The Lyrics

Whoops, wrong hairpiece!
It was dark, I guess the night
Was still lingering outside
Hard to see before dawn breaks
That's why this is my green toupee

Look a twit, that I'll admit
But I will grin and bear with it
Not much at risk right here today
By sticking with my bright green toupee

Got this wig for a dumb plan
That I once had, but alas
From my failed Cosmo cosplay
Stuck today with the green toupee

Looks stupid, won't deny it
Never been one to up and quit
Until I get back home today
I'll look silly with my green toupee

Back at home, my real wig waits
This green toupee rests in its place
Other types of coloured wigs
Are grouped there, seems dumb, I guess

Asking to miss when I get dressed
The right one might never get to rest
On my head, that's worth this weird day
I spent in my green toupee

And for some reason, I got green hair. You gotta have green hair.
