Curly Tango

Tangled hair everywhere

My hair 

Full of curls

A nice dim brown

Fly, fly, is what they say to each other 

Dancing Tango all over me

I’m struggling to brush my hair

But I sure like it

Morning and night, 24/7

You will see

A girl brushing her hair

After every meal, even snack

My hair

Is everywhere

So what, don’t judge 

I may look ugly but I am surely a happy girl!

Now on my way to downtown 

To meet up with the people that say nonsense

I don’t know how to deal with that 

I’m a mess, how am I going to do this!

I can do it

I’m going to go there,

And my words will shine

Like my dancing curls 

Everything is possible . . . 

Everything is possible!

My hair may be a mess

But . . .

At the end of the day,

It’s all silky and beautifully untangled!
