The Headless Horseman’s Hattery
has hats of every kind.
They’ve just the hat you want
no matter what you have in mind.

They’ve baseball caps and bonnets.
They’ve sombreros and berets.
They’ve hats to wear with uniforms
and hats for holidays.

They’ve top hats made of Asian silk,
and fezzes made of felt,
and hats of wool, and hats of straw,
and hats of beaver pelt.

They welcome cash and credit cards.
They’ll gladly take a check.
And all their hats are sure to fit
on any headless neck.
