Song Lyric Sunday: Headgear – ‘You Can Leave Your Hat On’

This week the sartorial theme for Song Lyric Sunday goes straight to the top, with songs about headgear.

My first thought was David Bowie’s ‘Queen Bitch’ and that ‘bippity boppity hat’. Unfortunately, it had also been my first thought about three years ago for another prompt.

So instead, here’s something naught but niiiice….

Baby, take off your coat…real slow
Baby, take off your shoes…here, I’ll take your shoes
Baby, take off your dress
Yes, yes, yes
You can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on

Go on over there and turn on the light…no, all the lights
Now come back here and stand on this chair…that’s right
Raise your arms up in to the air…shake ’em
You give me a reason to live
You give me a reason to live
You give me a reason to live

Suspicious minds are talking
Trying to tear us apart
They say that my love is wrong
They don’t know what love is
They don’t know what love is
They don’t know what love is
They don’t know what love is
I know what love is
