Hair Songs and Lyrics

 Hair, it's part of our bodies but a different kind of body part.  It grows forever or vanishes completely. Sometimes it gets frizzy in the rain.   It can turn colors by itself even without our help.  Other body parts don't do those things (we hope).   How many songs can we come up with that are about or mention hair?  I will start with the obvious, "Hair" from the musical and by the Cowsills.

"If you're going to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you're going to San Francisco
You're gonna meet some gentle people there.

Summertime will be a love-in there
In the streets of San Francisco
Gentle people with flowers in their hair"
