The Brandos – Pass The Hat lyrics

Pass the hat, friend
If you'd be so kind, friend
Take a while
For a smile and a song
Leave your worries
Leave your hurry
In a while you're gonna find
You can't help but sing along

Take a look 'round
At this hard town
All you see
People walking alone
Weary places
Saddened faces
Got to bring these voices
Together in a song

Pass the hat
You've got to live before you die
Pass the hat
Got to laugh more than you cry
Pass the hat
I'll give you all I've got to give
Pass the hat, pass the hat
Oh, yeah

Pass the hat, friend
We're all the same, friend
You and me
And the man next to you
'Been through bad times
'Been through sad times
Just the same, here's a song
Just to help to get us through

Take a look down
The streets of this town
Like a veil
There's a gloom hangin' down
But even still, friends
If you've got the will, friends
We can raise our voices
Together all around

Pass the hat, friend
If you'd be so kind, friend
Soon enough
There's a grave for us all
But we're alive, friends
You and I, friends
We can raise our voices
There's still time before the fall
