You’ll Never Wear My Hat
By Sandra Stoner Mitchell
I’ve seen the way you look at me, you can’t believe your eyes,
it’s obvious you’re jealous, it’s a look you can’t disguise!
But do you think I’m worried? Do you think I give a rat?
Well, let me tell you something, there’s no way you’ll wear my hat!
You see, you’re just a silly ape, a frisky chimpanzee,
no hat would look as good on you as this one does on me!
Orangutan is what I am, a handsome one at that--
so, let me tell you once again, you’ll never wear my hat!
I know you saw the film crew come and take some shots of me,
they said I was adorable and famous I will be.
The ladies will want autographs, wherever I am at,
and they will want a photo of me wearing my posh hat!
They said, for an orangutan, I had that certain flair;
that my good looks will open doors and take me anywhere.
They said I really look the part--a real aristocrat;
that’s why forever you will never, ever, wear my hat!
