lyrics

VERSE 1

Every day I am thankful
That although I'm going bald
I have a full and flowing beard
That stays with me through it all

When times get very tough
When people let me down
I run my fingers through by beard
It turns my whole day around

I'd never want to loose even
A solitary whisker
Though some people look at me strange
To shave is not the answer

I know that each and every hair
Fills a special role
If I plucked even one out
I'd feel the gaping hole

CHORUS

Don't reject your beard
Every whisker is unique
If someone says to cut it off
Don’t turn the other cheek

Don't reject your beard
Not a single strand
A beard is at its strongest
When you let every hair stand

VERSE 2

My beard may be unruly but
It's still part of my face
Each hair adds as much as the next
All have their place

Some hairs are turning grey
And though I try to look my best
Some are bent or oddly twist
Some stick out from the rest

I’d plainly look much neater
If I went with a goatee
But keeping the whole tangled mess
Is what makes me, me

And the fact my beard looks different
Is not reason to hate
It’s what makes my beard so special
It’s what makes our union great

CHORUS

Don't reject your beard
Let it fill you up with pride
If someone says to cut it off
Tell them "request denied"

Don't reject your beard
Not a single strand
A beard is at its strongest
When you let every hair stand

BRIDGE

A beard is nothing but single hairs
Each is small but nothing compares
To their power when they join as one
These 30,000 hairs won’t be outdone

A beard is nothing but single hairs
Each is small but nothing compares
To their power when they join as one
These 30,000 hairs have only begun

CHORUS

Don't reject your beard
Every whisker is unique
If someone says to cut it off
Don’t turn the other cheek

Don't reject your beard
Let it fill you up with pride
If someone says to cut it off
Tell them "request denied"

Don't reject your beard
Not a solitary strand
A beard is at its strongest
When you let every hair stand
