The Lyrics

Oh you blind-folded me
And then you said, "Here goes!"
I heard a motor shriek
And air begin to flow
At first I couldn't tell
But then I knew it well
"Cause, you own Flowbee
(oh, you own Flowbee)

You put it to my head
I scream in helpless fright
Down to my neck it slips
Sounds like a jet in flight
Oh, please not this again
I pray that it will end
"Cause you own Flowbee
(oh, you own Flowbee)

For you never knew the art of cutting hair
Barber shops cost too much for you
You let it fly, ignored my plaintive cries
Now Lance Link has a better do
(Lance good do)

You gave haircuts to me
You said to let you try
I was in shock for days
I thought that I would die
Oh, please just let it grow
I look a lot like Moe
'Cause you own Flowbee

(For you never knew the art of cutting hair)
(Barber shops cost too much for you)
The bigger guysat school all poked my eyes
And ran off, yelling woob, woob, woo-ooh
(woob, woob, wooh)

You gave that look to me
Last night when I stopped by
I said, "No, mom, no way!"
Besides, I'm forty-five
My hair left long ago
I'm bald as Curley Joe
"Cause you own Flowbee
(you own Flowbee, you own Flowbee)

I meant to write an intro explaining a couple of things: Flowbee is a do-it-yourself hair-cutting machine. Lance Link was the star of Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp (yes he was a chimpanzee) Moe and Curley Joe were Stooges.

I found this extra funny, because I had always wondered if FlowBees really work good, and was thinking of buying one!

An extra funny take on the great old Cindy Walker written tune, originally done by Eddy Arnold, and later by Ray Charles.....I trim you three fives...

(ABC Y 06)I always thought it was silly the way they called the bald Stooge Curly. But this is a great job, Rick.

(ABC-Y) One of the few of your parodies I've missed when it was first posted. I was looking at the title and though frisbee, but that was the Aerobee (I think). Anyways, great parody, the ending was the best and Flowbees do not give good haircuts. 555.

(Y) it's bad enough when they poke your eyes, Rick, but when they run off yelling "woob, woob" well, that just rubs salt into the wounds, I reckon - lol

DKHIMTO (Don't know how I missed this one), but it flows very nicely.
