The Lyrics

Dedicated to my father, who was obsessed with everyone having short hair, and hated Rock and Roll.
When in the Marines in fifty-seven
I was a Corporal, and then a General
Then along came those filthy hippies
Not so attractive that mop they're growin'

Hey, hairy man, what's that mane now?
Is everybody gay?
Hey, hairy man, what's that mane now?
Is everybody gay?

I was always shaved and trimmed and sheared off
Quite a big redneck, always swearing
I fought the war for all you beatniks
Who can tell friggin' boy from girls now?

Hey, hairy man, what's that mane now?
Is everybody gay?
Hey, hairy man, what's that mane now?
Is everybody gay?

You're so, so like a woman to me (so like a woman to me)
So, (so), so (so) like a woman to me ( like a woman to me)

People live and learn but I refuse to
I close my mind and just go play banjo
When all of my griping just gets to me
I will head on home and clean my rifles

Hey, hairy man, what's that mane now?
Is everybody gay?
Hey, hairy man, what's that mane now?
Is everybody gay?

Hairy man, hairy man, hairy ma-a-a-an

Stay tuned, Highlander, I might have a hair story to tell you either late tonight or sometime tomorrow morning...excellent parody here.

Thanks Johnny, but I post my "lesser" or more personal stuff on the weekends. I used your trick of keeping a couple original lines, with context changing the meaning. Will look for yours, as always.

Yes, as paul said, very appropriate for dads circa 1971 - 555

Okay Rick, now that it's official that I've been cast in my local community theatre's latest production ("Angel Street"), I can tell you my hair-story --- I will be voluntarily cutting-off my ponytail for the role. For more info you can view my newest posting on the "Parody Writers Photo Thread" on the Messageboard.

P.S. You can be pretty sure I'll be writing some parodies inspired by my experiences rehearsing & performing in this play, at some point ... but I have to spend a LOT more time memorizing huge quantities of dialogue than writing parodies, at least through the month of February. I'm expecting John Barry to leave me in the dust on the Authors-list very soon!

Good luck, Johnny, I know you'll do well. And I prefer to think of John B as building another pyramid next to ours. By the way, I'd been meaning to do this for a long time, but I finally took one of my parodies and reconverted it back into an original song, just like I did with you. I'll post it here soon, and you can compare transformations.

Thanks Rick, and I shall read your good wishes as the traditional theatrical blessing of "break a leg" !

And I like your perspective on JB's accomplishment, he's building another parody-pyramid next to ours - I agree with that metaphor whole-heartedly...but...who's building the Sphinx?

I look forward to hearing your new recording. Thanks again.
