I thought some of you might enjoy an old song my dad used to sing for me - I think Burl Ives recorded it as well, or at least a version of it.  I have no idea who wrote it, but I think Burl's version had more verses than my dad's.

He was only a lavender cowboy,
The hairs on his chest they were two,
But he wanted to follow his heroes,
And do as the he-men do.

Chorus:  Dum-de-dum-dum-dum-dum Dum-dum-dum-dum

Red, green and many colored hair tonics
He rubbed on his chest day and night
But when he looked in the mirror next morning,
No new hairs grew in sight.

Chorus:

He battled for Red Nellie's honor,
He cleaned out a hold-ups nest,
He died with two six guns a-smokin,
But only two hairs on his chest.

Chorus:

Ah, a testosterone laden boost for the follicly challenged...

Well, at least you've got transplant possibilities Roll Eyes  As for me, my northern areas, southern areas, and eyebrows all headed out of town about the same time, without ever having given a shot at my chest or my back Cry Such is life.  At least the guy in the song was apparently a good shot.  Man.  I really got the short stick!
