[Intro]
E  B7  B  
     (hold)
 E
(Bum bum-ba-da-bum-bum bum-ba-da-bum-bum bum-ba-da-bum-bum)

[Verse 1]
                    E
  ARCHIBALD    One day while he was waiting for the trolley
                         E
               He had a hat
                             E
  LARRY        My high silk hat
                   E
  ARCHIBALD    He wore it high upon his head so proudly
                            E
               A beautiful hat
  LARRY        My high silk hat
                 G#m
  ARCHIBALD    A hat, like this just makes him feel so grandly
               Now fancy this, and fancy that
                     B
               The splendor of his hat in all its majesty
  LARRY        Like a king, in a royal cap!

[Chorus]
                  B
               I feel so swell and handsome in my hat
                                                   E
               I bet that others wish they had in fact
                        G#m/D#         C#m
  BOTH         A hat as this, a hat as that,
                        Caug              C#m   E/B
               A hat so fine, a high silk hat…
                  A          B                                E
(LARRY)        Oh Mr. Art Bigotti, now what do you think of that?

    E
  (Bum bum-ba-da-bum-bum bum-ba-da-bum-bum bum-ba-da-bum-bum)

[Verse 2]
                        E
  ARCHIBALD    Now his hat was not all he wore so proudly
                          E
               I must in fact, share more than that
                     E
               For upon his lap there sat a treat so fondly
                             E
               Of chocolate this
  LARRY        And chocolate that
                  G#m
  ARCHIBALD    Deliciousness that makes him feel so dandy
                            G#m
               A chocolate bliss
  LARRY        A chocolate snack
                  B
  CHOIR        Confections such as these are more than candy
               Somewhat like life, a box of that

[Chorus 2]
                  B
  LARRY        I have my chocolate placed upon my lap
                                                   E
               I feel so good you just cannot top that
                         G#m/D#         C#m
               I have my snack, a chocolate pack,
                            Caug               C#m   E/B
               Of chocolate this and chocolate that…
                    A        B                               E
               Oh golly Mr. Nezzer, now what do you think of that?

    E                                      F
  (Bum bum-ba-da-bum-bum bum-ba-da-bum-bum bum-ba-da-bum-bum)


--- KEY CHANGE ---

[Verse 3]
                    F
  ARCHIBALD    Now time was passing and the sun grew hotter
                         F
               Upon his hat
                               F
  CHOIR        And chocolate snack
                     F
  ARCHIBALD    So beneath his hat he thought and pondered.
  LARRY        What should I do, to save my hat?
                   Am
  ARCHIBALD    He thought, and contemplated as he perspired
                           Am
               Beneath his hat
  CHOIR        Upon his lap
                   C
  ARCHIBALD    He feared his chocolate treats would soon retire
                       C
               Into a pool
  CHOIR        A chocolate vat

[Chorus 3]
                  C
  LARRY        I won’t feel grand if I take off my hat
                                                               F
               The sun's gettin' hot and my hat just might go flat.
                  Am/E             Dm
               My hat, it might go flat,
                      C#aug                  Dm   F/B
               And my sweets will melt like that…
                   A#        C                                  F
               Oh hurry Mr. Trolley before my dapperness goes flat
  F
(Bum bum-ba-da-bum-bum bum-ba-da-bum-bum bum-ba-da-bum-bum)

[Verse 4]
                     F
  ARCHIBALD    He decided to forego his looks so dashing
                            F
               To save his hat
                           F
  PEA          And little snack!
                      F
  ARCHIBALD    So he placed the treats upon the seat beside him
  NEZZER       And placed his hat on top of that
                   Am
  LARRY        Oh please (Oh please, Oh please)
                         Am
               Don’t anybody, sit close to me (sit close to me)
               Upon my hat (upon my hat)
                  C
               I ask, if all of you could be so kindly
                               C
               And just stand back
               Away from my snack!

[Final Chorus]
                   C
               A great big squash just sat upon my hat!
                                                             F
               A great big squash just squished my hat real flat!
                             Am/E             Dm
               He squashed my hat, he made it flat,
                              C#aug             Dm   F/B
               He squished my snack, oh what of that
                   A#         C                             F
               Oh tell me anybody now what do you think of that?

  CROWD
                   C
               A great big squash just sat upon his hat!
                                                                  F
               A great big enormous squash squished his hat real flat!
                              Am/E             Dm
               He squashed his hat, he made it flat,
                               C#aug              Dm
               He squished his snack, oh what of that!....

   (Trolley comes "ding ding")

               N.C
  LARRY        Oh golly…   uh… what is your name?
               N.C
  SCALLION     They’ve never given me a name.
               I've been around since show one and I still don't have a name.

               A#  C                            F
  LARRY               Now what do you think of that?
