Hair
The Cowsills Lyrics


She asked him why,
Why I'm a hairy guy
I'm hairy noon and nighty night night,
My hair is a fright
I'm hairy high and low, don't ask me why,
'Cause he don't know
It's not for lack of bread, like the Grateful Dead

Darlin', give me a head with hair, long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming, steaming, flaxen, waxen
Give me down to there hair, shoulder length or longer hair
Here, baby, there, momma, everywhere, daddy, daddy
Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it, long as I can grow it, my hair

I let it fly in the breeze and get caught in the trees
Give a home for the fleas in my hair
A home for the fleas, a hive for the buzzing bees, a nest for birds
There ain't no words for the beauty, the splendor, the wonder of my
Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it, long as I can grow it, my hair

I want it long, straight, curly, fuzzy, snaggy, shaggy
Ratty, matty, oily, greasy, fleecy, shining, gleaming
Streaming, flaxen, waxen, knotted, polka dotted
Twisted, beaded, braided, powdered, flowered and confettied
Bangled, tangled, spangled and spaghettied

Oh say can you see my eyes
If you can, then my hair's too short


Down to here
Down to there

Down to there
Down to where it stops by itself
(No never have to cut it 'cause it stops by itself)

Oh give me a head with hair
Long, beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming,
Streaming, flaxen, waxen

Won't you give me down to there hair, shoulder length or longer hair
Here, baby, there, momma, everywhere, daddy, daddy
Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it, long as I can grow it, my hair
Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it, long as I can grow it, my hair
Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair

@Shayla Knight the network wanted them to tweak the lyrics to remove overtly religious references in the original, naming Jesus, Mother Mary, and God. Two verses were removed and a refrain altered :"They'll be ga ga at the go go
When they see me in my toga/
My toga made of blond/
Brilliantined/
Biblical hair/
My hair like Jesus wore it/
Hallelujah I adore it/
Hallelujah Mary loved her son/
Why don't my mother love me?/

[the altered refrain invokes "hair as long a God can grow it"]. The replacement lyrics are not explicitly naming religious figures but retain an allusion to them (note the gestured supplication to "mama" in the video)without risking public offense at blasphemy.

When you fall down a rabbit’s hole on YouTube, sometimes you end up finding a surreal masterpiece from another time!

Leo Jablonski

coolest comment on you tube Ive ever seen, and Ive seen a lot on YT

Speaking of "surreal masterpieces", there's this: Because when you think "psychedelic rock", the first name that comes to mind is Kenny Rogers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AULOC--qUOI&ab_channel=DianeJenningsDianeJenningsVerified

Close second in the "surreal" contest is Metallica covering a traditional Irish song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsrvmNtWU4E

As a bald man, I approve of this.

@Richard Francis I met a Greek( funny Treat Williams is this nationality) who had hair sequestered until one day I saw it down. And, it was frightening. Like bed head. Though not in a bad way, but something else. Bald means virile from what I read scientifically. And, maybe eyes more visible. Why is hair worn long in men one might ask?

@Richard Francis Well I would get a haircut, minus the chrome doom

Richard Francis

OK Exit, would ya really want hair like that? As a semi balder, I'm cool without!!
