Lyrics:Purple Toupee

From This Might Be A Wiki
Purple Toupee
By: They Might Be Giants
Year: 1988

I remember the year I went to camp I heard about some lady named Selma and some blacks Somebody put their fingers in the President's ears It wasn't too much later they came out with Johnson's wax I remember the book depository where they crowned the king of Cuba Now that's all I can think of, but I'm sure there's something else Way down inside me I can feel it coming back

Purple toupee will show the way when summer brings you down (Purple toupee when summer brings you down) Purple toupee and gold lamé will turn your brain around (Purple toupee and gold lamé)

Chinese people were fighting in the park We tried to help them fight, no one appreciated that Martin X was mad when they outlawed bell bottoms Ten years later they were sharing the same cell I shouted out, "Free the Expo '67" Till they stepped on my hair, and they told me I was fat Now I'm very big, I'm a big important man And the only thing that's different is underneath my hat

Purple toupee will show the way when summer brings you down (Purple toupee when summer brings you down) Purple toupee and gold lamé will turn your brain around (Purple toupee and gold lamé)

Purple toupee is here to stay after the hair has gone away The purple brigade is marching from the grave

La la la la la la la La la la la la la la la La la la

We're on some kind of mission We have an obligation We have to wear toupees
