Barber Shop (Waits Tom)

Good morning Mister, snip snip snip With your hair cut just as short as mine Good morning Mister, snip snip snip With your hair cut just as short as mine Bay rum, Lucky Tiger, butch wax, crackerjacks Shoe shine, jaw breaker, magazine racks Hangin' round the barber shop, a side-burnin' close crop Mornin' Mr. Furgeson, what's the good word with ya? Stayin' out of trouble like a good boy should I see you're still cuttin' hair, I'm still cuttin' classes I got a couple passes to the Ringle Bros. Barn Bail circus afternoon You lost a little round the middle and you're lookin' real good Sittin' on the wagon â??stead of under the hood What's the low-down, Mr. Brown, I heard your boy's leavin' town? I bought myself a Struggle Buggy, sucker's powder blue Throw me over th' sports page, Cincinnati lookin' good I always been for Pittsburgh, and I lay you 10 to 1 The Pirates get the pennant and the series â??fore their done The hair's gettin' longer, you know the skirts are gettin' shorter And don't you know that you can get a cheaper haircut if you want to cross the border If your mama saw you smokin', well she'd kick your ass Now you put it out, you juvenile, and put it out fast Well, if I had a million dollars, what would I do? I'd probably be a barber, not a bum like you Still got your paper route, now that's just fine And you can pay me double, â??cause you gypped me last time And don't you know that you can keep a little circus money and spend it on a girl And just remember that I give the best haircuts in the whole wide world I give the best haircuts in the whole wide world Good morning Mister, snip snip snip With your hair cut just as short as mine Good morning Mister, snip snip snip With your hair cut just as short You got your hair cut just as short You got your hair cut just as short as mine
