I Had A Hat When I Came In

Irish Song Lyrics - I Had A Hat When I Came InAuthor: traditional

Casey wore his brand new hat to Murphy's wake last night Someone stole his hat and, bo, it started up a fight Casey smashed the furniture the radio as well He nearly woke the corpse up as he began to yell CHORUS I had a hat when I came in I hung it on the rack and I'll have a hat when I go out or I'll break somebody's back I'm a peaceful loving man I am, and I don't want to shout, BUT I had a hat when I came in, and I'll have a hat when I go out! Casey kept on fighting sure they couldn't keep him quiet Someone phoned up for the cops to come and stop the riot Two cops then rushed into the room, but Casey laid them out As he threw them through the window, they both heard Casey shout I had a hat... Casey kept on fighting until one eyed Paddy Flynn Socked him on the whiskers with a great big rolling pin He knocked poor Casey senseless, it was an awful clout As he lay there unconscious Casey kept on shouting out I had a hat..
