Fred's Heads

Fred’s Heads—that’s what the sign said.
Want a new head? Come see Fred.
Find the head the fits you best.
Leave your own with all the rest.
Try on one of sunny smiles,
Wear this one that cries awhile.
Here is one that whistles and winks,
Here is one that frowns and thinks.
How about this one that grins?
When you find it’s wearin’ thin,
Bring it back and trade it in.
