This song is sometimes sung as "My tall silk hat" or "My big tall hat" instead of "My Boy Scout hat". It's sung to the tune of the Italian song, "Funiculi, Funicula".

Notes

*Alternate, "Huh!"

This version below is a Camp Song:

My Tall Silk Hat

One day I took a ride upon a subway.
My tall silk hat, my tall silk hat.
I laid it down upon the seat beside me.
My tall silk hat, my tall silk hat.
A big fat lady came and sat upon it!
My small silk hat, my small silk hat!
A big fat lady came and sat upon it!
My small silk hat, it looked like that!
Christopher Columbo, what do you think of that?
A big fat lady sat upon my hat.
My hat she broke and that's no joke.
My hat she broke and that's no joke.
Christopher Columbo, what do you think of that? Huh?
