Music by elton johnLyrics by bernie taupinNever releasedI was born in the north of englandI was raised in a working townI broke all the rules when I went to schoolBut the teachers couldn’t pin me downI tried to make my parents proudBy adapting to the social powersOh pigs will fly, and the earth will fryWhen they get me doing honest hoursSnookeroo, snookerooDaddy’s going on the boozeMother used to cut my hairAnd sister used to make the newsOh it was two rooms up and two rooms downAnd we were sentenced by the wrecking craneI was born on the eve of halloweenAnd snookeroo, snookeroo, snookeroo’s my name, snookerooI need someone to cook for meAnd turn me loose at nightI could spend my life with a factory girl’cause the factory girl’s my typeI hear them gossip on the streetMost of what they say is trueOh don’t you know that I hear them sayThere goes that lazy, no-good snookeroo
