The Lyrics

every night, I'm lyin in bed
taking my rogaine, and creams
thinking about why I'm "shiny head"
thinkin no fair, but it seems.
I've tried the bad comb over
but the sides always looked too rough
my girlfriend was cryin,
I guess she detested my rug

beautiful faces, hair in right places,
lookin that way, I would love
I said to Margaret, just paint on a target
for the crappy birds up above
the same old rug
on top or my mug
just laying there on my head
I know you are crying, you say you're detesting my rug..

I'm thinkin back in time,
whan I used brylcreem
I'm going to call on old Sy,
that hair clubbin' guy
and I could go on dreamin
but every morning,
I wake up not furry
hopin to see hair there today
even some old grey
long as it's mine
"departed" in the middle today

You know, I've never had a hairpiece baby
I didn't think it looked all that rough
but now in your heart
I see you're detesting my rug
oh sweet darlin,
you are detesting my rug
oh oh oh
sweet darlin yu are detesting my rug
every night and every day
you are detesting my rug

There oughta be a law against rugs. My boyfriend shaves his head and it's sexy as hell. And have you ever heard of a guy named Vin Diesel? 'Nuff said. I say embrace your baldness, and keep writing great parodies like this one.

Sorry for editing my name down; it's always too much to write the whole thing down. I just cannot understand why men would want to keep their hair even when it's almost completely gone! Poor thing; she must be scared out of her mind!

Good stuff, Malcolm. Reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where George got a rug, and Elaine couldn't stand it. Very funny 555

I'm committed to going bald with dignity. Just say no to rugs!
