[Verse 1]
I had this little strand of hair
it got in my face sometimes.
I had this little strand of hair
and so I chopped it off.

[Verse 2]
I chopped that strand of hair away
I chopped it off my head.
And what, quite then, did happen friend
when I saw my head next?

[Bridge A]
It grew! Another!
Fine strand of hair!
So I went right in and chopped it off,
another strand of hair.

But it grew! My hair!
Like some five-headed hydra!
It grew! My hair!
So I’m stuck with lots of hair.

[Verse 3]
I thought I might want to
remove all of my hair.
I went away to the barber shop
to have them chop it there.

But it grew! My hair!
I could hardly make it through the door.
It grew! My hair!
I could barely make it through.

[Verse 4]
Once I was in that shop,
they thought they’d chop it off.
They were going to use a buzzer
and buzz it right, right off.

And they buzzed, they buzzed
for hours and hours.
They buzzed, they buzzed
until I had no hair.

[Bridge B]
And I stood up and
looked around the place
examining the sight.
My hair had spread all
through their eyes
and it got deep inside,
But it wasn’t on me anymore!
I could, yes, go outside!
So, I left that barber shop
and I ran, yes, far outside.

For it grew! My hair!
Devouring that whole building!
It grew! My hair!
And we had to burn it down.
