Hairspray - From "Hairspray" Soundtrack - Lyrics

Hey, girl! What you doin' over there?
Can't you see? I'm sprayin' my hair!

Let me tell you 'bout the latest craze
Mama's hoping that it's just a phase
But I know it's gonna last forever
You gotta see the way it keeps my head together

I gave my dollar to the drugstore man
I bought that magic potion in a twelve-ounce can
Now I know that when I make the scene
They're gonna stop and wonder, who's that beauty queen

Hairspray, mama told me not to use it
Hairspray, but if I don't, I'm gonna lose it
Hairspray, gimme gimme control
Hairspray, it's got stand-up soul

When the band is playing loud and fast
I duck around the corner, give it one more blast
What a gas! I got an inspiration
We'll be doing the hairspray all over the nation

Hairspray, mama told me not to use it
Hairspray, but if I don't, I'm gonna lose it
Hairspray, I'm gonna rat my hair
They'll be doing the hairspray everywhere

Hairspray
Hairspray
Hairspray

How do you do it? You shake it, you shake that can
Teasing up your hair with the other hand
And then you aim it, you squeeze it, press your finger down
You're doing the hairspray all over town

(spoken)
Hey, girl, I have a dream when I close my eyes
I wish my hair was ten feet high!

Hairspray
Hairspray
Hairspray

Hairspray, oh oh oh oh oh
Hairspray, oh oh oh oh
Oh, oh

Hairspray, mama told me not to use it
Hairspray, but if I don't, I'm gonna lose it
Hairspray, gimme gimme control

Hairspray, mama told me not to use it now
Hairspray, but if I don't, I'm gonna lose it
Hairspray, just gimme gimme control--
