MY SISTER MAMIE'S HAT.

Words and Music by Geo. Southgate.
You should see my sister's hat, it's a dandy, you can bet;
A rooster's wing is on the side, red streamers down the back;
'Tis decked with all the flowers of spring; it makes a splendid show;
On the top of all there is a blue-jay and a crow.
If you see if, you will know it; it's a dandy, you can bet;
Every one is talking of my sister Mamie's hat.
She went to the theatre; as she walked to her seat,
The ladies all stood up to look, the men stood on the seats;
The singer singing of the flowers her part she did forget;
Quite amazed, she fixed her gaze on sister Mamie's hat.- Chorus.
Sunday she went off to church; as she walked up the aisle.
The pastor let his book fall, the young folks there did smile;
His sermon he could not complete; he'd lost the text, in fact;
Every eye was fixed upon my sister Mamie's hat.- Chorus.
