Shaved for Nuthin'


Liner Notes:You have to shave your legs to be considered a serious cyclist or triathlete, right? Or do you? We pondered that question...for about three minuntes.

They looked at me, shakin' their heads
I broke a cycling rule, one that's unsaid
I feel the heat, heat of their stare
Boy, you gotta take a razor to that hair

I lathered up, swallowed my pride
Touched that razor to my legs and cried
Smooth as silk, maybe now I'll get respect
Gain some speed, my rep I'll resurrect

Shaved for nuthin'
No faster for the pain
Shaved for nuthin'
Hang my head in shame

I hit the course, sure wasn't faster
But my legs, were smooth and alabaster
I just don't get it, I should feel cool
But all feel like is like a cross-dressing fool

It's not for me, this odd way of life
All I can think, is I look like my wife
Who shakes her head, wags a finger at me
And says, "well do you sit, do you sit now when you pee?"

Shaved for nuthin'
No faster for the pain
Shaved for nuthin'
Hang my head in shame

Shaved for nuthin'
Nothing but this razor burn
Shaved for nuthin'
My gender can't discern
