
