    It can't much clearer than the title indicates.

    A pleasant tune from Gunhill Road back in the early 70s...

    First the video (thank you youtube) YouTube - Back When My Hair Was Short - Gunhill Road - 1973

    Somewhat tamed down version of the original but still somewhat amusing and yes, even entertaining.
    and the lyrics:

    Back when my hair was short
    I was a white socked sport
    Wore pointed shoes and pegged pants
    Drank till my eyes were red
    Hid Playboy neath my bed
    Slicked my d.a. for the dance
    (when you danced, when you dance)

    Back when my hair was short
    I met some friends in court
    For stealing hubcaps from cars
    Chain smoking under the stars
    Played all night pinball in bars
    And dreamed about love

    We were experts on love
    We talked our way all around it
    And even if we had found it
    We couldnt respond

    Slowly I changed my ways
    College and long-haired days
    Seeing three concerts a week
    An honest to God hippy freak
    Too busy eating to speak
    Except about love
    We held rallies for love
    But no one knew what they stood for
    How many months were they good for
    The meaning is gone

    Soon when my hair is short
    Ill make a full report
    Of how I came back alive
    And what it takes to survive
    Wringing the truth out of jive

    Ill tell you of love
    More than ever its love
    No lack of faith undermines it
    Cause its the hope that well find it
    That makes us go on

    Back when my hair was short
    I was a white socked sport
    Holding beer parties till three
    College appealed to me
    Eastern Philosophy.....

    (mind you it was cleaned up from the original for the purpose of earning the almighty dollar-even then, it was the most important thing)
