Big Man's Hat

I used to wear a big man's hat
In a big man's world
You got to have a big man's hat
In a big man's world

But I was just a child then, I acted like a boy
I bought my shirts at the Veterans Thrift
I wore myself a fur-lined motorcycle jacket
I had to have peg-legged jeans, I was one bad cat
And don't you forget, I wore a big man's hat
Oh, yes, a big man's hat

I learned myself one good lick
From a one lick man, oh, yes
You got to know one good lick
To play in a one lick band
But I was just a child then
I didn't know a thing, no, no, no
I thought I had to talk like a fool
I thought I had to drink like a goldfish
I thought I had to lie like a dog, I was one sick cat
Was all of this because I wore a big man's hat?
A big man's hat

I used to have a big man's thoughts
In a young man's world
You got to have big man's thoughts
To make a big man's girl
And when I finally made that girl
She did not have a clue
That I would break her like a matchstick

That I could turn young love to the third world war
I'd sit in the seat where the devil had sat
That I could turn young love to the third world war
I'd sit in the seat where the devil had sat

That I could turn young love to the third world war
I'd sit in the seat where the devil had sat
That I could turn young love to the third world war
I'd sit in the seat where the devil had sat

Was all of this because
Was all of this because
Was all of this because
All of this because
I wore a big man's hat?
Big man's hat

Is there a rhyme and a reason
A cause and effect?
Was all of this directly related to the fact
I wore a big man's hat?
Is there a rhyme and a reason?
A cause and effect?
Was all of this directly related to the fact
I wore a big man's hat?
I wore, I wore, I wore a big man's hat
I wore, I wore, I wore a big man's hat

I wore a big man's hat
I wore a big man's hat
I wore a big man's hat

Up upon my head I wore it, mm-hmm
Up upon my head it sat
Up upon my head I wore it
I wore a big man's hat, that's right

Up upon my head I wore it, oh, yeah
Up upon my head it sat, mm-hmm
Up upon my head I wore it
I wore a big man's hat
Did you know it, did you know it
Did you know it

Up upon my head I wore it, oh, yes, I did
Up upon my head it sat, mm-hmm
Up upon my head I wore it
I wore a big man's hat

[I wore, I wore
I wore a big man's hat
[I wore, I wore
I wore a big man's hat, mm-hmm
[I wore, I wore
I wore a big man's hat
[I wore, I wore
[Big man's hat]
