George Carlin FM And AM The Hair Piece One of the things that occurred when I began to uh, y'know, feel some changes happening to me... naturally, I was kinda still entertaining in gin joints, y'know- I realize they sell gin here, but it's really not the same as middle-class nightclubs where I spent like a lotta years and it was weird to start having hair and start having a beard and to come out, y'know, to all these folks- lotta Shriners and hookers and salesmen.which are the same as hookers, really, if you get right down to it. Uh, it was just strange. I had to find a way to break the ice. I told them a poem. I told them about my hair.
I'm aware some stare at my hair In fact, some really despair of my hair But I don't care 'cause they're not aware nor are they debonair In fact, they're just square They see hair down to there say BEWARE and go off on a tear I say "No fair" A head that's bare is really nowhere So be like a bear Be fair with your hair Show it you care Wear it to there, or to there, or to THERE if you dare My wife bought some hair at a fair to use as a spare Did I care? Au contraire! Spare hair is fair In fact, hair can be rare Fred Astaire got no hair nor does a chair or a chocolate eclair And where is the hair on a pear? Nowhere, mon frere Now that I've shared this affair of the hair I think I'll repair to my lair and use Nair, do you care? Here's my beard Ain't it weird? Don't be sceered 's just a beard
That's the thing. The word 'beard' shook a lot of people up. Beard! It's not American sounding. BEARD! Lenin had a BEARD! Gabby Hayes had 'whiskers'. Monty Woolley had whiskers. Yeah. Well anyway, I mention hair because I've only had extra hair for about a year now and uh, actually, it's the same hair I always had. It just used to be on the inside. I'm wearing it in a new location, that's all. And I've found there are some advantages to longer hair. For one thing, it covers the pimples on your neck. One of the disadvantages of longer hair- a lot of people think you're a Commie *** junkie. And it's tough to talk them out of three things at once. What would a Commie *** junkie sound like, y'know? (does unintelligible 'Commie *** junkie' impression)
