This song is by Webb Wilder and appears on the album It Came From Nashville (1986).

Samson And Delilah's Beauty Shop

(Webb speaks)
"There is a sheet of paper being circulated in the room which bears a terrific lie.
At no time ever was this aggregation known as the Beatnicks. We have the greatest
Of admiration for Maynard G. Crebbs and his kind. However, we were the BeatNECKS.
We got tired of pointing to our neck, you can't do it in an add because they always
Misspell it and you go around with a news paper like this all day. So, now we are and
I am Webb Wilder. The names Wilder, Webb Wilder. And for those beatnicks in the crowd
More power to ya. And for those beatNECKS in the crowd... maybe you don't know what a
Beatneck is? Maybe a little boy, possessed of the mind of a full grown man bought a
Beatles record in a Gibson's discount center in Hattiesburg, Ms and JUST MAYBE, He
Grew up to be Webb Wilder."
