STRAIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE

(Sammy Cahn / Jimmy Van Heusen) Fore! Straight down the middle It went straight down the middle Then it started to hook just a wee wee bit That's when my caddie lost sight of it That little white pellet has never been found to this day But it went straight down the middle like they say Whack down the fairway It went smack down the fairway Then it started to slice just a smidge off line It headed for two then it bounced off nine My caddie says long as you're still in the state you're okay Yes it went straight down the middle quite a ways The sun was never brighter The greens were never greener And I was never keener to play I heared it came down the middle It went zing down the middle Oh the life of a golfer is not all gloom There's always the lies in the locker room And I'm in my glory when wrapped in a towel I say That it went straight down the middle today Oh the life of a golfer is not all gloom Though they should charge just for listening in the locker room But I'm in my glory when wrapped in a towel I say That it went straight down the middle Where it wound up is a riddle But it went straight down the middle far away
