  • Snooker loopy, nuts are we, Me and him and them and me
    We'll show you what we can do With a load of balls and a snooker cue

    Pot the reds then, screw back, For the yellow, green, brown, blue, pink and black
    Snooker loopy, nuts are we, We're all snooker loopy

    Now old Meo, we all know's got loads of dapper suits
    London-bred and he keeps his head, though he's got Italian roots
    Emotional when he keeps his cool till he reaches the final
    But whether he wins he whether he don't:
    Tony Meo: I always pipe me eyeballs

    And our man Den, hours he's spent down the snooker hall
    On the old green baize, his mates seem amazed with his skills with a snooker ball
    But them long shots he never ever got, why, the old mind boggles
    But nowadays he pots the lot:
    Dennis Taylor: 'Cos I wear these goggles

    Snooker loopy, nuts are we, Me and him and them and me
    We'll show you what we can do With a load of balls and a snooker cue

    Pot the reds then, screw back, For the yellow, green, brown, blue, pink and black
    Snooker loopy, nuts are we, We're all snooker loopy

    Now Terry the Taff was born in a gaff in the valleys of the land of song
    And as the reds he puts to bed, he likes to sing along, "If I win," he says with a grin "it can only help me, can't it?"
    I'll celebrate and buy another eight:
    Terry Griffiths: Hairbrushes for me barnet"

    But old Willie Thorne, his hair's all gone, and his mates all take the rise
    His opponent said "Cover up his head, 'cos it's shining in my eyes,"

    When the light shines down on his bare crown, it's a cert he's gonna walk it
    But it's just fair giving off that glare:
    Willie Thorne: Perhaps I ought to chalk it

    Snooker loopy, nuts are we, Me and him and them and me
    We'll show you what we can do With a load of balls and a snooker cue

    Pot the reds then, screw back, For the yellow, green, brown, blue, pink and black
    Snooker loopy, nuts are we, We're all snooker loopy

    Steve last year come very near to winning the snooker crown
    But he never got to put it on his ginger nut 'cos the black ball wouldn't go down
    His manager and all said "S*d that ball" but it helped him make his mind up
    Now he don't care who wins next year:
    Steve Davis: 'Cos he's got the rest of us signed up

    Snooker loopy, nuts are we, Me and him and them and me
    We'll show you what we can do With a load of balls and a snooker cue

    Pot the reds then, screw back, For the yellow, green, brown, blue, pink and black
    Snooker loopy, nuts are we, We're all snooker loopy

    Snooker loopy, nuts are we, Me and him and them and me
    We'll show you what we can do With a load of balls and a snooker cue
    Pot the reds, then screw back, For the yellow, green, brown, blue, pink and black
    Snooker loopy, nuts are we, We're all snooker loopy
    Snooker loopy, nuts are we, We're all snooker loopy
    Snooker loopy, nuts are we… We're all snooker loopyWriter/s: Chas Hodges, Dave Peacock

  • Diana Lyons from LeedsThis may be historic - but how could the fact that you referred to Terry Griffiths, former World and UK champion as 'Tony' be let pass all these years? Sloppy Loopy perhaps!
