Shirley Temple – An Old Straw Hat lyrics

I was born in a small town
But I'm livin' in a big town
They gave me a top hat and cane
In trade for a shady lane
Well, I'll give you back your big town
If you'll give me back a small town
Keep your top hats and canes,
Give me those prairies and plains.

If I had one wish to make
This is the wish I would choose,
I'd want An Old Straw Hat
A suit of overalls
And a worn out pair of shoes.

Just let me roam around
Laughing at Big City Blues,
With An Old Straw Hat
A suit of overalls
And a worn out pair of shoes.

Howdy Mister Brown,
Ho hum
Goin' fishin',
Hope you get a bite.

Howdy Mister Jones
Ho hum
How's about a hay ride
Saturday night?

Sing "Heigh ho,
The merrio"
What have you got,
What have you got to lose?

Get An Old Straw Hat
A suit of overalls
And a worn out musty,
Rusty, dusty,
Pair of shoes.
