Give Me Back My Hat

Give me back my hat
‘Cause my head is gettin’ cold
You better give me back my hat
‘Cause my head is gettin’ cold
You said, “Don’t tell the teacher!”
But I already told

We were out at recess
One cold winters day
You took my hat, and just like that
You laughed and ran away

You better give me back my hat
‘Cause my head is gettin’ cold
You said, “Don’t tell the teacher!”
Oh, but I already told

I chased you around the monkey bars
I chased you past the swings
I got icicles forming in my hair
And my ears are startin’ to sting

You better give me back my hat
‘Cause my head is gettin’ cold
You said, “Don’t tell the teacher!”
Oh, but I already told

You better give me back my hat
‘Cause my head is gettin’ cold
You said, “Don’t tell the teacher!”
Oh, but I already told

Teacher blew the whistle
Then she called your name
She said, “You come over here right now!
“This is not a game!

“Now, give this young man back his hat
“And say you’re sorry, too
“Oh, and one more thing, for the rest of the week
“There’s no recess for you!”

She made you give me back my hat
‘Cause my head was gettin’ cold
You said, “Don’t tell the teacher!”
Oh, but I already told
