Hoodoo Gurus - Lend Me Your Comb Lyrics

Lend me your comb
It's time to go home
I got to go past
My hair is a mess

Your mammie will scold
Your pappie will shout
Unless we come in
The way we went out

Kissing you was fun honey
But thanks for the date
But I must come to run honey
But you know baby it's getting late

Just wait till I say
My darling
Lend me your comb
We got to go home
Kissing you was fun honey

But thanks for the date
But I must come to run, honey
But sugar, it's getting late

Just wait till I
Say, my darling
Lend me your comb
We got to go home

    Another cover the Beatles did better than the original (and, yes, I am a CP fan).

    Perkins’ last single at Sun, before moving to Columbia later in 1958. Believe this was actually the B-Side, with ‘Glad All Over’ on the Flip. Sam Phillips at Sun, Riding high with ‘Raunchy’ by Bill Justis, ‘Great Balls of Fire’ by Jerry Lee, and ‘Ballad of a Teenage Queen’ by Johnny Cash, had some spare money lying around and put some into promoting Perkins. A full page ad ran in Billboard in January, 1958 proclaiming that ‘Lend Me Your Comb’ was up and away, but it only made it to #60 on the CashBox charts, and Billboard didn’t even recognize it in the top 100. Carl Perkins, the guy who broke out with ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ right when Elvis first became famous with ‘Heartbreak Hotel’, would not have another record ever make it into the top 40. When ‘Lend Me Your Comb’ was released, Elvis had ‘Don’t’ and ‘Jailhouse Rock’ both riding very high. In late 1957, Perkins was featured in the Rock ‘n’ Roll movie ‘Jamboree’. The film had originally been planned when ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ was riding high on the charts, and Perkins was cast as the star. Well, his fortunes had changed after a car accident in Mar, 1956, and when the film was released labelmate Jerry Lee Lewis, singing ‘Great Balls of Fire’, drew all of the attention. That was the final straw for Carl, who was sick of being neglected at Sun because Sam was promoting Cash & Jerry Lee.
