Well i see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat
Well i see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat
Well you must tell me baby how your head feels under something 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 an' see it sometime, we'll both just sit there an' stare
Me with my belt wrapped around my head an' you just sittin' there
In your 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, no i never seen him before
Well i saw you makin' love with him, 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  up

cd imgTHE BOOTLEG SERIES Vol. 7 NO DIRECTION HOME

  Blonde on Blonde session 4, Columbia Studio A, NYC - 25.jan.1966, take 1  

Well i see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat
Well i see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat
Well tell now me baby, how your head feel under that
Under your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.

Well you wear it so pretty, honey can i jump on it sometime
Well you wear it so pretty, can i jump on it sometime
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, honey i know where
Mm, if you wanna see the sun, we'll just sit there an' stare
Me with my belt wrapped around my head an' you just sittin' there
In your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.

Well i asked the doctor could i see you, well he said, it was bad for my health, he said
Yes i disobeyed his orders, i came to see you an' found him there instead
Well i don't mind he's cheatin', but how come he was wearin' on his head
Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.

Well i see you got a new boyfriend, well i don't wanna see him no more
Well i saw you makin' love with him, you forgot to close the garage door
You might think he loves you for your money but, it ain't true, i know what he really loves you for
Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.

Well i don't drink whisky, no i don't drink gin
But i'm so dirty, honey i've been workin' all day in a coal bin
Right now i wanna see you, honey will you let me in
Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.

Well can i be your chauffeur, honey can i be your chauffeur
Well you can ride with me, honey i'll be a chauffeur
Just as long as you stay in the car, if you get out and start to walk you just might topple over
In your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.  up

Two slightly different lyrics 

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 now me, baby, how your head feels under something like that
Under your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.

Well you wear it so pretty, honey can i jump on it sometime
Well [ |you look so pretty in it], i just wanna see if it's [really |] the 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 an' see it sometime, we both sit there an' stare
[Me with my belt wrapped around my head an' you just sittin' there
  | You with my belt wrapped around your head an' me just sittin' there]
In your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.

I asked the doctor if i could see you, ''It's bad for your health'', he said
Well i disobeyed his orders, i went 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.

Yes i see you got a new boyfriend, no i never seen him before
I saw you makin' love with him, you forgot to close the garage door
You might think he loves you for your money but [you're wrong, |] i know what he really loves you for
It's your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.  up
