Narrator: (talks) And now it is time for Silly Songs with Larry, the part of the show, where Larry comes out and sings a silly song.
Archibald: Stop! Don't even think about it. As if Omlet wasn't bad enough, so, Strawberry!
Strawberry: Coming!
Narrator: Uhh... Testing, 1, 2, 3, Ahem. And now it is time for Classy Songs with Larry, the part of the-
Archibald: Oh, Come On, Mister! You said, 'Classic Songs' actually. Strawberry, You need to erase 'y' and write 'ic' on it!
Strawberry: Oops, Sorry.
Narrator: OK, Thanks, Ahem. And now it is time for Classic Songs with Larry, the part of the show where Larry comes out and sings a classic song. So we'll now be performing Classic Songs with Larry.
Archibald: Larry's High Silk Hat. (sings) One day while he was waiting for a trolley, he had a hat.
Larry: A high silk hat.
Choir: He wore it high upon his head so proudly, a beautiful hat.
Larry: My high silk hat.
Archibald: A hat like this just makes him feel so dandy, so fancy this,
A fancy hat. The splendor of his hat in all it's majesty, like a king...
Larry:... In a royal cap! I'm always so swell and handsome with my hat,
I bet that others wish they had in fact...
Larry and Archibald: A hat as this, a hat as that, a hat so fine, a high silk
Hat! Oh, ninja, Jay Lightning, now what do you think of that?
Jay: (talks) AAAAHHHH!
Choir: (sings) When his hat is not the fall he wore so proudly, we must in fact...
Archibald:... share more than that. For upon his lap there sat a treat so fondly, a beautiful snack.
Larry: My chocolate's lapped.
Archibald: Deliciousness that makes him feel so grandly, so chocolate this...
Larry:... a chocolate snack.
Choir: Confections such as these are more than candy, somewhat like buy...
Larry:... a box of that! I have my chocolate placed upon my lap. I feel so good, you just cannot get that.
Larry and Archibald: We have the box, a chocolate pack, of chocolate this a chocolate snack! Oh, golly, Ichabeezer, now what do you think of that!
Ichabeezer: (talks) Well, that chocolate is kind of yucky, which means, bad. Yep.
Choir: (sings) Now time was passing and some stars fell under, upon his hat.
Jay: Even, his, chocolate snack?
Archibald: And now beneath his hat he thought and pondered...
Larry:... What should we do, to save my hat?
Jay: I thought and contemplated as you perspired, beneath your hat, upon your lap.
Larry: I feared my chocolate treats would soon retire, into a pool, my chocolate've flat!
Larry: I won't feel grand if I take off my hat. The stars are dropping fast and my hat just might go flat. My hat, it might go flat, and my snack
Will melt like that...
Larry: Oh hurry Mr. Trolley before my dapperness goes flat!
Archibald: He decided to forego his looks so dashing, to save his hat...
Jean Claude: and chocolate snack.
Archibald: So he placed the treats upon the seat beside him...
Nezzer: and put his hat on top of that.
Larry: Oh please!
Choir: Oh please, oh please!
Larry: Don't anybody sit close to me, upon my hat. I ask, if all of you
Could be so kindly, and just stay back, away from my snack!
A great big squash just sat upon my hat! A great big squash just squished
My hat go flat. He squashed my hat, he made it flat, he squished my
Snack, oh what of that! Oh tell me anybody, now what do you think of that
Choir: A great big squash just sat upon his hat. A great big enormous
Squash squished his hat go flat. He squashed his hat, he made it flat, he
Squished his snack, oh what of that?
Larry: Oh golly, uh... What is your name?
Scallion #1: They've never given me a name. I have been around since show
One and I still don't have a name.
Larry & Choir: Now what do you think of that?
