Diary of a Mad Woman

Being on the road is really a fun life experience. Seeing new sights around our beautiful country is something I would recommend to anyone. But if there's one thing that I absolutely hate, it's trusting my hair to a complete stranger!
Some of you will remember musical "Hair" years ago. The "year" is 1968. The "place" is a park in Greenwich Village, NYC. It goes something like this...

She asks me why
I'm just a hairy guy
I'm hairy noon and night
Hair that's a frightI'm hairy high and low
Don't ask me why
Don't know
It's not for lack of break
Like the Grateful Dead, Darling
Gimme head with hair
Long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming,
Streaming, flaxen, waxen
Give me down to there hair
Shoulder length or longer
Here baby, there mama
Everywhere daddy daddy
Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair
Let it fly in the breeze
And get caught in the trees
Give a home to the fleas in my hair
A home for fleas
A hive for bees
A nest for birds
There ain't no words
For the beauty, the splendor, the wonder
Of my...Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair
I want it long, straight, curly, fuzzy
Snaggy, shaggy, ratty, matty
Oily, greasy, fleecy
Shining, gleaming, streaming
Flaxen, waxen
Knotted, polka-dotted
Twisted, beaded, braidedPowdered, flowered, and confettied
Bangled, tangled, spangled, and spaghettied!
Oh say can you see
My eyes if you can
Then my hair's too short
Down to here
Down to there
Down to where
It stops by itself
They'll be ga ga at the go go
When they see me in my toga
My toga made of blond
Brilliantined
Biblical hair
My hair like Jesus wore it
Hallelujah I adore it
Hallelujah
Mary loved her son
Why don't my mother love me?
Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair
Today, I am overjoyed! I got a great hair cut and the price was only $12 bucks!
Life is good!
