ONE LITTLE HAIR ON HIS HEAD (Harry Castling / Ernest John) Gracie Fields - 1932 Mister Potts had money, lots more than his share Ev'ry kind of luxury, but hadn't any hair Did I say he'd no hair? Well, that's just where I'm wrong, For he'd one right in the middle of his head, two inches long He treasured it, he watered it before he went to bed That one little hair on his head He smiled at it an' he talked to it, such tender words he said To the one little hair on his head He crinkled it, he sprinkled it with all the best perfume Till nobody but Mister Potts would stay in the room He eyed it and he dyed it to a blond and then a red That one little hair on his head Hours before the mirror, day and night he'd stand Filled with admiration for the hair that beat the band "Signor Paderewski, though he's got a lot I wouldn't change this one," he'd say, "for all the hair he's got" He sighed to it, he prayed to it while sitting on the bed That one little hair on his head And swore he'd never leave it till the day that he was dead That one little hair on his head He bobbed it and massaged it, fixed it in a curler tight In case a burglar stole it in the dead of the night, (you know you can't tell) The ladies never kissed his lips, they always kissed instead The one little hair on his head He shingled it, he fondled it when he jumped out of bed The one little hair on his head He brushed it till it shone just like a piece of silver thread The one little hair on his head Little flies in Summer all around it used to play Just like village maidens round the maypole in May He left it to a museum when he died, I've heard it said That one little hair on his head (I'm glad he left it to somebody) (Be a shame if he died and took it with him, wouldn't it) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - September 2015)
