Hairstyles and attitudes -- are they connected?
Are the styles we embrace a matter of taste, or of values rejected?
Hairstyles and attitudes -- how do they relate?
How well do we use our freedom to choose the illusions we create?

Blow dried, bouffant, basic training
Cops in drag dressed up like whores
Cowboys in pony tails, bankers in bangs,
Presidents in pompous pompadours
Mommas in mohawks, daddies in dreadlocks,
Heavy metal goldilocks trying to look tough
The wet look, the dry look, the FBI look
But can you judge a crook by his coverup?

Hairstyles and attitudes -- are they connected?
Are the styles we embrace a matter of taste, or of values rejected?
Hairstyles and attitudes -- how do they relate?
How well do we use the freedom to choose the illusions we create?

Razor cut, laser cut, chop-in-channel
Curled up, slicked back, hanging in the eyes
Parted left, parted right, straight down the middle
Scientists say your hair never lies
I've done lots of research
It may be just hype, but the latest findings cause me to tremble
Categorize us into three basic types
According to which of the three stooges you most closely resemble

Hairstyles and attitudes -- are they connected?
Are the styles we embrace a matter of taste, or of values rejected?
Hairstyles and attitudes -- how do they relate?
How well do we use the freedom to choose the illusions we create?
Hairstyles and attitudes
Hairstyles and attitudes
