    Bernice bobs her hair in the barber's in the square
    All her new-found friends are there to see it done
    Bernice bobs her hair she's been driven to despair
    'Cause her cousin doesn't care about anyone

    Her hair was long, her hair was dark
    Her hair fell down her back
    And now it lies upon the floor
    Bernice runs out the door

    Marjorie had told her what to wear to the parties
    Marjorie had told her what to say to the boys
    Now Marjorie was jealous of her social advances
    And presented her with this choice

    "Bernice, bob your her
    You've persistenly declared this intention
    Do you dare to disagree?"
    So Bernice bobs her hair and is instantly ensnared
    In a trap so well prepared by Marjorie

    Her hair was long, her hair was dark
    Her hair fell down her back
    The mirror tells of her mistake
    Her heart is fit to break

    So when it's dark her cousin sleeps
    Into the room she creeps
    Marjorie's curls come down like rain
    Bernice runs for her train
