Sign In A Beauty Shop

We are the best at what we do,
Our work is guaranteed.
We strive to make you beautiful--
We know just what you need.

We think our rates are reasonable;
We hope you find them low,
But if you think that they're too high,
You know where you can go.

You've heard about our other fee,
And we admit it's true--
If you're a grump we charge five bucks
For putting up with you.

If you're extremely hard to please,
Or if you're downright mean,
We'll glue your buttocks to the chair
And dye your tresses green!
