lyrics

We're the house of a million (house of a million)
House of a million parts!

---

I was a lad in an English manor,
Sweeping chimneys, hammering hammers
I learned a lot from my old school master,
Some addition, some subtraction

But I had half a crown to my name, and I was a growin' boy
Went to a factory east of York, and there I began my work
Yes, there I began my work.

After a while I noticed something,
hands were shaking, chest was thumping
Next thing I knew, I awoke in Bedlam
Tried escaping through the transom...

But that was very many years ago,
And I am a dyin' man
Hatless now for a century,
But I'm doing the best I can...

So have you got another hat for me?
Cause my collection was once seventy
And every milliner in the world agrees
That you can't live in these brutalities

So have you got another hat for me?
I got my first when I was seventeen years old
And I wish that I had grown
With the hats I had not thrown (into the trash)

Have you got another hat for me?
I'd turn the pages of a magazine,
Or search the chairs up in the mezzanine,
Or poke my head into a guillotine

Cause if you had another hat for me
I'd welcome you into my family,
Read you the paper over toast and tea,
We'd scrimp and cherish every memory...

So have you got another hat for me?
