Frank Maher Lyr Req: My Old Skillara Hat (19) Lyr Add: MY AULD SKILLARA HAT 30 Nov 04


Now Patsy Byrne may brag about the hat his father wore.
No doubt it was a gay cobeen in the merry days of yore,
But now it's a little bit out of date and let me tell you that
It couldn't hold a candle to me auld skillara hat.

CHORUS: Sure 'twas worn by me father at the patterns and the fairs,
Where all the boys and pretty girls were sure to be all there.
It was built a hundred years ago and it's little a worse be that,
For a regular lady dazzler is me auld skillara hat.

Walking down the street the other night the royal house to see,
Sure all the boys from Golden Haith kept shoutin' after me:
"There goes the Duke of Charrolberg and he's an aristocrat!"
For the boys they didn't know me with me auld skillara hat. CHORUS

I met the king of England a week ago today.
He shook me warmly by the hand and he asked me home to tay.
"Well then Pat," says he, "sure I'm glad to see you're looking so fine and fat,"
And all the time he kept looking at me auld skillara hat. CHORUS
