Rusty Metal Frizzy Hair

from Proving Elbert Hubbard Wrong by Once in a Moon



Inspired by a list of "Things Going Wrong At Work" sent by JB which included both "Rusty Metal" and "Frizzy Hair".


Once they would riot while screaming my name
Once I was high on my infinite fame
Once there were groupies that no man could tame
But now every day is grey just the same

Where, where did it all go wrong?
Without hair how can I sing this song?

Where is my crowd?
Is this too loud?
Have I had my day?
Do I need a toupee?

Our metal is rusty, our hair nought but frizz
They say that there’s no place for grey in showbiz
But WD40 and Vidal Sassoon
A bottle of dye and a howl at the moon

Then, then this will all go right
Even in this our blackest night
You’ll see, this is where I take flight

Bring me my crowd
We still play loud
And here we’ll stay
This is our day


from Proving Elbert Hubbard Wrong, released March 1, 2014
