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

What part was ridiculous? Signs was a quintessential existential song of the era. Kids being judged for their outward appearance, not being taken seriously. It was when people began to demand that people look deeper than the outward appearance to find who was really inside. It was all absolutely true.

"And the sign said "Long-haired freaky people need not apply"
So I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why
He said "You look like a fine upstanding young man, I think you'll do"
So I took off my hat, I said "Imagine that. Huh! Me workin' for you!" Whoa-oh-oh


Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?


And the sign said 'Anybody caught trespassin' would be shot on sight
So I jumped on the fence and I yelled at the house
'Hey! What gives you the right?
To put up a fence to keep me out or to keep mother nature in?
If God was here he'd tell you to your face, man, you're some kinda sinner!'


Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind…
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?


Now, hey you, mister, can't you read?
You've got to have a shirt and tie to get a seat
You can't even watch, no you can't eat
You ain't supposed to be here
The sign said you got to have a membership card to get inside Ugh!


And the sign said, 'Everybody welcome. Come in, kneel down and pray'

But when they passed around the plate at the end of it all
I didn't have a penny to pay
So I got me a pen and a paper and I made up my own little sign
I said, 'Thank you, Lord, for thinkin' 'bout me. I'm alive and doin' fine' Wooo!


Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?
Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Sign
Sign, sign

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

I was 16. I didn't watch it, (school night and all, you know), but I remember it. That was a truly glorious decade. There was a lot of upheaval, but it was a great time to be a young person in this country.
