lyrics

Let’s beard
Oh Yeah

VERSE 1

When I was a boy, soon becoming a man
I feared that my life would pass without plan
But at the fortune teller tent at the county fair
I found four bearded gentlemen with perfect hair

The whiskers of the first went down to his knees
The beard of the second as round as you please
Sideburns on the third stretched a foot in space
The fourth so fuzzy couldn’t see his face

They said,

CHORUS 1

“For those about to grow your beard
We salute you
For those who are not sheep to be sheared
We salute you”

VERSE 2

They said, “now that you are coming of age
It’s time you take your place on life’s stage
A boy’s face is smooth, but that’s in the past
It’s time you met your destiny at last”

Now I spend my days preaching the word
That it’s time to break from the beardless herd
If your life seems empty, alone or bad
Just grow a beard, you’ll no longer feel sad

CHORUS 2

For those about to grow your beard
I salute you
For those who did while others sneered
I salute you

BRIDGE

My mom was on her deathbed
Not much strength or life within
She said her last wish was to see
Her handsome baby’s chin
Everyone said I should do it
That my beard would soon regrow
But every hair is special
So I had to tell her no

CHORUS 3

For those about to grow your beard
We salute you
For those with patchy whiskers who persevered
We salute you

For those about to grow your beard
We salute you
For those who are not sheep to be sheared
We salute you
