Ten Songs About Redheads You Have To Hear

‘Fell in Love With a Girl’ by The White Stripes

Red hair with a curl
Mellow roll for the flavour
And the eyes were peeping
Can’t keep away from the girl
These two sides of my brain
Need to have a meeting

 

‘Valerie’ by The Zutons

‘Cause since I’ve come on home, well my body’s been a mess
And I’ve missed your ginger hair and the way you like to dress
Won’t you come on over, stop making a fool out of me
Why won’t you come on over Valerie?

 

‘Jolene’ by Dolly Parton

Your beauty is beyond compare
With flaming locks of auburn hair
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green

 

‘Ginger’ by Twin Sister

Ginger on your head
Threw my coat
No more I drink spicy pink
Spicy pink soup
I love you
For hiking through the grainy parts of New York
But I vanished appeared on an island
Ginger kids can be nothing but violent

 

‘Red Headed Woman’ by Bruce Springsteen

Well brunettes are fine man
And blondes are fun
But when it comes to getting a dirty job done
I’ll take a red headed woman
A red headed woman
It takes a red headed woman
To get a dirty job done

 

‘Prejudice’ by Tim Minchin

Only a ginger can call another ginger, ginger
Only a ginger can call another ginger, ginger
So listen to me if you care for your health
You won’t call me ginger ‘less you’re ginger yourself
Only a ginger can call another ginger, ginger

When you are a ginger life is pretty hard
Years of ritual bullying in the school yard
Kids calling you Ranga and Fanta Pants
No invitation to the high school dance
But you get up and learn to hold your head up
You try to keep your cool and not get het up
But until the feeling of I’ll is truly let up
Then the word is ours and ours alone

 

‘Ginger Ninja’ by Fox Comet

 

Ginger Ninja, show me your moves
You are the deadliest ginger dude

 

‘Ginger’ by David Devant And His Spirit Wife

Do you feel born out of time?
Does all the world seem behind you?
You must be ginger
And when you walk down the street
Do people tread on your heels?
And wag a finger?

‘Ginger’ by Caroline England

What’s this? Do I sense your jealousy?
I bet deep down you’d love to be ginger like me
I knew a wise man, do you know what he said?
Once you’ve tasted ginger you’ll never want anything else instead

 

‘You Need Me, I Don’t Need You’ by Ed Sheeran

From day one, I’ve been prepared
With vo5 wax for my ginger hair
So now I’m back to the sofa, giving a dose of what the future holds
‘Cause it’s another day
