First Line: Too long I've been dubbing away at the game
Last Line: I'm taking up golf in a serious way!
Subject(s): Golf; Sports


Too long I've been dubbing away at the game
Without any Serious Purpose in View,
My putting's been doubtful, my driving's been lame,
I slice and I hook and I don't follow through.
But now I shall do as a golfer should do
And study the very best methods of play.
I'll hire a professional's services, too;
I'm taking up golf in a Serious Way!

My business has had far too much of a claim
On time I have needed for Golf, it is true;
So I have quit working for wealth or for fame,
And Golf is the trade I shall henceforth pursue.
I've bought fifty clubs that are perfectly new,
They cost me a fortune, but golfers must pay,
I'm thinking, at that, my supply is too few;
I'm taking up golf in a Serious Way!

I've hired me a trainer to build up my frame,
I read all the golf books, and there are a slew;
From dawn until dark every day is the same,
I practice in hope that some skill may accrue;
The day my wife left me my game went askew
And most of my shots in the rough went astray,
But though for a while I was terribly blue,
I'm taking up golf in a Serious Way!

ENVOY

You say that the world's in a hullabaloo?
With Great Events happening, day after day?
I haven't the time to discuss it with you,
I'm taking up golf in a Serious Way!
