lyrics

I just saw the nattiest guy
Looking so sharp he caught my eye
All dressed up in a suit and tie
And a brand new bowler hat
Well how ‘bout that? (Bowler hat!)

He went walking down the street
Shiny shoes on his nifty feet
But the thing that made his look complete
Was his brand new bowler hat
Just look at that (Bowler hat!)

I like his flair
I like his style
I do declare
The cut of his cloth made me smile

So quick as a flash I turned around
My day’s new purpose had been found
For I would run that guy to ground
By following his hat
His bowler hat (Bowler hat!)

Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum
Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum
That was a verse of scat
Yes they call it that.
All together now!
Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum
Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum
We all like a bit of scat
Nothing wrong with that

I want that man
He will be mine
In his bright shoes
I see my future shine

Straight into his arms I’ll fall
He and I will have a ball
Wearing nothing else at all
But his brand new bowler hat
Just look at that (bowler hat!)
I fancy that (bowler hat!)
Well how ‘bout that? (bowler hat!)
Nothing wrong with that (Bowler hat!)
