The Hopscotch Song




With ‘Hair Play’, first flash of image in front of eyes is of a well groomed lady, playing Hopscotch with her hair open and every passerby admiring her gorgeous tresses. How totally mesmerizing it would be, if we girls could just live and more importantly, play with our hair in a rhythmic manner, just like bouncing on Hopscotch steps.

One, three; skip a beat with two,
Countless heads turn as I sway.
Roll it in my finger, tuck it behind my ears,
And I let my hair play.

Dazzling after the Sunday wash,
Clutch it during work, smelling like a fresh bouquet.
Three, four; more awe for the luster,
And I let my hair play.

Neatly plaided in French style,
Chit-chatting, merry-making in a Cafe.
Four, six; more compliments for the look,
And I let my hair play.

Tie a messy bun perhaps,
Or sport a pony tail on a holiday.
Six, seven; chick yet clean,
And I let my hair play.

Audrey Hepburn’s hairdo,
Flaunting a beaded band made of crotchet.
Nine, ten; with high on style,
I let my hair play.

All moments picturesque,
Sigh! Dust, split-ends, hair fall overlay.
A big pause in the Fun Game,
They spoil my happy days.

Dry, lusterless, frizzed out hair,
All brim with spotting blissful rays.
Tapping feet at the jingle-so-cool,
Sings along with Dove Play.

One, three; skip a beat with two,
Countless heads turn as I sway.
Roll it in my finger, tuck it behind my ears,
And I let my hair play.

After my version of #HairPlay - The Hopscotch Song, listen to this peppy #DovePlay song…

  19. This one is cool! Loved these lines:

    Dry, lusterless, frizzed out hair,
    All brim with spotting blissful rays.

    Sings along with Dove Play.

  25. Hi Saru,

    I am leaving this note here because I could not find a place on your blog through which I can send you a message. My name is Sharath Komarraju, and I'm looking for willing bloggers to review my third novel, 'The Winds of Hastinapur'. It is the first book of a series in which the Mahabharat tale will be told from the points of view of all the prominent women characters. 'Winds' covers Ganga and Satyavati.

    You could look up the Flipkart page for the book and see if it interests you. If it does, and if you would like to do a review of it, can you please email me back on sharath40@gmail.com and we will take it forward from there?

    Thanks
    Sharath
