It used to be a true sign of virility
To possess a thick head of hair
Today men walk around proudly
Quite bald with a confident air
I've seen more hair on a billiard ball
Than on some macho men of today
What do the ladies think of all this?
Do they think it's sexy that way?
Remember the afros back in the 60s?
Such a laughable sign of the times
Sure glad we got over that silly craze
And all those ban-the-bomb signs
Maybe we'll come back to our senses
Perhaps compromise just a little
The ladies will shave off all their hair
That'll give us men a big giggle
What about preservation of the species
Maybe it'll slow us macho men down
Before the world's overrun with people
In a sea of humanity we'll drown!
