The Golden Apple

Outrageous Hat

Lyrics & Melody by Mike Crook

There are days when breathing is hard
And your foot fall will get you nowhere
And the wanting of man is left wanting a plan
Of high things too lofty to bare

So bring out your metal and fibre,
Forge it and weave it between
The shadow of night and the blazing sun light
Will crown this nightmare a dream

CHORUS
Wear your boots as an anchor,
Wear your shirt like a sail
Above all that, wear a fine hat X2
Wear a fine hat, outrageous hat

Eat and food has not filled me,
My spirit has asked me for more
I scatter the bowls from the table and
The rats have taken the floor

So i’ll leave for a fool hardy mission
With you and some others to cast
This day is to waste on good wine by the case and
Standing as tall as a mast

Burn your tie, don’t ask why,
Go be bold, wear fancy clothes

CHORUS

Kick off the fare from the table and
Grin like a head on a spike
My peak and my feather will start an endeavour
With fools and wise men alike

Burn your tie, don’t ask why,
Go be bold, wear fancy clothes X2

CHORUS

Burn your tie, don’t ask why,
Go be bold, wear fancy clothes
