I can shoot pool
With the best of them
In fact I challenged God
And He gave me a nod.

"Rack 'em up." Said He
"Choose you game carefully
stakes are you life." He said
"If you lose,, you're dead!!",

So I knew I had to win
Even if it meant a little sin
I asked, who's gonna break
He said, "You, for goodness sake."

I broke and the balls scattered
But not one of them mattered
Then God took His turn
And I had lots to learn.

He cleaned the table, ball by ball
And every shot - a call
He won but He let me live
Praise Him - He does forgive...
