The Lyrics

My drives are short, my putts are long
My aim, is always wrong
I swing the club, I miss the ball
I spin around and then I fall

I can't pitch, I can't chip
It's gotta be the way I grip
Or then again it just might be
My brand of shoes, my type of tee

You prob'ly think that I'm fed up with this stuff
Closer to the truth to say I can't get enough
You know I'm gonna have to face it I'm addicted to golf

One time I shot seventy-two
That time I quit after hole two
But if I see you hook or slice
I'll be right there to give advice

One time my shot went in the sand
So in that trap, I took my stand
And then and there, for all to see
A stray cat tried, to bury me!

You prob'ly think that I'm fed up with this stuff
Closer to the truth to say I can't get enough
You know I'm gonna have to face it I'm addicted to golf

Might as well face it I'm addicted to golf
Nothing I can do 'cause I'm addicted to golf
Gonna see it through 'cause I'm addicted to golf
Gonna grip and rip 'cause I'm addicted to golf
Gonna crank and shank 'cause I'm addicted to golf

I hit the ball, I yell out "fore"
A golfer falls, just like before
And what's so sad about this scene
It happens when I'm on the green!

You prob'ly think that I'm fed up with this stuff
Closer to the truth to say I can't get enough
You know I'm gonna have to face it I'm addicted to golf

Might as well face it I'm addicted to golf
I'm out there on the course 'cause I'm addicted to golf
I'm feelin' no remorse that I'm addicted to golf
Need the latest clubs 'cause I'm addicted to golf
I'm never in the pubs 'cause I'm addicted to golf
[fade]

Personally Rex, I think that golf is perhaps the most boring sport ever created by man. Your parody however made the subject funny, and so you receive 5,5,5 holes in one.

good parody

Actually Kim, bowling is the most boring sport ( Commentator 1: Well Jim, what do you think he's going to do this frame? Commentator 2: Well Bill, I imagine he's probably going to try a make a strike. ) Rex- Great parody, but you shot a 15 over par on this one. :)

There is a cure for addiction to golf: It's called baseball. You know, the national pastime?

Though I became a scratch golfer, we all started like this. Great job :-) 555

I struggle with the same addiction, Rex. Well done. I like your sand trap scenario.

Good one Rex, and just for the record you aren't that bad of a golfer.
