"I Am A Human Head" as written by and John C./linnell Flansburgh....
I'm a human head
And my best friend is also a head
I don't really need my best friend

Now my friend is gone
And I'm only a head by myself
I find I don't need my whole head

Now I'm just the top of a head
Just the scalp and the hair
I don't like the scalp, just the hair

What do I really need?
Best friend, also a head
Just the head, just the scalp
Hair

Friend, no
Head, no
Scalp, no
Hair

I am only one human hair
With no scalp for a home
All I need's the top of a head

Now all I am is just a skull
I don't have any head
I'd be glad if I had a head

Now I have a head look at me
I'm a fine floating head
Where is my friend, the other head?

    General CommentI think this song is really sort of comforting. It's saying that sure, we don't NEED anything, but nothing's wrong with wanting small comforts. And the way it's put is pretty funny.
