The President’s Golf Day 2008
On President’s day at Delvin, the sun shone warm and bright,Our President Paddy Roddy, is a man who gets things right.He welcomed all the players, as they walked onto the tee,And wished them all the very best, in their search for victory.
The reigning champion he was there, staying cool and very quiet,But we knew he’d not surrender it, at least without a fight.And when the play got under way, it was not long before,You’d hear that old familiar sound off people shouting four.
But now the pressure was mounting, as the trees get in the way,And we are all asking Paddy, do you know the state of play.Well Paddy he was tight Lipped, then he’d say you were doing all right,And I’ll tell you who the winner is in the corner bar that night.
Well that’s where we assemble, around half past nine or ten,And then without our golf club, we’d play the course again.Only now we’d play it perfect, with not even one mistake,So there’s where the problem lies, it’s the clubs for goodness sake.
Well that’s the way it is with golf, it’s so easy looking back,But Sexton showed us how it’s done, by winning back to back.So well done Seamus Sexton, from each and everyone,We now boast two champions, in you and Harrington
But later on that week, when I read the local press,A nice report about the day, but not the way I dressed.It said I wore the same shirt, as I did the year before,Well one was bought in Kingscourt and the other in Singapore.
So I’am pleading with the Judges, have a look at what you done,Then give me back my title, and admit you got it wrong.
