Are you going to brush out your hair?
Part it plain remember this time.
Whenever you're done it will give scares
'Cause it does if you don't brush fine

Tell him to take the locks they will not hurt.
(Once it is dried it will only be very clean)
Part it plain get rid of the grime.
(Spacing it narrow and look what you found)
Through it seems get rid of that smirk
(Lookit, get rid of those no need to retain)
You'll be done when you make it shine.
(Sleeps although his hair through creepy things crawl).

Well, I do make a plea to take a strand.
(You do give me a thrill, an inkling of peeves)
Part and make it scary this time.
(Wash what you found until it is clear).
Use the gunk I bought you it makes hair stand.
(Make sure it's clean bet you wish it was done).
Then you'll be a woo!! love of mine.

Tell him to keep hair in what he picked to tether.
(He bellows, he's sounding just like a lion)
Part it, gauge, however this time.
(He's ordered to bare all crawlies with skill)
I hope you gather it in a bunch with leather.
(It is right no more flaws no more crawlies it's gotten)
Now you'll be a true love of mine.

Are you going to brush out your hair?
Part it plain remember this time.
Whenever you're done it will give scares
'Cause it does if you don't brush fine

Very good work on a very hard song to do. With curly hair hard to comb, I relate to this...5's

Thanks Stuart and Dee. The OS is pretty and deceptively easy. :-)

Wow...parody counterpoint... "an inkling of peeves" is brilliant, like Stuart said. Very, very well done, Pat! 5's!

Unusual, but strangely enticing. 555
Guy - October 21, 2004 - Report this comment
"Apart" from being hard to do the idea is brilliant. Excellent write Pat. 555 brush strokes.

Congratulations on managing such difficult pacing AND selecting a funny topic; with longer songs it's hard work to do both at once. Three cases of VO5 for whoever inspired this song with his 'do!

(SOTM WildCard) Seconding Agrimorfee, the Adagio-esque poetic style is evident in this piece.

Like what John Barry said, it's fun to think of Simon singing this about Garfunkel. Fave bit: "Use the gunk I bought you."

Hard song to parody. Well done, Adaggio. I agree with John Barry and Spaff that Garfunkel does seem like the subject of the parody.

Thanks John J.
