The Lyrics

#37. People with 'fros are extremely cool. Just beware of letting it get too big.
Should I lose my 'fro
Do you think I've gone too far
Cuz it's getting so big
I can't fit inside my car
But my comb sticks over inside it
When I'm walking to and fro
Should I lose my 'fro

Is that my 'fro?
Bout 24 inches is how wide I let it grow
How bout the time when I got myself stuck in the door
Just check this 'fro, I don't know I want it anymore
You feel the same?

Yes, that's my 'fro
Bout 24 inches is how wide I let it grow
How bout the time when I got my cat stuck in my hair
It's just a 'fro, I don't know I want it anywhere
Am I insane?

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Crazy kid
'Fro so big you would think an airplane ride could spot it
And it's funny cuz satellite pics got it
So much shampoo on my hands and I ain't even washed it out yet
When it gets cold, sorta blows into my face
And a 'fro wide 24 inches takes up space
When it's dripping wet, yeah lookin' like a shrimp
So when I like get it dry
It starts poofin' in the sun

My 'fro's strange
And I want a change change
Go short, go bald
Like a scalping, no pain
It's scary to think
It might make me drown
Hair's so heavy I couldn't get up when I fell down

Should I lose my 'fro
Do you think it should retire
I'm afraid what I'd be
If it were to catch on fire
I can't make it over the doorway
And some birds are nesting high
Should I lose my 'fro

Should I lose my 'fro
Do you think I should keep some
Cuz it makes such a mess
When I try to chew some gum
Got it stuck right over the forehead
Called a firetruck to come
Should I lose my 'fro

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
It's so spicy
My hair's so heavy that I get a headache
Stop it, no, no, no, I need to shave, kid
When I crane my neck, I fall down
It's crazy

It's nothing
Afros are nothing to me
Especially when I'm suiting up
It just makes trouble for me
Sting! And not to mention my grief
When I tried to put a hat
I found I couldn't reach
Oh no, drats!

And check out my span
Feel it big, long, and true, I'm an American man
Boy it's incredible
But I can't tell if it's clean
My money spent on hair gel
The price is getting obscene

My music gives me a cry
Cuz of the headphones
The biggest ones, I bought it
It don't stretch to my earlobes
I say this cuz sometimes you call me, saying
Yeah, you want to grow one too
Huge ones are paying

Is that my 'fro?
Bout 24 inches is how wide I let it grow
How bout the time when I did a flip, just tried to bow
Just check this 'fro, I don't know I want it anyhow
You feel the same?

Is that my 'fro?
Bout 24 inches is how wide I let it grow
How bout the time when I got my shirt stuck in all day
Just check this 'fro, I don't know I want it anyway
Am I insane?

Should I lose my 'fro
Should I try to stick it through
Cuz it took me so long
And the ladies like it too
But I can't go over to movies
Cuz it blocks somebody's view
Should I lose my 'fro

Should I lose my 'fro
Is it big enough to be
Of the 'fros in the world
Largest one in history
If I cut it over a foot off
Will you just make fun of me
Should I lose my 'fro

I think its a hoot (hirs-hoot, that is)! Funny lines and though I'm not all that familiar with the song, I have heard the chorus and got the feel for the rest by listening to the free 20 seconds or so that the iTunes store will let you sample for free. The pacing seems fine.
