Buzz cuts for six-year-olds:  one buck
Shoe shines for grown-ups:  fifty cents
Two white barbers:  Wait 'til one's through
Shoeshine Shoo:  first colored man I ever knew
Fifty years:  I don't know where they went
Buzz cuts for grown-ups:  sixteen bucks*
Lysoled countertops:  Where's that witch-hazel scent?
Shoeshine Shoo:  What ever happened to you?
