Donna

Album: Hair Soundtrack (1967)
  • songfacts ®
  • Like the rest of the songs in Hair, "Donna" has lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni, music by Galt MacDermot.

    Yes, this is a song about a girl named Donna, and also a pun on "Madonna" - no, not her, because she was not even a teenager when this musical was written, although this Donna was a tattooed 16 year old virgin, a real one apparently, rather than just like one. >>
