One hundred and eighty's a wonderful
To score it is well worth buying a round.
Especially for those like me and old Claud,
Who think we've done well to get three in the board.
We step up to the line with our
darts in our fist,
we take careful aim, but somehow we've missed.
The spot that we aimed at, that's always the trouble,
we get them all on, but we can't get the double.
And we get off, with a fluke
Old cloud takes the chalk to work out the score,
The way he does that is the funniest part,
At the end we need more than we did at the start.
But we play every week at the
old "Holly Tree"
Sometimes he wins and sometimes it's me,
And we drink up our pints and it's all very matey,
As we dream of that score of one-hundred-and-eighty.
