"You Don't Miss Twice (When You're Shavin' with a Knife)" as written by and Armstrong Thogerson....
Into the woods with a pack and a blade
A cigar box medkit, retractable spade
Flint and steel, pine needle bed
There ain't nothing like the woods to clear your head

I got a real nice piece with a handle of bone
A good friend to have when you're out on your own
But you don't miss twice . . .
When you're shavin' with a knife

Coarse grain sandpaper on my face
Felt my neck and reached for my blade
Thought I'd try my hand at the barber's trade
When you've got a knife, you've got it made

Bathing in the river, it ain't half bad
You get a cool drink while you're takin' a bath
Stick your blade in the water and there's you lather, yeah
But you don't miss twice . . .
When you're shavin' with a knife

Stubble's comin' in strong, scratch your soft skin raw
Like a mean mutt with a razor maw
Swipe along my neck and against my jaw, mm hm

Blood's just blood, no need to fuss
Or get your shorts in a bunch and cuss and cuss
Still you don't miss twice . . .
When you're shavin' with a knife
But you don't miss twice . . .
When you're shavin'
When you're shavin'
When you're shavin' with a knife

    There ain't nothig like the woods
    To clear your head

    I got a real nice piece
    With a handle of bone
    A good friend to have
    When you're out on you're own
    But you don't miss twice...
    When you're shavin' with a knife

    Coarse grain sandpaper on my face
    Felt my neck and reached for my blade
    Thought I'd try my hand at the barber's trade
    When you've got a knife, you've got it made

    And against my jaw, mmm hmm

    Blood's just blood
    No need to fuss
    Or get your shorts in a bunch
    And cuss and cuss
    Still you don't miss twice...
    When you're shavin' with a knife
    But you don't miss twice...
    When you're shavin'
    When you're shavin'
    When you're shavin' with a knife
