Hair
ORIGINAL CAST RECORDING 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 mother, Nada Simić, was the leading star of 'HAIR' in former Yugoslavia, current day Serbia, between 1969-73. She led the opening for each song - for 'Aquarius', they had her in a meditation pose, with flowers in her hair, pouring her heart and soul into each rhythm and beat.

We attended the 50th anniversary of the musical last year in May, here in Australia. Not only were we both brought to tears by the phenomenal performance, but I got to experience, for those 2 hours, what a glimpse of life was like half a century ago. I felt a spiritual presence take me over, as I was incredibly moved by the elements of my mother's life and how humanity, as a whole, lived and breathed in harmony throughout that period in history.

Greetings from my mother and I in Australia - she still sings to this day and she's almost 70 years old!

David Antonacci

All the best to you and your mother from Canada. I haven't heard this record for almost 50 years(I'm 60). It sounds just as good as it did in the 60's. Your perceptions about that period of history are not imaginary. "Hair", really captures the innocence, openness and idealism of those times. Unfortunately, the world has been going in the opposite direction for the last 50 years or so. We(humanity)need to rediscover the positive spirit(that you admiringly recognize) of those times, if we're going to survive at all. Peace.

Thank you for uploading this. I got this album for my 13th birthday, but lost track of it during a move 30+ years ago. Thanks, Hair for giving me a lifelong love of showtunes!

This was/is my favorite version of the musical.
Thank you for uploading this album.

Yes. Absolutely agree. There's also a Reader's Digest version though that I'm desperate to find - does anyone have any links - it's a bit different to this one.
