I always thought this song was really cool, but I never figured out the last line of the chorus. Been wondering long enough. Somebody here might know. Sounds like "bread prosset" (inside ()= not sure)

DON'T TOUCH MY HEAD-J.B. Lenoir

I got shined shoes and a nail manicure
A diamond ring, man I got everything

So don't you touch my head
Don't you touch my head
Don't touch my head cause I just got a (bread prosset-?)

(With a) wave in my hair I feel shined and bright
How would you like me shine tonight
Cause you can knock me down, drag me left and right
Jack, if you touch this head man, you got a fight

So don't you touch my head
Don't you touch my head
Don't touch my head cause I just got a (bread prosset)

I'm drinking TNT cause I'm smoking dynamite
If you touch this head, you get a left and right
Up on side your head, up on side your head
I go upside your head cause you tore up my (bread prosset)

Happy New Year to all

"brand new process"..........referring to the process of chemically straightening the hair of African-Americans, which was once quite popular but EXTREMELY painful.

i don't know if this will get through its such an old thread
but i do no that the "brand new process..." is the practice of black barbors in the past would cut black mens hair with a flame, i know that sounds bisare but it works well, though i imagine it stunk
it makes more sense than a man ov that era getting his hair straitened

"bread prosset" is "fresh process", not "brand new process".

I've long wondered if "Blue Suede Shoes" was inspired by "Don't Touch My Head".

James Cotton recorded a jive version of "Red Riding Hood" in which Red says to the Wolf, after the usual "what big eyes you have", "and your process is out of sight".

Muddy's process.
