Cut Your Hair
Pavement Lyrics


(Stop it)

(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)
(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)

Darlin' don't you go and cut your hair
Do you think it's gonna make him change?
"I'm just a boy with a new haircut"
And that's a pretty nice haircut
Charts are like a puzzle
Hitmen wearin' muzzles
Hesitate, you die
Look around, around
The second drummer drowned
His telephone is found

(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)
(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)

Music scene is crazy
Bands start up each and every day
I saw another one just the other day
A special new band
I don't remember lying
I don't remember a line
I don't remember a word

But I don't care
I care
I really don't care
Did you see the drummer's hair?

(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)
(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)

"Advertising looks and chops a must
No big hair!"
Songs mean a lot
When songs are bought
And so are you
Face right down to the practice room
Attention and fame's a career
Career, career, career, career, career

(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)
(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)

[Verse 1]
Darling don't you go and cut your hair
Do you think it's gonna make him change?
"I'm just a boy with a new haircut"
And that's a pretty nice haircut
Charge it like a puzzle
Hitmen wearing muzzles
Hesitate you die, look around, around
The second drummer drowned
His telephone is found

[Verse 2]
Music scene's crazy
Bands start up each and every day
I saw another one just the other day
A special new band
I remember lying
I don't remember a line
I don't remember a word

[Chorus]
But I don't care
I care
I really don't care
Did you see the drummer's hair?

[Verse 3]
Advertising looks and chops a must
No big hair!
Songs mean a lot
When songs are bought
And so are you
Bitch, right down to the practice room
Attention and fame's a career

Saw them one summer at Pittsburgh's Lollapalooza in the late 90's. I think they were on the smaller, second stage, but I can't remember. It was sunny and hot- like sunburn hot. Relaxed atmosphere. Blankets in the field; people resting everywhere in small, nebulous groups. Nobody minded if you walked right up. This was before cellphones, so people would say, "how's it going, man?" and then offer you a... something or other. Everything picked up speed and energy as the day turned to evening, but that day seemed to take forever.

The girls were slender and young. They wore Earth-toned day dresses, but often jeans with medium bells on the bottom. Their jewelry was also Earthy, and it tended to be visually interesting but inexpensive. Their styles were not at all as exaggerated as those 90's clichés will suggest, but it could be tacky and over-the-top at times; nevertheless, to my young male mind, they were as beautiful as they were intriguing. 

Lots of hacky-sack in the crowds: some of the circles would contain more than 50 people, all calmly playing in the field. Professionals would quickly show their skills, and then pass to give someone else a chance. Oversized hippie hats everywhere, just like the 4 Non Blondes girl wore. Nag Champa, Coppertone, and pot smells hung in the air. Big, baggy green corduroy pants, tie-dyed Grateful Dead shirts, and that popular mushroom/sun album cover from Sublime could be seen everywhere. The booths were stocked with hemp jewelry, Devil Sticks, polymer clay caned crafts, nickel bowl pipes, Kokopelli flute player knick-knacks, and sand-filled satin lizards. People were friendly, but strange. Never felt awkward, though.

If you're still young, enjoy the weirdness of it all! Just be careful.

Saw Tool on the second stage at Molson Park in Barrie Ontario Canada outside Toronto in 1993. Met my highschool girlfriend there. We were 16. Both from the same city in NY. Did the whole 4 year first love thing.

@pocket83² seems a bit “neBUlOus” if you asked me

Joe Nword You ain't black Biden

@pocket83² nobody asked what Generation you are from

@Joe Nword You ain't black Biden Here's your reaction, Millennial: go back to whichever meme-generating kiddie klatch you just came from. You are in no position to critique my usage.

And for the record, I'm Gen X.

@david page Yeah, I biffed on that. I was referring to pop station playlists, and I trashed every song recorded in a 10-year span right along with them. That was ridiculous. You're absolutely right, there were some GREAT indie and alternative releases. Good thing there's no statute of limitations on calling out for being stupid. Thanks for calling me out on that, I deserved it. !

@uNkn0wn Good call. My mistake. There were a number of '80's indie bands I liked, cd's I bought, concerts I went to. I'm thinking ATF and blanketing the decade. Thanks for calling me on that.
