Darlin' don't you go and cut your hair
Do you think it's gonna make him change?
"I'm just a boy with a new haircut"
And that's a pretty nice haircut
Charge it like a puzzle
Hit me wearin' muzzles
Hesitate to die, look around, around
The second drummer's drowned
His telephone is found

Music scene is crazy
Bands start up each and every day
I saw another one just the other day
A special new band
I remember lying
I don't remember lies
I don't remember what

But I don't care
I care
I really don't care
Did you see the drummer's hair?

Advertising looks and chops a must
No big hair!
Songs mean a lot
When songs are bought
And so are you
Bitch, rant down to the practice room
Attention and fame so
Career, career, career

    malkmus' take:
    "It begins with me iimagining some girl bummed out on her boyfriend. 'What am I going to do?' she's asking herself. 'Cut my hair!' It could be anything, really- whatever you try to do to get a man or woman to like you. It nevers works. Someone's always got the upper hand. The it goes on to how the music world's the same, the way it concentrates on little outside things that seem cool, like your thrift-shop clothes or the amount of stubble you have on your chin. These are the things that seem to make one band different from the next- how long their hair is. It's not mt saying 'Get short hair!' I'm totally into long hair. I'd have it if I could, but it looks bad on me."
