    VERSE 1

    The Mo-bros in London town grow that soft and bristly down
    That's the way that it grows, that's the way
    They do it for you and me, the prostate cancer charity
    That's the way that it grows, that's the way

    That's the way that it grows
    There's a hairything that's underneath your nose
    You can use a net or wax
    The idea tho is grow it to the max

    VERSE 2

    There are many different ways to grow a tache in thirty days
    That's the way that it grows, that's the way
    To grow one is not a sin, even if it's pencil thin
    That's the way that it grows, that's the way

    That's the way that it grows
    You can do it to accentuate your nose
    handlebar---- thick or thin, maybe you can even choose a mexican

    VERSE 3
    See the ones who start to fail, early in November bale
    That's the way that it grows, that's the way
    Now's the time to make amends, grow one to impress your friends
    That's the way that it grows, that's the way

    That's the way that it grows
    All the ladies love a man moustachio
    Do it now, tell your friends
    And really hope that no one condescends

    VERSE 4

    You can look like Groucho Marx or maybe that guy from Sparks
    That's the way that they mo's, that's the way
    Girlys you too can have a go, just like that Frida kahlo
    That's the way that they grow, that's the way

    That's the way that it grows
    A Hercule Poirot or a Super Mario
    Cheech and Chong, Fumanchus
    Well they say he grew one right down to his shoes

    VERSE 5

    You can grow a fine moustache, it'll help to raise some cash
    That's the way that it grows, that's the way
    You'll feel so debonaire when you adopt that facial hair
    That's the way that it grows, that's the way

    That's the way that it grows
    Come join the brotherhood of Mos
    And then when November ends
    We shall see the kinda man who (just) pretends

    (Will you miss its tender touch, did it itch you very much
    That's the way that it grows, that's the way) I thought of this line after I'd recorded it. Dang!
