Golden Hat
Music by The Steady Swagger
Lyrics by PierYves Décoste & Mathieu Lacombe

Excuse me sir…
Have you seen my hat?
I’m looking for my hat
-What color is your hat?
Oh it’s a golden hat! It has stripes from front to back, it’s a fine looking hat
And no one else in the world has a hat just like that

When I first laid my eyes on this pretty piece of gold I felt shivers inside, I could tell it had a soul
And since then I’ve been wearing it every single day
But the wind blew and it flew away and hatless I stayed

Oh I’ve fallen to the ground before but never felt this sore
My hat it is gone, have I done something wrong?
I spend my days obsessing, I just have to get it back
The only thing I can think about is my golden hat

Have you seen my hat?
-What’s that?!
I’m looking for my hat
-Oh no I have not seen your hat
I would murder for my hat!
Will I have to face the fact that I may never get it back?
Is someone else in the world wearing my hat?

I remember the days when it covered me from rain
It gave me self-esteem, comfort and security
-Well I do believe all that you say, I wear my hat every day!
My hat?
-My hat!
Your hat?
-This hat is not your golden hat!

Have you seen my hat?
-Good sir you’re wearing a hat!
You see this hat, it’s not my hat, I stole this ugly hat!
