The Song of the Golfer’s Wife
[Tune: When I first put this uniform on; Patience – A Sullivan]
When he first put his golfing shoes on
I thought to myself with a smile,
It’s a phase, it’s a fad,
It won’t be so bad,
He’s sure to give up in a while.
That’s a fact that I’d counted upon
When he first put his golfing shoes on.
When he first put a golfing glove on
He did it with flair and panache
You could see his face glow
As he made quite a show
And he thought not a fig for the cash.
A fact I’d not counted upon
When he first put a golfing glove on.
When he first did a round in net par
You could see how it went to his head
He talked all the day
’bout the shots you should play,
And he practised his putting in bed.
And that’s NOT what I’d counted upon
Since he’d first put his golfing shoes on.
