The Lyrics

Slickum gel, slickum gel:
It’s slick-on time; hair gets sticky.
Gotta sling on to bring
down those locks that fly away.

Skip the side locks, slick the wide top
for tonsorial style.
Then your hair will be sleek from the slickness.
When it’s drafty, you’ll be crafty
with that bouffanted pile
that won’t blow away, ’cause on you smeared
slickum gel, slickum gel.
At slick-on time; hair gets sticky.
Gotta sling on to bring
down those locks that drift away.

Get hair sleeked right on your head site,
giving a lustrous sheen.
It was cropped by tonsorial measure.
There’ll be no bunch of a “man bun”;
such a look is outré.
Don’t even think of mullet! I’d jeer.

Slickum gel (the cowlick plastered down),
slickum gel (the ’lick’s no more around).
It’s sticky slime but not icky.
Ringlets fixed that one time vexed your hair.
No more springy tufts that used to flare.
Groomed you’ll be in a slick way.

Skip the side locks, slick the high top (slickum gel);
for a well controlled pile (slickum gel).
In your hair there’s a feeling of slickness
(it’s slick-on time; mane gets sticky).
Weather’s nasty, cold and drafty (not yet spring),
but your pile won’t go wild (will not spring).
Nicely groomed are you; it will fixed stay.
