Last Words by the Pea Pickin' Hearts was recorded at Sound Biscuit Productions!LYRICS:

Red-flocked walls, red vinyl chairs
A red shag rug, winds up the stairs
A red satin cape, a gold-flecked mirror
A chair for you, all tease & shimmer
A color TV, a jukebox too
A beehive for Mag, a bouffant for you

The Red Light District on the right side of town
Alvina’s Salon, good hair won’t let you down
Gold-lettered windows, mark a red-letter day
Your weekly appointment is just a call away
Come to Alvina’s, tall tales at no charge
Good hair & makeup & rumors at large

Hair in a helmet, time for some polish
Soaked, cut & buffed, flawless as promised
Now down the hall to pluck at the brows
A facial for you, hot steam & towels
Time’s almost up, but first for a bite
A cucumber sandwich & champagne on ice

The Red Light District on the right side of town
Alvina’s Salon, good hair won’t let you down
Gold-lettered windows, mark a red-letter day
Your weekly appointment is just a call away
Come to Alvina’s, tall tales at no charge
Good hair & makeup & rumors at large

Then there’s hairspray, rat, tease & comb
A little more hairspray, feather, blush & tone
A little more hairspray, just ONE more pass
With a little hairspray, close your eyes for the blast

All pink-cheeked & red-lined lips
A cat eye liner & lashes black tipped
Perfumed behind the ears & wrists
Fly aways tamed with a curl & twist
See you next week, not a day sooner
But call me tomorrow if there is a rumor

The Red Light District on the right side of town
Alvina’s Salon, good hair won’t let you down
Gold-lettered windows, mark a red-letter day
Your weekly appointment is just a call away
Come to Alvina’s, tall tales at no charge
Good hair & makeup & rumors at large

Come to Alvina’s, tall tales at no charge
Good hair & makeup & rumors at large
