The Lyrics

Ever since I was a young boy
I've played the dimpled ball
St. Andrews to Augusta
I’ve played rounds at them all

But I ain't seen nothing like him
On any course I’ve found
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean golf round

He stands with club in hand
Then swings like a machine
Hitting every fairway
Driving every green.

He plays by intuition
The scorecard counts his strokes
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Never gets mad or chokes.

He's a golf ball wizard
There's got to be a twist,
His swing so strong and natural,
From shoulder through to wrist.

How do you think he does it?
(I don't know)
What makes him so good?

He ain't got no distractions
He can't hear crowds or cars.
Never hits the bunkers,
Always birds or pars

Always makes the tour cut
Making sponsors drool
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Fearsome but always cool.

I thought I was
The PGA tour king
But I just handed
My green jacket to him

Even on my local course
He can beat my best
His caddie leads him ‘round
And he just does the rest

He drives for show and puts for dough,
Don’t slice or hook the ball
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure hits a mean golf ball.

Wonderfully rhymed and matches the spirit and pacing of the original. We need more parodies like this one. Given the state of the sport today, how does the blind fellow find his way around the ladies?

If you like this, may I invite you to check out my other entries ; I use both Rich Murphy and Richard Murphy. I submit only carefully crafted entries, so there are not that many.

Went back and checked out your previous entries. Not prolific, but perfectly crafted. Don't know when we'll see you again, but it's a good bet it will be good. Looks like I did catch "Cat's in the Cradle". If only we could all find someone who could sing or produce videos.

Thank you for the complement. And thank you for taking the effort to read them. Quality is more important than quantity Having one performed would be awsome. Have you submitted any [if so, what name].

Great work... pacing was PERFECT except around "PGA Tour King", where I got tongue-tied a bit. There is no 4.5 on the vote scale, so I'm rounding your score of 4.5 on your AmIRight scorecard to a 5 for a score of three perfect fives.
