great beard song!

Sunday, February 3rd, 2008

Noah recently wrote to inform me that some other students at his school told him about beards.org. After checking out the site, he was inspired to write a song about beards! He performs his song in this video:

Lyrics:

I got the invitation
A month in advance.
They said it’s black tie optional
Just no athletic pants.

My head starts to accelerate
What should I wear?
I’m really more worried
About what do with my hair!

Who don’t like facial hair?
They’re insane, I must declare!
Having a beard is the best thing in the land
It is the manliest part of being a man!

I will be warm in the winter
I will be looking totally extreme
The only problem at the moment
Is that I am only fifteen!

So when can I grow it?
It will be here soon, I guess
While I’m growing my soul patch
I’ll be growing it with finesse!

Chin Curtain? FO CERTAIN!
Balbo? FO SHO!
Extended goatee? YES PLEASE!
Just grow a ‘stache, or maybe a soul patch

Who don’t like facial hair?
They’re insane, I must declare!
Having a beard is the best thing in the land
It is the manliest part of being a man!

….

Awesome song, Noah!!! Thanks!

Great song. Fun video. It’s old, but it’s always nice to hear a great song with a video that brings a smile.

It’s Amanda Miguel and bearded Diego Verdaguer’s Volvamos a Empezar. I used to have the the CD that this was on. I misplaced it, though, and never found it again.

All right, this has nothing to do with beards…except that Diego, who does the lead vocal on this song, has been seen with a beard at times. I always liked the original version of this song and this remake is even better.

UPDATE: The embedded YouTube link went bad. One that still works has been substituted above. Below, I’m adding the video of the original version. If you watch closely, you’ll see a young Paulina Rubio and Thalí­a. They did not return for the remake.
