Please call a doctor, I’ve been so depressedThat I think that I’m finally breakinI can’t quite explain, I can’t feel any painBut I know that this time I’m not fakinOh, what can it be, oh, inside of meI saw my doctor he said man you look sickHe said I think you better do something quickHe checked me over and he said I was fitWhat you need is a change, have a shave, find a chicYour body functions, but your hair’s a disgraceYou shouldn’t let it hang all over your faceChange your image ’cos you look out of placeComb your hair, put on weight, try to look up to dateWhy don’t you put in some permanent wavesYou’ll look smooth you’ll look cool, you’ll be laughingYou’ll get lots of dates, you’ll be made you’ll get laidYou’ll get out and about, you’ll be laughingOh, you’ll be o.k. once you get those permanent waves,I was really up but now I’m down once againI went out walking and it started to rainMy perm washed out it just got flushed down the drainMy neurosis returned, I’m a wreck once againBut wait ’til I get back my permanent wavesI’ll be cool, I’ll be smooth, I’ll be laughingI’ll be all the rage with my permanent wavesAnd I’ll start a new craze, I’ll be laughingOh, I’ll be o.k. once I get my permanent wavesStart a new craze, permanent wavesI’ll be all the rage, my permanent waves
