Subject: Color of my love's true hair
From: Robby
Date: 20 Sep 00 - 04:11 PM

Most every one is familiar with the song "Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair". However, years ago, the Smothers Brothers did a parody which they called: Black is the Color of My Love's True Hair.

Although I remember the title, I have long forgotten the words. Can anyone help on this?

Thanks

You might try looking on their website, HERE.

I don't remember this one, but I hope someone does, it sounds like a classic.

As I remember it, it had a straight verse of the original, then:

Black is the color of my love's true hair
Though her tresses are exceeding fair.
Black is the color of my love's true hair. But only her hairdresser kno-ows, Only her hairdresser knows!

Thanks, kat and Ivan. I've sent a request through the Brothers' web site. Hopefully, someone there will have the whole thing. Now, that you printed it, I do remember that chorus.

Our version went sort of like

Red is the colour of my true loves' eyes
In the morning when I rise, in the morning etc...

Yellow is the colour of my true loves' tongue....

Black is the colour of my true loves' teeth.....

it sort of went on from there into a tale of hangovers and drunken debauchery, but I've never been able to get past the third verse....

Black is the color of my love's true hair
Though her tresses are red -- as a rose
Black is the color of my love's true hair
But only her hairdresser knows.

Black, black, black is the color of my true love's hair
Her face is like a rose so fair
The prettiest face and the neatest hands
I love the ground on which she stands

I love my love and well she knows,
I love the ground on which she goes
If you no more on earth I see
I can't love you as you loved me
