Lyrics

I have a college buddy named Ken Driver who is a Loyal Little. Ken texted to implore me to do something with Tony's rather casual remark that he once "injected localized female hormones in my head" in an effort to regrow his hair. Upon further research, Mr. Tony included this story in one of his books, along with the admission that he bought a toupee, wore it once and got laughed at by a neighbor. Naturally, my thoughts went right to Bob Marley. Thanks Ken!

All around on Tone's hairless crown
His scalp's coverage is long gone
He blames alopecia and heredity
For shooting female hormones in his head
For shooting localized female hormones in his head
I heard him say
For thirty seconds once I wore a toupee!

Tried shots of estrogen
but he did not get no hair plugs done, oh no! Oh no! Oh!
Tried shots of estrogen
but he did not get no hair plugs done, oh no! Oh no! Oh!

For some reason the line "I fought the bald...and the bald won" occurs to me. Hope somebody can use it! :)

I'd forgotten that column about the hair. Great stuff. I see his bathrobe obsession was alive and well 19 years ago. Rieger's line "not before closing time" - priceless

i hope i'm not the only one who fits this category, but i have read none of Satch's 3 books, and only 2 of his style pieces. i'm certain i've missed his best work....except for the Heads draft.

That column is why I listen to this show. I'm not remotely kidding. Well, I'm always kidding, but, really.

god I love listening to you singing reggae! this is awesome. I started writing something for Dr Feelgood but let it go. you're right...someone had to represent this idea. and it surely will make its way into a jingle down the road.
