Hair
Gerome Ragni Lyrics


She asks me why, I'm just a hairy guy
I'm hairy noon and night, hair that's a fright
I'm hairy high and low, don't ask me why, 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
Here, baby, there, momma, everywhere, daddy, daddy
Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it, long as God can grow it, my hair

Let it fly in the breeze and get caught in the trees
Give a home to the fleas in my hair
A home for fleas, (yeah) a hive to bees, (yeah) 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 God 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
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?
Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it, long as God can grow it, my hair
Flow it, show it, long as God can grow it, my hair
Flow it, show it, long as God can grow it, my hair
Flow it, show it, long as God can grow it, my hair

my dad when I was a kid singing this song would ask me why I had my hair below my shoulders? I told him because when I get older I won't have any. he's long gone and the only hair on my head is on my face.

My mom took my brothers and I to this awesome musical when I was 14 at the Embassy Theater in Fort Wayne, Indiana...Protesters trying to get the musical closed down told my mom who was a social worker "You can't bring your kids in there!" She said "WATCH ME!!!" as she pushed them out of the way!!!...Incredible musical! She bought me the album for my birthday!!

Darcy Chatoian

Hair salons being opened on Monday in New Jersey.
I have the vinyl and the 8-track tape of this.

Eric Barash

I still have this on vinyl, and on an 8-track tape that was my parents.
I am 58 and this never gets old.
