The Lyrics

clubs, i keep grippin', grippin', grippin'
golf is my future
clubs, i keep grippin', grippin', grippin'
golf is my future

i want to try for an eagle
will it be ?
try for an eagle
i must reach the hole in three
i want to try for an eagle
will it be ?
oh no !...circumlocution !

play my buddy
i don't have the score to beat
he's still winnin'
i'll go down to defeat
how he'll needle
make my hell complete
oh no..what persecution

clubs, i keep grippin', grippin', grippin'
golf is my future
clubs, i keep grippin', grippin', grippin'
golf is my future

I've only played mini-golf, but I know what you mean by eagle here. 555 golf balls for you.

The closest that I ever came to an eagle was one occasion during which I was playing golf in Nova Scotia (yes, it is true despite being improbable) years ago, and I was on a par-5, during which my shot from 100 meters (about 110 yards) blew back in my face when gale-force winds started to act up. I am never playing golf in Canada (or anywhere else, for that matter) in inclement weather again. Except perhaps Scotland. Great parody, by the way.
