Lyrics
I had a hat
I had a hat when I came in and 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 my hat boys, 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 and I hung it on the rack
And I'll have a hat when I go out or I'll break somebody's back
I'm a peaceful loving man, I am, and I don't want to shout
But I had a hat when I came in I'll have a hat when I go out

Casey kept on shouting, boys, they couldn't keep him quiet
Someone phoned up for the cops to come and stop the riot
Two cops rushed into the room, but Casey laid them out
He fired them through the window, they both heard Casey shout
I had a hat when I came in and I hung it on the rack
And I'll have a hat when I go out or I'll break somebody's back
I'm a peaceful loving man, I am, and I don't want to shout
But I had a hat when I came in I'll have a hat when I go out

I'm a peaceful loving man, I am, and I don't want to shout
But I had a hat when I came in I'll have a hat when I go out
Casey kept on shouting, boys, till 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 kept on shouting out

I had a hat when I came in and I hung it on the rack
And I'll have a hat when I go out or I'll break somebody's back
I'm a peaceful loving man, I am, and I don't want to shout
But I had a hat when I came in I'll have a hat when I go out

I'm a peaceful loving man, I am...
