If ever you meet a man with a unique beard, do not be fooled if he tells you he's evolved.

There once was a man who claimed to be evolved 

And everybody who passed him must be told 

The beard which presented itself upon his face

Proved this to the girl in leather and lace 


Young, pretty and naive was she 

"This man's beard does seem to be

Unlike my Uncle's and brother's too 

Even my third cousin, Peter Petagru" 


"I'm evolved, you see" was his response 

Before turning on his heel and leaving at once 

So the story was told to all who could hear 

As the man with the beard stood very near 


Tall and proud like a sunflower

How wonderful it felt to have some power 

It was not thanks to his beard but his brain 

Which thought of this way to find fortune and fame 


Nine years later in a Pharmacy out of town 

The bearded man was spotted by Miss Brown 

He was secretly buying a can of dye 

"Dye for Beards" was the source of his lie 


"The man's not evolved, he cheated us all" 

Poor Miss Brown felt the biggest fool 

It was she who first believed the hair on his face 

Was as unique as her leather and lace
