"Rugs From Me To You" as written by and Adam R. Young....
To pay or not to pay that is the question
It refused to stay as it all turned grey
Or William Shakespeare's receding hair

Please excuse the pun, it's hair today, gone tomorrow
So be thankful for what precious locks you have

Toupee, or not toupee, that is the question
And by the way, I just gotta say,
Thank the Lord I'm not going bald

And if I may quip, my curls and I
Are just like heaven
And rest assured, there'll be no parting there

But should my head get bare like Frier Tuck
Hard taste to swallow
It makes me smile, 'cause I know just what I'd do

Yeah if I had more wigs, than I knew what to do with
I'd open a second hand store
And if you ever went bald, you'd recall it
'Cause I'd cleverly call it 'Rugs from me to you'

    General CommentI love this song! It's so cute, and I love how there are so many puns in it.

    Only thing is, I think that it should be "toupee" not "to pay" - a toupee is a hairpiece, and another word for that is a "rug", which explains the title, and the name of his store.

    Anyway, I think that this song is definitely about appreciating what you have:

    "It's hair today, gone tomorrow"
    "So be thankful for what precious locks you have"

    I think that those two parts especially convey the messagae that Adam is trying to get across. Love this song!

    My InterpretationThe whole song is a pun...about hair
    so it's both 'to pay' and 'toupee'

    Adam Young is such a genius

    General CommentAdam is talking about being old and finally saying goodbye to the things that once made us feel we're young. So he used the hair as a pun. (When we get old, our hair turns white and eventually fall.) But at the same time, he says that it shouldn't end there if we don't want it after all. That is why he used the word "toupee" in the following verse. Toupee is a wig. As the person in the song is getting bald due to old age, toupee could mean a second chance/continuation of the story. So what the song advocates is to appreciate whatever we have and enjoy when we still have time; AND if God allows us, let us face our mistakes in the past and make things right now. The closing part says that if we have something to share, let others learn from us - from our mistakes.

    He can write an awesome song about the dentist, appropriate, sweet love songs, AND a song about hair. He is so amazing. :)
