The Lyrics

I just can't get a good haircut.
Went into Great Clips with half-decent hair
Now everywhere I go the people stare
Oh, the damage done

The people stare and all the children cry
My girlfriend left me for another guy
Oh, the damage done

Said "Just a little off the sides and back"
But I...look like the victim of a shark attack
Oh, the damage done

She said "Don't worry" as she smacked her gum
I sat and thought that she seemed kinda dumb
Well, the damage done

Don't know what she used but I would bet my life
It was... safety scissors and a pocket knife
Oh, the damage done

Women seem wicked and the world unkind
When your...head looks like a mangled porcupine
Well, the damage done

I've seen the scissors and the damage done
Now I'm the ridicule of everyone
At least I know I'm not the only one

Read the "..." as a slight pause or rest

Excellent! My late mother worked at Great Clips before her death in 1999, and I went there recently. It's a shame how this once decent venture has fallen in its quality. Maybe Neil Young went there too. Have you've seen his latest cut?

I found this by clicking on the 'random' button. This isn't half bad, a cut above - there's not a lot you can do with the OS.

Yeah, I know about those haircuts from hell! But it will grow back, Sir !
