Larry: ♪ I won't feel grand if I take off my hat. The sun's gettin' hot and my hat just might go flat. My hat, it might go flat, and my sweets will melt like that! Oh, hurry mister trolley, before my dapperness goes flat. ♪

Archibald: ♪ He decided to forgo his looks so dashing to save his hat ♪

Mr. Nezzer: ♪ And put his hat on top of that. ♪

Larry: ♪ Oh please. ♪

Chorus: ♪ Oh please, oh please! ♪

Larry: ♪ Don't anybody sit close to me, upon my hat. I ask if all of you could be so kindly and just stand back, away from my snack! ♪

(King Twistimer sits on Larry's hat and chocolates.)

♪ A great big squash just sat upon my hat! A great big squash just squished my hat real flat! He squashed my hat, he made it flat, he squished my snack, oh what of that?! Oh, tell me, anybody, now whaddya think of that? ♪
