I’ve Got a Driver

It's been a while since I did a song parody... and ironically, I didn't do this one for this blog. Occasionally my love of golf finds its way onto my Will Shakespeare for Hire blog, and I posted this parody there on Monday. But I liked it so much -- I've found myself singing it around the house -- that I decided to post it here as well.

I considered calling it Drive It Far since it's a parody of the Beatles' song Drive My Car, but I've Got a Driver is a line from the original song and just seems to fit the mood of the song better.

I hope you guys like it. Since we're in the lull between golf seasons, it seemed like a good time to have a little fun.

I’ve Got a Driver (with apologies to the Beatles)
My caddie said, “You should listen to me:
I’ve done this job for a decade or three.
The fairway’s narrow and there’s too many trees;
I know what you’re thinking, but won’t you please
Leave that big stick in the bag –
Yeah, I know my plan’s a drag –
But leave that big stick in the bag,
You’ll hit the ball better.”

I ought to listen; my friends say he’s good.
If he says “Hit an iron,” I know that I should.
There’s water short of the green if I dare…
But I’ve got a driver. I could get it there!
He says, “Leave that big stick in the bag –
Yeah, I know my plan’s a drag –
But leave that big stick in the bag,
You’ll hit the ball better.”

I disregarded my caddie’s advice,
Took out the driver and I hit a big slice.
My ball’s in the water, my score’s in the tank…
And I’ve got a driver and myself to thank.
Took that big stick from the bag –
Didn’t want to be a drag –
Took that big stick from the bag
And hit the ball badder…
Uh-oh, splish-splash, no
Uh-oh, splish-splash, no
Uh-oh, splish-splash, no
