The Lyrics

In a recent snooker tournament, they showed what might be the future of snooker: a table with purble baize, rather than the traditional green...
Purple baize has snookered me
Coloured balls getting hard to see
Playin' badly, spots before my eyes
**** Me! Went and missed the white

Purple baize may look kinda cool
Oh well, you say, it's OK for pool
Well I'm sorry if I cause a scene
But take it off and put back on the green
Want green
Want green
Oh, no, no

Purple baize before my eyes, uhh
Like my eyeballs being cauterized
Hallucinating, I'm beyond repair
Those colours real, or is it vomit there?
Not green
Ahh, yea-yeah, purple baize, yeah
Oh, no, oh
No, not green
Purple baize, tell me, baby, tell me
I can't play snooker on this
Purple baize
It's makin' me miss my shots, dammit
Purple baize, n-no, nooo
Purple baize, no, it's painful, baby

Thank you, Phil, for adding the word "baize" to my vocabulary. You crazy English walnut.
