I Had A Hat by Dropkick Murphys
Album : 11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory
Genre : Rock
Released : 2016

I had a hat when I came in
and I hung it on the rack,
And I’ll have a hat when I go out
or I’ll break somebody’s back

Casey wore his brand new hat
to Murphy’s wake last night,
Someone stole his hat and,
boys, it started up a fight;
Casey smashed the furniture,
the radio as well,
He nearly woke the corpse up
when he began to yell:

I had a hat when I came in
and 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 shouting, boys,
they couldn’t keep him quiet,
Someone phoned up for the cops
to come and stop the riot;
Two cops rushed into the room,
but Casey laid them out,
He fired them through the window,
they both heard Casey shout:

I had a hat when I came in
and 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 shouting, boys,
till 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 when I came in
and 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, 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!

I had a hat when I came in
and 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!
