I SCRATCH MY HAT

(Written by Eddie Mugavero-Sung by Billy Yates)
Written for every "Hat Act" in Nashville. It's like their hats are extensions of their bodies. Sometimes I'll watch a video and wonder if that guy is bald, because I've never, ever, seen his head. haha
I SCRATCH MY HAT

NOW LOVE AIN'T ROCKET SCIENCE
SO WHAT'S TO FIGURE OUT
YOU'RE EITHER IN IT OR YOU AIN'T
THERE SHOULDN'T BE NO DOUBT
SO WHY AM I SO BAFFLED
EACH TIME LOVE COMES MY WAY
MY HAT'S OFF TO THE ONE WHO KNOWS
BUT TIL THAT DAY

I SCRATCH MY HAT AND WONDER ABOUT LOVE
THE SPELL IT PUTS ME UNDER
NEVER KNOWING WHICH END IS UP
AND I GET MORE AND MORE CONFUSED THE OLDER I GET
AND I SCRATCH MY HAT AND WONDER 'CAUSE
IT'S OVER MY HEAD

I'VE HAD IT UP TO HERE WITH LOVE
I'M FILLED UP TO THE BRIM
YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE IT COMES FROM
AND YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE IT'S BEEN
IT SHOWS UP UNIVNVITED
AND IT DON'T KNOW WHEN TO LEAVE
NOW I AIN'T SURE LOVE CONQUERS ALL
BUT IT SURE BEATS ME
