Floyd The Barber Lyrics - Nirvana

Review The Song (26)

bell on door clings, come on in
Floyd observes my hairy chin
Sit down chair don't be afraid
Steamed hot towel on my face

I was Shaved
I was Shaved
I was Shaved

Barney ties me to the chair
I can't see I'm really scared
Floyd breathes hard I hear a zip
Pee pee pressed against my lips

I'm ashamed
I'm ashamed
I'm ashamed


I sense others in the room
Opey, Aunt Bee, I presume
They take turns and cut me up
I died smothered in Andy's butt.

I was Shamed
I was Shamed
I was Shamed

Floyd the Barber | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/26/14

This is a classic tune that brings back lots of memories. The way I see it is Kurt is having a nightmare, probably after watching the Andy Griffith show before bed. How come nobody else thought of that?

Being different | Reviewer: Michael | 3/30/14

The typical average majority human has an IQ around 100. I have an IQ way above 100. I don't fit into the majority at all. I was born with a differently functioning brain. My different functioning is high intelligence.

Cobain was imagining a scenario of what if someone odd and different were to enter the world of the Andy Griffith show. going into a small town in the 1060s, or even today.

To get what this song means, you have to be odd and different with high intelligence.

Why do so many people take pleasure in trolling Nirvana | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/6/13

No one forces you to listen to or like Nirvana and you should listen to Aero Zeppelin, a good example of great guitar playing. You should also learn how to spell "Cobain" before you try to troll. Many of his songs' lyrics had ambiguous meanings. people like to criticize his guitar playing but I never seen any of these people attempt to cover Endless, Nameless or Love Buzz. They earned their way to fame but I don't think Kurt would care if you hate his band and quite frankly I don't either. I'm just curious to why must 100s of trolls like you have to constantly preach to nirvana fans to tell them how stupid and overrated they are. You should find a new hobby.

Evidence of a Untalented Group | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/19/12

This song is more evidence that Corbain and his little group of half-ass guitar players were a teeny bleep on the screen of music. Nothing to admire, little talent, horrible song writing, and just an over-publicized tent band. There are thousands of such bands in America every single day of the year. All worthless, all with a couple hundred fans.
I am still amazed how so many young people have no clue about music, what it actually takes to be considered meaningful or even a minor band. This band barely rates one-hit wonder status, despite not having an authentic popular song.

Leah is a retard | Reviewer: Kurt | 4/30/12

The point of this song is that it's controversial. It's meant to shock, meant to offend, and if you're shocked or offended then well done, Kurt Cobain is trolling you from beyond the grave. I, personally, think he's a genius and this is a very well-written song.

Andy Griffith | Reviewer: Jenny | 10/11/11

The names in this song are based off the popular sitcom from the 1960's called 'The Andy Griffith Show'. They are all characters on the show. Floyd was the barber, Andy was the sheriff, Barney his deputy, opie was his son and then there's Aunt Bea.

wow, floyd you sick fuck | Reviewer: juan | 9/11/11

Shame on Nirvana! | Reviewer: Leah | 8/26/11

This is a TERRIBLE song! TAGS is my favorite show and this is completely mocking the characters! They would never do anything like this! I can't believe Nirvana actuall wrote this song! I am definately NEVER listening to their music EVER!

Love this song | Reviewer: alisha | 5/19/11

I had heard of Nirvana and listened to a few of their songs, but I never really liked them. I thought they were weird and couldn't figure out why people liked them so much. But this was the first song that made me look at them twice. All the others I sorta dismissed. But "Floyd" made me laugh and I thought the lyrics were cool and witty. I was like "omg who comes up with this stuff?!? xD" that was over a year ago. I'm a HUGE fan of Nirvana now. And always will be til the day I die. They rule. <3 Just thought I'd share my story :)

Haha | Reviewer: Jeremy(Not) | 12/18/10

This is Funny But I Live in a Small Town And We only have one barber Shop and word Got around that the Barber was gay and i was Sitting in my car Out side The barbers and i found my Old Bleach Cd I turned It on and after i Listened To Floyd The Barber 3 Times I was Just Like Screw The Hair Cut

Epic Song Nirvana will always Be Numero Uno In My Mind

The Andy Griffith Show | Reviewer: rachel | 9/15/10

The people mentioned in this song are all based on characters from The Andy Griffith Show. Kurt Cobain wrote the song thinking, "What if all these people were mad, sadistic, killers?" The guy in the song went into the barber shop for a shave, but instead gets urinated on by Floyd, cut up by Opie and Aunt Bea, and suffocated by Andy Griffith. (thanks, Jarrett - Somewhere, Canada)

Fuck! | Reviewer: Bro | 5/6/10

damn, this song is about a boy going to the barber, then he is 1. Murdered 2. obligated to give Oral Sex to floyd (pee pee pressed agnaist my lips)
i think the boy is murdered, (they cut me up) but yeah, thats just my opinion

Kurt v/s Nrvana | Reviewer: James | 4/23/10

This song title is aimed at Pink Floyd, the other rock band which which was equally good as Nirvana ,This kinda competition is common in Show Biz ................ Anywayz like they say-" ALL IZZ WELL" . They all are good songs

Gel nails fungus | Reviewer: Aleeza | 9/21/09

Good Day. The excellence of a gift lies in its appropriateness rather than in its value.
I am from Tome and also am speaking English, give true I wrote the following sentence: "Gel on natural nails: braga and moore focused to reach the borg in the top, while reason rick berman showed a sword grinding mystery foot."

THX :p, Aleeza.

ya | Reviewer: dant | 7/24/09

This song is so creepy it's amazing. This CD is the best out of them all in my opinion. I don't like nevermind's sound cuz of the producer, but I love the lyrics just like the others. Nirvana's one of the best.
