PaRappa The Rapper Wiki

Hair Scare is the fifth song of PaRappa the Rapper 2, that plays in the fifth stage, "You Don't Want Her To Go Through This, Do You?!"

Story

After training with Instructor Moosesha, Parappa and PJ get their first mission, which is at the Parappa Town barber shop. As they get there, they witness many of the townsfolk possessing large afros, and they go into the shop only to find Hairdresser Octopus. The octopus will undo his work only if Parappa can successfully follow or outdo his hairdressing rap.

Lyrics

Introducing, the new flava!
Cutting hair can be fabulous
So don't just stand there!
Come inside, have a seat and relax,
I promise you, everything will be alright
OK baby let's go We're gonna do it like this
Snip snip
Trim trim
Cut cut
Shave shave
Snip trim cut
Shave cut snip
Trim shave dye
Cut snip trim
Snip snip
Trim trim
Cut cut
Shave shave
Snip trim cut
Shave cut snip
Trim shave dye
Cut snip trim
Simple simple just like that,
I do braids and afros, crew cuts and more
Always energetic, smooth with a kick
Listen to the music and keep up the mix!
Snip snip snip snip snip
Cut cut cut cut cut
Trim trim trim trim trim
Shave shave shave
Cut the cut, snip the snip
Trim the trim, shave the shave
Trim the cut, shave the snip
Cut the snip, shave the trim
Snip snip snip snip snip
Cut cut cut cut cut
Trim trim trim trim trim
Shave shave shave
Cut the cut, snip the snip
Trim the trim, shave the shave
Trim the cut, shave the snip
Cut the snip, shave the trim
You see now, I don't have time to lose
My customers keep coming in and out
Many demands for people alike
I know what cutting hair's all about
Trim trim cut, cut trim trim
Perm perm cut, cut perm perm
Cut cut perm, perm cut cut
Snip snip dye, dye snip snip
Dye dye snip, snip cut cut
Trim trim dye, dye snip snip
Trim trim cut, cut trim trim
Perm perm cut, cut perm perm
Cut cut perm, perm cut cut
Snip snip dye, dye snip snip
Dye dye snip, snip cut cut
Trim trim dye, dye snip snip
Give it my best shot, to keep myself red hot
'Cause I'm the one to bring out the original
Flava flava, for my people people
Come on kids, last shot for the final
With the shampoo, I'll give it to you all
Rinse ya good, I made you look tall
Dry your hair, blow up and down
Come on son, it's time to get down
Keep the line, keep the line moving
I'm non stop, my body's just groovin
Cut your hair, flat back and up front
Give you a perm now, and we're done
With the shampoo, I'll give it to you all
Rinse ya good, I made you look tall
Dry your hair, blow up and down
Come on son, it's time to get down
Keep the line, keep the line moving
I'm non stop, my body's just groovin
Cut your hair, flat back and up front
Give you a perm now, and we're done

End of level dialogue

Good
Hairdresser Octopus: Hey, who did all of this? That's pretty good.
Parappa: You did. You told me to.

Cool
Hairdresser Octopus: Woh, did you fix everyone's hair? I'm going to hire you right now.
Parappa: Well, I'm not old enough.

Bad/Awful
Hairdresser Octopus: Hey! Take that stupid hat off. What does it look like in there?
Parappa: Aah, I'm not sure myself.

Cool Entrance
Hairdresser Octopus: Caramba! I hate it when there's a lot of hair on the floor. Here, I'll go clean up.

Cool Fail
Hairdresser Octopus: Phew! Feels good when the floor is clean doesn't it? Let's groove.

Mode Differences

Getting Worse: Hairdresser Octopus does the same animation during the failure of the stage, which is him angrily frowning and throwing his arms down. He says "just take the hat off." The music is heard being rewound and going down into a lower key.

Getting Better!: Hairdresser Octopus will smile with his arms out. He says "this will be good." The music is heard being started up now.

Cool: This time, all the people have their regular hair back with Parappa working with Lammy's hair. If he goes down back to Good, him and Lammy will frown at Hairdresser Octopus when he comes back.

Bad: The song becomes similar to Good's, but at a lower pitch. The keyboard now only plays one note at a time, and a reversed synth is heard, which makes the music sound wrong. the background is yellow instead of blue. a Rainbow borders the screen. In the remastered version, the rainbow that borders the screen are removed.

Awful: The music sounds nothing like the other ones and, otherwise, quite creepy. The reversed synth ruins the tempo of the music, the background becomes red from yellow, and darkness fills the whole stage.

Trivia

  • If a line is performed poorly, Katy Kat will shake her head side-to-side in disappointment or in an annoyed way. (After the line ‘Come on son it’s time to get down!’where the walls go down, if a line is performed poorly the walls appear to be still up.)
  • If a line is performed poorly on COOL mode, Hairdresser Octopus is seen sweeping the floor.
  • Even though Parappa's quest is to become a man, he self-admits that he's not old enough to be hired as a hair stylist when the stage is completed in COOL mode.
  • When COOL mode is achieved, Hairdresser Octopus says "Caramba!" at the beginning. In Portuguese, 'Caramba' translates to 'damn it' (Note from a person who knows Portuguese: Actually, Caramba, in this part, is expressing surprise, but it CAN be "Damn it", but this is a rare occasion)
  • In the NA version of the game, if the subtitles are turned on, there is a message saying "Kids, don't try this at home!" under the lyrics during the first lesson of the song.
