Budgie – Rape Of The Locks lyrics

You say my hair is much too long
And you are right and I am wrong
I got a way of walking, I got a way of talking
You got a way of living
Don't try to make me live with you, oh you

You've got it in for me in blood
To get my hair cut here tonight
How can you love somebody
When they don't love nobody
It doesn't really matter,
It's coming in to trap me yeah
Oh yeah

I grow my mind inside my head
I grow my hair to keep it fed
I got a way of talking
I got a way of talking
Somebody try to save me,
Gotta believe me baby please
Oh please

I'm gonna live a lot of life
With golden locks around my eyes
How can you love somebody
When they don't love nobody
It doesn't really matter,
It's coming in to trap me yeah
Oh yeah

Said lover
You wanna cut my hair
You wanna cut my hair

You wanna cut my hair

    This is inspired by "The Rape of the Lock" by Alexander Pope wherein a baron sets his eyes upon an especially beautiful young lady named Belinda. During the course of events Belinda beats the Baron at a game of cards after which the baron cuts off one of Belinda curls throwing her into a rage. That portion of the work is filled with double entendres and euphemisms as in the great year of 1714 taking openly about such matters would have been too scandalous.

    "The Rape of the Lock" is in fact a Satire of the heroic tradition wherein Pope makes fun of the tradition style like the Odyssey, the Aeneid, etc. As well as the current culture which had become very trivial. This pairs perfectly with a group like Budgie which broke away from numerous earlier traditions in order to become what they were.
