Astonishing Wigs is the 31st Silly Song.

Archibald teaches everyone about the history of wigs.

Lyrics

The Announcer: And now it's time for an installment in the History of Fashion with Archibald. The part of the show where Archibald comes out and shares a lesson in the history of fashion.

Archibald: In the olden days, the biggest craze

With the folks who lived back then

Of the bourgeoisie, an accessory

For the women and the men

Not pants or shirt, nor blouse or skirt, or anything made from thread

But woven hair from horse or bear

Situated on the head

Blueberry: Our astonishing wigs

Jimmy: They're enormously big

Lunt: We love our astonishing wigs

All three: Astonishing wigs (2x)

Do you like our astonishing wigs?

Archibald: From most famous queens of greatest means to the lowly duchess fair

Ran a common thread upon the head for those unhappy with their hair

Now you can bet that even pets and livestock would confer

So wigs they took to improve the look of their bristles and their fur

(The Three Pigs come in)

Pig 2: Our astonishing wigs

Pig 1: They're enormously big

Pig 3: We love our astonishing wigs

All three: Astonishing wigs (2x)

Do you like our astonishing wigs?

(Pig 1 oinks)

We are the pigs in wigs

Yes our locks are very big

And we squeal without a care in our artificial hair

Pig 1: Our hearts are most enthralled

Pig 2: Since pigs like us our bald

All three: So we'll sing and we'll smile and we'll proudly flaunt the style of our astonishing wigs

(Pig 2 oinks)

Archibald: And so it's said this fashion spread from the lofty to the low

From prince to pig, the look was big and continued thus to grow

Hence girls and boys would dress their toys in manufactured mops

Then bushes and trees soon too would see small wigs upon the tops

Ha!

Blueberry: Our astonishing wigs

Jimmy: They're enormously big

Lunt: We love our astonishing wigs

(The Three Pigs come in)

All six: Astonishing wigs (2x)

Do you like our astonishing wigs?

(Pig 2 oinks)

Blueberry and Jimmy: These are our twigs in wigs

Jimmy and Lunt: Yes their locks are very big

Three Pigs: And they dance without a care in their artifical hair

Jimmy: We don't panic

Lunt: If their hair gets problematic

Blueberry: We just sit back and smile

Pig 2: For the fabricated style

Blueberry, Jimmy, and Lunt: Of our...

All six: Of our...

(Archibald joins in)

All: Astonishing wigs (Pigs repeat the chorus)

(music ends with Pig 2 oinking, then Larry shows up)

Larry: So you think I'M silly?

Archibald: Well..., yes.

The Announcer: This has been an installment in the History of Fashion with Archibald. Tune in next time to hear Archibald say...

Archibald: So then, after awhile wigs went out of fashion and everyone turned to bell bottoms.

(The Three Pigs have bells attached to their tails, and ringing them)

Larry: Oh, brother...

Chorus: Our astonishing wigs
