1. Hair (inevitably)

He asks me why I'm such a perfect guy.
I'm well-groomed noon and night; hair that's a delight.
I'm fragrant high and low,
Don't ask me why; don't know!
'Tis not that I've not tried
To look like I just died - but I'm

Stuck with this darn hair, long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen.
'Tis even down to there, hair!
Shoulder length, longer (hair!)
Here baba, there nana, everywhere ada ada

CHORUS
Hair! (hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair)
Tied it, dyed it;
Still he can't abide it, my hair!

I let it fly in the breeze and get caught in the trees
But still I can't get fleas in my hair.
No home for fleas, or hive for bees,
Or nest for birds, still there ain't no words
For the beauty, the splendour, the wonder of my

CHORUS
Hair! (hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair)
Tied it, dyed it;
Still he can't abide it, my hair!

He wants it sweat-wet, knotted, rotted,
Snaggy, shaggy, ratty, matty,
Oily, greasy, manky, skanky,
Not gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen,
Not well-tended, unsplit-ened; twisted, beaded, braided;
Coiffeured, buffered and untangled,
Cleaned, preened, moon-sheened and star-spangled.

O-oh, say can you see by my hair's golden gleam?
Then it's still too clean!
Radiant here, radiant there,
Radiant where ... you know I swear
It washes itself!
Doo doo doo doo doot-doot doo doo doot

The girls go astro-runic
When they see me in my tunic
My tunic made of blond, brilliant, Noldorin-style hair.
My hair like Finrod wore it
Oh why can't he adore it?
Oh just like Beren loved him once*
Why don't my Ranger love me?

CHORUS
Hair! (hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair)
Tied it, dyed it;
Still he can't abide it, my hair!
