WHERE DID YOU GET THAT HAT ? (Joseph J. Sullivan) (1888) (James Rolmaz) (1901) J.C. Heffron Also recorded by : Stanley Holloway Now how I came to get this hat, 'tis very strange and funny Grandfather died and left to me his property and money And when the will it was read out, they told me straight and flat If I would have his money, I must always wear his hat CHORUS "Where did you get that hat? Where did you get that tile? Isn't it a nobby one, and just the proper style? I should like to have one Just the same as that!" Where'er I go, they shout "Hello! Where did you get that hat?" If I go to the op'ra house, in the op'ra season There's someone sure to shout at me without the slightest reason If I go to a concert hall to have a jolly spree There's someone in the party who is sure to shout at me CHORUS At twenty-one I thought I would to my sweetheart get married The people in the neighbourhood had said too long we'd tarried So off to church we went right quick, determined to get wed I had not long been in there, when the parson to me said CHORUS I once tried hard to be M.P. but failed to get elected Upon a tub I stood, round which a thousand folks collected And I had dodged the eggs and bricks (which was no easy task) When one man cried, "A question I the candidate would ask!" CHORUS When Colonel South, the millionaire, gave his last garden party I was amongst the guests who had a welcome true and hearty The Prince of Wales was also there, and my heart jumped with glee When I was told the Prince would like to have a word with me CHORUS
