The Lyrics

On Groundhog Day of 2005, I voluntarily had the long ponytail that I'd worn for more than 12 years removed, shortly before my performance as Inspector Rough in The Concord Players' production of "Angel Street".
( -- instrumental intro -- )

Knife
Slowly flays
It's but a mane and we get it clipped away

Fuzz
Brightly glossed in sun
Should be flyin', in a bold free gust of fun

Like the twilight in the robe of my head
There won't be much hair a-growin'

More of my skull's seen by the Universe

Whiskers in our ears
(Show) All the years that come and go
Shave fuzz off !
Always off !

He may never have this mane again
He may never have this mane again
He may never have this mane again
He may never have this mane again

( -- instrumental -- )

Dreams
Of the mane
And photos too, mem'ries plenty, still remain

Fleece
I had piles above
Sacrificed it, for a role I'd just begun

Like an actor on a golden stage
I must gather all my courage

Bravely clip off what I've grown for years

Cast away my fears
And although tears may come and go
Shave it off -- all shaved off !

He may never have this mane again
He may never have this mane again
He may never have this mane again
He may never have this mane again

So,
I wanna act while the actin' is easy
I wanna cry when it makes it work right

I may
Never
Have this
Mane again

So why'd I chop it, ask you?

'Cause,
I want to feel like my role is my friend
I'll dive within it, and it's within me then

I may
Never
Have this
Mane again

That's why I chopped it -- for truth, baby!

( -- instrumental -- )

He may never have this mane again
He may never have this mane again
He may never have this mane again
He may never have this mane again

( -- instrumental ending -- )

Johnny, I really like the original song and the message it has, and give you my best vote solely for that--but your parody's good too.
