My Hat, It Has Three Corners
(American Action Song)

Advertisement

This is often sung at scout jamborees. It's fun, but it takes some practice!

My Hat, It Has Three Corners
Action Song

My hat, it has three corners,
Three corners has my hat,
And had it not three corners,
It would not be my hat.

Notes

Hillary E. wrote: "I originally learned 'My Hat it Has Three Corners' in German."
