"Wig" as written by and Kate/schneider Pierson....
What's that on your head?
A wig
What's that on your head?
A wig
I say, what's that on your head?
A wig
What's that on your head?
A wig
Wig, wig, wig, wig, wig, wig, wig, wig

Sally's gotta wig
Ricky's gotta wig
Baby's gotta wig
Kate's gotta wig
Fred's gotta cheap toupee
Keith's gotta big bouffant on
We all got wigs, so... Let's go!

On the neon, neon side of town
On the neon, neon side of town

Julia's gotta wig
Phyllis has a wig
Cindy's gotta wig
J.T.'s gotta wig
Carol's fall fell
Bubba's gotta big bouffant on
We all got wigs, so... Let's go!

On the neon, neon side of town
On the neon, neon side of town

On the neon, neon side of town
On the neon, neon side of town

Hey I bought my wig at the Diana shop with a purse to match!
My hairpiece is so hot it sets off fire alarms!
Did something crawl in your wig and die?
Sometimes I part my wig in the middle, and sometimes I tease it a little!
Hey did your wig get caught in a lawnmower or something?
That one looks like she's got a skunk sittin' on top of her head!
Craig bought his wig at a thrift store, you know why?
Why?
'Cause he didn't want toupee!

On the neon, neon side of town
On the neon, neon side of town

What's that on your head?
A wig
What's that on your head?
A wig
I say, what's that on your head?
A wig
What's that on your head?
A wig
Wig, wig, wig, wig, wig, wig, wig, wig

Wigs on fire! Wigs on fire!
Wigs on fire! Wigs on fire!
Wigs on... Fire!
Wigs on... Fire!
Wigs on... Fire!
Wigs on... Fire!
It's 25-25 and we've got the most wigs alive!

Wigs on fire! Wigs on fire!
Wigs on fire! Wigs on fire!
Take it... Higher!
Take it... Higher!
Take it... Higher!
Take it... Higher!
It's 25-25 and we've got the hottest do's alive!

I like to call my wig "Primadonna"
You should hear what it calls you!
I look like cotton candy.
They got so many flies on her wig, she needs a bug zapper!
I want to go and get a moose on your head!
A moose!

    General CommentThis is one of my most favorite B-52s songs ever.
    Just pure silly nonsensical fun.

    General CommentSuch a tribute to the hairstyles of Kate and Cindy, this song is by far the funniest. I especially love the random jokes in the middle and end of the song. Perfect fit.
    Yay bouffants!!! *Also, tribute to the band name: B-52 = beehive hairstyle
