The Lyrics



All the old dar-LINGS - with their prune
faces and brittle clumps of hair
undergo ex-treme
(make-oh-vers!)
to match their new Elle - underwear

All the young girls slouch - chewing gum
they work for mon-ey - not for love
Golden Gooses - these
dames (way-oh!)
They lay their eggs - then they get the shove

Painted blondes with their steaming wands, say
“hey! likehey, wow!drool!
that is so so cool!”

talk like a beautician

All the slim sty-LISTS - poke their tongues
so cheekily - as they cross the floor
they've learnt their lines
“what great bones!”
they make you think - that you could be more

all the rich wom-en - sick of life
they buy the creams (and the bottle tan)
when the evening comes
(they all want)
to look like their “be you” tishy-an

all the girls, dropping out of school, say
"hey! wow...cool, like...ooo!
that is so so you!"

talk like a beautician

Puckered lips need gloss - cheeks need rouge
so tell me what you - wanna do
score a new man, or...
retain one?
it matters which shade - that you choose

If you want to hang - with these girls
they take their break - in the donut shop
They laugh and tease
(oh wey oh)
they drink their cher-ry - soda pop

All the Jap-an-ese! - with their yen
they want the west-ern hair and eyes
first you make them smile
“kakko ii!”
and then you say “let me improvise”

If you want a fulfilling job, say
"Hey! like.whoa, o.kay!
Total-lee no way! "

talk like a beautician

talk like a beautician

Clever stuff fit really well, like “be you tishy-an," "They lay their eggs - then they get the shove," and "they buy the creams (and the bottle tan)." Also enjoyed the touch of Japanese.

Very very clever and well fit. Tell me you don't spend all day listening to that kind of people. . .poor thing
Stuart McArthur - February 20, 2005 - Report this comment
thanks teensabre - realistically it would be impossible to spend all day listening to them - you'd be alone in a cell on attempted murder charges by lunchtime

(ABC3) Very clever Stu, especially for incorporating the "Way-oh!" sections into the verses themselves!
Johnny D - October 05, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC) Clever implied association with the ancient Egyptian practice of mummifying their Pharaohs -- the priests who did that were "beauticians for the after-life" !
Michael McVey - October 05, 2006 - Report this comment
To a beautician, of course, it beats giving haircuts (or, worse yet, massages) to guys. To the rest of us, a brilliant lampoon. You might want to look at my "Granny California" which ridicules some of the same things.--MM
Red Ant - October 11, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC3) I'd forgotten what a bastard of a song this is pacing-wise, so props for getting it right. You're actually talking about two different professions here: hair stylists/dressers are cosmetologists, whereas "beauticians" primarily do make-up. How do I know that? My mother is a cosmetologist and explained it to me, right after she finished laughing with this parody (as did I). 555+

(ABC3H) See above. I remember this one well- it was one of the "Egyptian" parodies that inspired me to have a go at the OS myself. Fun stuff!

See above, and I love how you work the beautician accent into the song!

Do like totally have to be a Valley Girl in order to like, you know, get a job as a like a beautitican or whatever. Like oh my gawd, this was so like totally cool, dawling! Great like use of all those crazy "Way-o.Way-os", and like a totally rad job on a totally like tricky parody.

Talk like a beautician, 'cause it usually works like a magican !
Agrimorfee - February 27, 2008 - Report this comment
(Artistry) Just a step below Kristof's "Walk With Some Restriction", due to the recurrence of "cross the floor" and "donut shops" from the OS. Still a great one.

(Artistry) Totally gnarly, dude.

(Artistry) You certainly have a knack for writing out pronunciation, don't you? Really old-skool, but it's still kickin'!

(Artistry) Do you think your beautician could help my fat guy? :-D As has been said before, this is grrrreat!
Below Average Dave - March 06, 2008 - Report this comment
(Artistry) I myself think that the recurring lines worked for this parody. . .in fact I think they helped it, however my one slight gripe was trying to pace the choruses over the way-ohs (is that how that sound is spelled?) I think they pace, but I had a lot of trouble figuring out how to pace it trying to sing it--outside of that superb comedy. . .

Loved it as always Stu. A worthy contender in this, the "Battle of the Egyptians" round.
