Kelly was a girl I met
When she was working at a Chinese restaurant
Her friends all though she was so nice
But that's not what she wanted
So she built up all her hair
And shake it like she just don't care
But someone with a comb put it on her head
And he messed up all of her hair

He messed it up in the front
He messed it up in the back
Real bad side to side
Oh, it looked so slack
And if Kelly were here today
She'd say, how can you send me to my grave
With that hair

Billy was a guy I guess I knew
From a class I took in school
Everyone made fun of him
When they decided he wasn't cool
So he grew out all his hair
And sprayed it like he just don't care
But someone with a brush
Parted him on the side
And she messed up all his hair

She messed it up in the back
She messed it up on the side
Couldn't hide it with a hat
Couldn't find no place to hide
And if Billy were here today
He'd say, how could you leave me that way
With my hair

Influences include Violent Femmes, the Velvet Underground & Talking Heads, but the music of his forebears is filtered through his own distinctive world view & sonic approach, resulting in a creation uniquely his own.

Simple without being simplistic, accessible without being sycophantic, & clever without feeling smug, he achieves a compelling balance between the new & the familiar. - Scott Hollis
