The Lyrics

My music hobby is performing old songs (mainly 30’s through 70’s). I write funny parodies for some of them. I change the song’s serious theme to something funny but retain original lyrics and rhyme as much as possible. This one got started by changing the song theme from "take the ribbon from your hair" to "take the rosebush from your hair".
Take the rosebush from your hair
It’s not good for you at all
Thorns a sticking in your skin
Blood is dripping on the wall

Please don’t lay down by my side
Til those thorns are out of sight
With a rosebush in our bed
We’ll never make it through the night

Why you choose this strange hairdo
I don’t try to understand
If it’s still this way tomorrow
I will surely need a friend

When the rosebush’s dead and gone
And completely out of sight
I won’t choose to be alone
And we can make it through the night

Thinking of Mr Kristofferson . . . The yellow rose of '" Michangelo '"is quite hypnotic in its scent . . . might make you the thorns forget!
