Last updated: 06/20/2013 12:37:20 PM

Well, I see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat
Yes, I see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat
Well, you must tell me, baby
How your head feels under somethin' like that
Under your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.

Well, you look so pretty in it
Honey, can I jump on it sometime ?
Yes, I just wanna see
If it's really that expensive kind
You know it balances on your head
Just like a mattress balances
On a bottle of wine
Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.

Well, if you wanna see the sun rise
Honey, I know where
We'll go out and see it sometime
We'll both just sit there and stare
Me with my belt
Wrapped around my head
And you just sittin' there
In you brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.

Well, I asked the doctor if I could see you
It's bad for your health, he said
Yes, I disobeyed his orders
I came to see you
But I found him there instead
You know, I don't mind him cheatin' on me
But I sure wish he'd take that off his head
Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.

Well, I see you got a new boyfriend
You know, I never seen him before
Well, I saw him
Makin' love to you
You forgot to close the garage door
You might think he loves you for your money
But I know what he really loves you for
It's your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.

Leopard Skin Pill Box Hat | Reviewer: Glory Cloud Revelation | 6/20/13

Not very many people could express sarcasm as well as this. It seems to me, that he is being sarcastic because he is wanting some attention from this woman, and she has been too self-centered. sitting there like a queen on her throne, concerned more about how she looks than in being close to him.
It's a nice song, but if you want my honest opinion, I would like it better if verses 2,3 & 4 of the last stanza were eliminated. It would be in better taste. And to help balance it out with a feminine twist, if he wants to, I wrote the following (Johnny Cash & June Carter would have made a good team in singing this together, I loved "Jackson" that they dueted)

Gonna write this song, to keep my heart where it belongs,
Safe and sound on solid ground, with love, joy, and peace all around...
That's where I feel the most at home, when the Holy Spirit comes, I don't feel alone.

Still, I'm expectin' something else to be, that Heavenly Father promised me;
It has something to do with a song, romantically,
I heard the whipper will, and I miss him, still.

Gonna write a love song to make you smile again,
Gonna try to make it sound
Like heaven's comin' down with a friend.

It seems like almost every day, men come walkin' & talkin' my way;
They try to hang around for my attention,
And I wonder, sometimes, what's their intention?

Is it because they think I look pretty? or infatuation?
Oh, I know what it is, it's none of that...
It must be my "new leopard skin pill box hat!"
