Sung by Billy Carter.

I've been out playing pool all day,
I'd nothing else to do.
And you'd split your sides a laughing
To see me pocket the cue.
And when I went to make a shot
My luck it ran so high,
I'd spill a heer, or tear the cloth,
Or kuock out some one's eye.

Pool, pool, pool,
I like to see them rolling,
Pool, pool, pool,
Now wasn't I a fool?
To carry a cue on my shoulder,
March round the table like a soldier,
Wear out my heels and miss my meals,
To play for check's at pool.

John Murphy got beat thirteen games,
Valjean he lost three;
When Sheldon collared the fifteen ball
And got dead wood on me.
Joe King play'd six pockets
Against Charley Jerome's four,
When Lewis catched the twelve and scratched
How the cues did thump the floor.-Chorus.

I swore off playing pool last night,
But to-day I grabbed a cue
When Miner said he'd let me play
Six pockets 'gainst his two.
He made pool 'fore I got a shot
And then he had the gall,
To ask me to play another game
When I hadn't shot at all.-Chorus.
