Locked Into Green

This song is by Graham Parker & The Shot and appears on the album Steady Nerves (1985).

I find I fall into each night what passes for a dream
But all I see are pinks and blacks and I don't know what they mean
My opponent's got the edge but his face just can't be seen
And I'm locked into green

I been up since 8 oclock smoking endless cigarettes
And I'll be at the table as the bookies take their bets
A shot of drink to steady nerves and I'll wipe that table clean
And I'm locked into green

Reds and blues, yellows, greens and browns
If I keep my eye in I will put them down
There's other ways of life out there but there's nothing they could mean
Because I'm locked into green
Oh I'm locked into green
I'm locked into green, I'm locked into green
I'm locked into green


The subject of this song, William Wittmam informs us, is snooker.
