The Lyrics

you sure ain't young, you old fart, you have lost your looks
you've turned all gray...stringy and limp
you need to primp
you need to primp
you need to primp
and so your hair, you're changin', girl, with a new rinsin'
thought you'd go and apply
some vivid red dye
vivid red dye
vivid red dye
vivid red dye

mix up that batter through it
soon will be a scarlet hue
you've got to blend it well
or else its gonna look like hell

you've lost your gray...now you look hip
your hair has zip
your hair has zip
your hair has zip
and with his color, strange, new life, your mop was given
cause you went and applied
some vivid red dye
vivid red dye
vivid red dye
vivid red dye

Great job - 555 - only one minor quibble with pacing, not serious enough to drop the 5 to a 4. "or else its gonna look like hell" is two syllables short of matching "you've got to give the other fellow hell".

Great song! Ironically, Guns N' roses covered this song, and the lead singer is 45 and has red hair.

Here's 555 gallons of vivid red dye. The original song is one of the best James Bond themes ever.

Maybe it's true: the middle-aged are a dyeing breed...

And the follow-up: "Vivid Red Eye"? or was that term not used on other high schools?

Alvin, here I am at the parody that you suggested to me. It is quite good, and I relate to it about the subject of dyeing hair. I dye my hair a lot, perhaps too much, because my natural color is a rather unattractive shade of dishwater blond, and it is currently black, but has been many different colors, including red. 5s.

sir Alvin, Duke 0'Dice, I'm glad that your lady's locks turned out so well ! I let mine go au naturel: golden blonde. Many say I should return to streaking it, but . . . I hate Beauty Shops!
