Jimmy White met Thin Lizzy

Steve Davis thinks
he only won the World Snooker Championship
because he wasn’t attractive,
he had nothing to do but practice.
He’s sitting on my television,
a skin tight black T-shirt and beige jacket.
When Jimmy White crashed a speed boat
Stephen Hendry admitted he couldn’t swim
so Barry Hearn dragged him to shore.
Jimmy White never won
the World Snooker Championship,
he got his teeth sorted, got new suits,
and did his best to ignore his head.
