newbie myHead question

I have

m = {{a, b}, {a, b}, {a, b}}

When I apply Transpose to it, I will have


{{a, a, a}, {b, b, b}}

The FullForm of it is

List[List[a, a, a], List[b, b, b]]

Now, if I do

n = Apply[myHead, m]

I get

myHead[{a, b}, {a, b}, {a, b}]

If I apply Transpose to it, I get


Transpose[myHead[{a, b}, {a, b}, {a, b}]]

The FullForm of it

Transpose[myHead[List[a, b], List[a, b], List[a, b]]]

which is not that I need.  I need



myHead[List[a, a, a], List[b, b, b]]

What am I missing ?  What should I do to get myHead[{a,a,a},{b,b,b}] ?

Thanks ahead,

close to unclear perl code
