​I Had A Hat

This song is by Dropkick Murphys and appears on the album 11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory (2017).

I had a hat when I came in
I hung it on the rack
And I'll have a hat when I go out
Or I'll break somebody's back

Casey wore his brand new hat to Murphy's wake last night
Someone stole his hat and, boy, it started up a fight
Casey smashed the furniture the radio as well
He nearly woke the corpse up when he began to yell

I had a hat when I came in
I hung it on the rack
I'll have a hat when I go out
Or I'll break somebody's back

A peaceful loving man I am
And I don't want to shout
But I had a hat when I came in
And I'll have a hat when I go out

Casey kept on shouting sure they couldn't keep him quiet
Someone phoned up for the cops to come and stop the riot
Two cops then rushed into the room, but Casey laid 'em out
As he threw them through the window, they both heard Casey shout

I had a hat when I came in
I hung it on the rack
I'll have a hat when I go out
Or I'll break somebody's back

A peaceful loving man I am
And I don't want to shout
But I had a hat when I came in
And I'll have a hat when I go out

A peaceful loving man I am
And I don't want to shout
But I had a hat when I came in
And I'll have a hat when I go out

Casey kept on fighting until one eyed Paddy Flynn
Socked him on the whiskers with a great big rolling pin
He knocked poor Casey senseless, it was an awful clout
As he lay there unconscious Casey shouted out

I had a hat when I came in
I hung it on the rack
I'll have a hat when I go out
Or I'll break somebody's back

A peaceful loving man I am
And I don't want to shout
But I had a hat when I came in
And I'll have a hat when I go out

A peaceful loving man I am
I'm a peaceful loving man, I am
I'm a peaceful loving man, I am
I'm a peaceful loving man, I am
Or I'll break somebody's back
