Almost cut my hair

When I found myself approaching 60 I started letting my hair grow (I always did love hair) just as a matter of defiance, but once I turned 60 I just started to feel like the old guy with the ponytail. out in The Stacks we keep lots of wonderful old books. These will soon get housed in a separate building (sob)Funny though, that the only guys wearing long hair these days seem like the guys who would have jeered back in the 60s, and offered to cut it! Bikers, Truckers, World Wide Wrestling ‘actors’, Heavy Metal rockers, etc.

I kinda like the Gandalf/wizard thing of silvery locks, (even if I don’t do fantasy and sword and sorcery, etc) – sort of goes with being a granddad.

Ah well…

Almost cut my hair
It happened just the other day
It was getting kind of long
I could have said it was in my way

But I didn't and I wonder why
I feel like letting my freak flag fly
And I feel like I owe it to someone

Must be because I had the flu for Christmas
And I'm not feeling up to par
It increases my paranoia
Like looking into a mirror and seeing a police car

But I'm not giving in an inch to fear
Cos I promised myself this year
I feel like I owe it to someone

When I finally get myself together
I'm gonna get down in some of that sweet summer weather
I'm going to find a space inside to laugh
Separate the wheat from the chaff

Cos I feel like I owe it, yeah
Said I feel like I owe it, yeah
You know I feel---- like I owe it yeah to someone
