The Lyrics


Hey, scissors, those scissors,
Chose scissors—those scissors,
So, scissors.

You’ve got gnarly braids; I’ve an unshorn frizz.
Uncut, these ruffs just ain’t mete—
I say:
Hello, scarecrow, we gotta snip it, ya know?
Tresses, tresses, bye-bye, ta-ta,
Tresses, tresses, ta-ta—shear.
Most-a dread-a-lock-a ever see-a. . .take off, mar da face.
Voulez-vous couper avec moi cheveux,
Voulez-vous couper avec moi?

A matter of pouvoir. . .get them tresses cut,
Just see tonsorial implements shine.
We’re gonna hack and defeat what ain’t been chopped for weeks.
Tresses, tresses, bye-bye, ta-ta,
Tresses, tresses, ta-ta—shear.

Voulez-vous couper avec moi cheveux,
Cut close to skin, where the bean be smooth,
Chop off those cracked ends—olé!
Ain’t like savage beast outside. . .hirsutecide:
Growth no more!
Piled high, it coulda been a beehive
Snippin’ the gray—damn, it’s rife!

We’re gonna make like we’re sheep
And shear it real deep—
Growth no more!

Tresses, tresses, bye-bye, ta-ta,
Tresses, tresses, ta-ta—shear.
Voulez-vous couper avec moi cheveux?
Après nous serons très heureux,
Ma bitte serai comme un pneu,
Gonflé là dedans tes cheveux.

Très amusante. Je peux imaginer le pauvre coiffeur en combat avec les dreadlocks. Moi, je trouve les hommes chauves un peu menaçants. Je vais vous donner trois cinqs, mon ami.

Pretty good work here... no dreadlocks here, just roughly 3 1/2 feet of very curly, very thick hair that I have no plans to cut other than trims and that I've had since the mid 1990s, but I can see why the person in the song was getting a haircut... 5s.
