The Lyrics

Golf people ain't as awful
Golf people ain't as awful
Golf people ain't as bad
As I thought

They got steady hands
and focused eyes
Just trying to get
Some R & R time
They ain't out
Getting into trouble
Chasin little white balls
Through the stubble
WelI I'll tolerate some golf people
Tolerate some golf people
Tolerate some golf people
Round here

Golf people are quite the same
As you and I
(Fools as we are)
Take out aggressions
On something safe like a ball
(Better than kickin' the cat)

Golf people got lotsa scen'ry
Golf people got lotsa scenry'
Golf people got lotsa scen'ry
To love

They got pools of water
And tall, tall trees
Sand traps and moats and greenery
They got little carts
Environmentally friendly
Bag of irons
Long and spindly
They occupy their fingers
As well as their minds
Tryin to make it through
Their dirty little grinds
Well I'll tolerate some golf people
Tolerate some golf people
Tolerate some golf people
Round here

Royce - you didn't need to redeem yourself for your first golf parody which poked fun at golfers in a humorous way, but you did it anyway. Well done. Will there be a Golf People III?

I've been waiting for this, since I like to golf, I found the original very insulting! Haha, just kidding, they're both great... good job.
