The Lyrics

Bandolina, bandolina, of you there’s two.
One is what you put on hair to give it style.
It is pomade, it is dome aid, and it is goo.
It slicks back your tresses if left on a while.

(Blond-types love it if pelophiles)

But don’t put into your mane this bandolina—
it will do more than a comb to give a part.
Your bean will be feeling like a doorstep
with feet plied there, thus astride hair.
For cosmetics, use just Bandolina,
or a concussion to your noggin you’ll impart.

For that bandolina, head will smart.

For your hair there is the pomade Bandolina—
but if you’re practitioner of music arts,
use a bandolina for whole, half steps—
play a nice air. . .a waltz, thrice fare.
But for nice hair, you use Bandolina.
One is for music; one’s for giving hair a part.

1.Bandolina, 2. bandolina [type of mandolin]
