Short Haired Man (In A Long Haired Town)

I was riding on a bus, all the people were staring at me
I was riding on a bus, all the people were staring at me
I said, "Conductor, conductor,
Wonít you tell these people to let me be?"

Up comes the conductor, heís got a peaked cap on his head
Up comes the conductor, heís got a peaked cap on his head
He pointed his finger at me
And this is what he said:

"Youíre a short haired man
This is a long haired town
Youíre a short haired man
This is a long haired town
And until you let your hair grow
Everybodyís gonna push you round"

I went to the local college to study for a degree

The college professor,
He said, "We got no vacancies"

Coz youíre a short haired man etc.

I went in the local boozer to get myself a beer

The barman wouldnít serve me
He said, "Youíre not welcome here"

Coz youíre a short haired man etc.

People always try to change you, donít ask me the reason why

But Iíll be a short haired man
Till the day I die

So I guess until I let my hair grow
Everybodyís gonna push me round

But I donít care
