I LEFT MY HAT IN HAITI From the film "Royal Wedding" (1951) (Music: Burton Lane / Lyrics: Alan Jay Lerner) Fred Astaire (Film Soundtrack) - 1951 Billy Eckstine - 1951 Brent Barrett - 2002 I left my hat in Haiti In some forgotten flat in Haiti I couldn't tell you how I got there I only know it was so hot there She took my hat politely And wound her arms around me tightly But I remember nothing clearly Except the flame when she came near me Her eyes had the glow of surrender And her touch it was tender And with someone as fiery as that You forget about your hat So if you go to Haiti There is a girl I know in Haiti If you can find her you'll adore her Just look around till you've found someone who has a blue-grey fedora (Orchestral Break) Her eyes had the glow of surrender And her touch it was tender And with someone as fiery as that You forget about your hat So if you go to Haiti There is a girl I know in Haiti If you can find her you'll adore her Just look around till you've found someone who has a blue-grey fedora (Transcribed from the Billy Eckstine recording by Mel Priddle - Dec 2007)
