Get A Haircut - George Thorogood


I was a rebel from the day I left school

grew my hair long and broke all the rules

I'd sit and listen to my records all day

with big ambitions of where I could play

My parents taught me what life was about

so I grew up the type they warned me about

They said my friends were just an unruly mob

and I should get a haircut and get a real job


Get a haircut and get a real job

Clean your act up and don't be a slob

Get it together like your big brother Bob

Why don't you get a haircut and get a real job?

I even tried that 9 to 5 scene

I told myself that it was all a bad dream

I found a band and some good songs to play

and now I party all night, I sleep all day

[From: ]

I met this chick she was my number one fan

She took me home to meet her mommy and dad

They took one look at me and said "Oh my God!"

Get a haircut and get a real job


Get a real job

Get a real job

What if I engineer a dog that produces hair that acts as a psuedovirulent and reformats his physiology temporally correlating to the length of the animals hair... I could have an eternal puppy.


My dad cursed me with this song...and I still need a hair cut and a real job

Actually, this is pretty good advice for most people.

I've got long hair and a beard and played the drums - none of that made me any money. Now ... money can't buy you happiness - but it can buy you something to eat and get you somewhere to live where your neighbors aren't criminals.

Fortunately ... I liked working on computers ... as long as I kept my hair and beard off the circuit boards - computers didn't care how I looked.

My parents used to basically tell me this when I was in school well guess what I'm now 43 my hair is down my back ( and I have some piercings) but I've been retired now download 2 years and I do make more than my big brother Bob (who's actually my sister lol) and my dear old mom is 64 and still got a year to go before she gets her pension and even then it will be a third of mine.....who's laughing now eh?
