The Lyrics

I putt for gelt, it’s true.
What is just fine
For showing off to your golf crew
Is big drivin’,
For show you’re strivin’.

But then when you land it,
That white ball that’s round,
On the green, don’t bang it—
It is finesse, man, that must be found.

You putt for gelt and you
Win every time. . .
Most times.

Drive galoots
Don’t make loot
When they shoot
Power beauts—on the ground
The ball will then be.
Must put[t] it there:
In the vacancy
That’s deep and round—
Hole, i.e.!

I putt for gelt; they lose
Time after time.

On Hawkins your mind it doth dwell
A framework for stories you tell
Your tether to tune
Seems mystic'ly hewn
As if Jay has cast on you spell.
