The Lyrics

A grey hair. The first sign that you are becoming Oldy McOldington. Even those who point out that grey hair is just white mixed with black will not dissuade the panic.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

I check the mirror for too long again
Just wanna know if it still looks the same
Call me pathetic, won't be denyin' it
'Cause I'm not likin' this unwanted change (ooh, ooh, ooh)
Must remove them though it hurts like hell
They're a sign that I am old
May seem too vain, wear that label well
'Cause it's true, time took its toll

Now there's grey on me (uh)
That's a pain for me (uh)
Try consolin' me (uh)
"You're not alone, you see?" (uh)
That's not a lie from you (uh)
Can't get too pissed at you (uh)
Still, I'll ditch a brush at you, hey

Each white hair hurts to remove it and as well
The big scars left on my psyche, they hurt like hell
Hair dye stains my skin for days, hate evidence
That I have grey hair fears, plus I hate their scents
No confidence swell enough to turn my hair green
Bright orange, yellow or purple, not in the punk or rave scene
Could shave, straight up be bald, but I say
Cold breeze on bare skin? Goddamn, no way
What's worse for me, though (me, though)
White hairs on me blow more than most others, shines like a beam glow
Grey on black looks fine, blonde's no real joke (real joke)
On red, it doesn't seem all that bad, maybe that's just me though
I'm a brunette, brown hair looks stupid with white streaks through it, shit
Sure, there's Rogue of the X-Men, that's one mutant
Kinda hard to see that look workin' for me because I just don't have the looks
To distract from the bad streaks

Don't want grey on me (uh)
Such a pain for me (uh)
Not a solid streak (uh)
It's patchy rows, you see (uh)
Won't wreck my life, it's true (uh)
I know that shit is true (uh)
Feelin's differ on that, true, hey

Pain (uh), pain, alalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Pain (uh), pain, alalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Pain (uh), pain, alalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Pain (uh), pain, alalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala

Goddamn grey on me
That I hate to see (uh)
No seniority
I feel I'm owed, you see
I'm not ninety-two (uh)
Thirty is the truth (uh)
One hair will change what's assumed, hey

On the day my hair goes completely white or gone
My ritual is off, I can let it go
'Til then, pain from hair growth undoin' will stay on
Each follicle plucked off because I'm a joke


I like to think the "alalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala" bits are the "ow, pulling that hair hurt" screams of the singer. Said singer is almost me, just without the obsessive checking for non-brown hairs every morning. If I see it, I yank it, because it just looks bad. I dunno how Rogue does it, TBH.
