An Old Straw Hat - Shirley Temple Song Lyrics

Shirley Temple Songs

Shirley Temple was known as much for her songs as she was for her tap dancing. I have created a list of Shirley's most famous songs, and the lyrics. If you have the lyrics to a song that I don't currently have, please email it to me so that I can add them to the website.

Movie: Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm
Year: 1938
Song Name: An Old Straw Hat
Copyright 1938, Leo Feist Inc., N.Y.
Words and music by Mac Gordon and Harry Revel

I was born in a small town
But I'm livin' in a big town
They gave me a top hat and cane
In trade for a shady lane
Well, I'll give you back your big town
If you'll give me back a small town
Keep your top hats and canes,
Give me those prairies and plains.

If I had one wish to make
this is the wish I would choose,
I'd want An Old Straw Hat
a suit of overalls
and a worn out pair of shoes.

Just let me roam around
laughing at Big City Blues,
With An Old Straw Hat
a suit of overalls
and a worn out pair of shoes.

Howdy Mister Brown,
ho hum
goin' fishin',
hope you get a bite.

Howdy Mister Jones
ho hum
how's about a hay ride
Saturday night?

Sing "Heigh ho,
the merrio"
What have you got,
What have you got to lose?

Get An Old Straw Hat
a suit of overalls
and a worn out musty,
rusty, dusty,
pair of shoes.
