I can't remember a year ago
I can't remember last night
Somewhere in the furniture I swear I had myself
But I lost it with the crumbs between the cracks

Take less here for granted
Take yourself away

You don't need the things you have
The silk pajamas, the leather jacket
You don't need the anorak
Your mama's socks, dad's knife collection

Think about your bedtime
Hat hair's in the past

You don't need your silver spoon
Your mixtapes and Gorilla Glue
I never was in love with you
I only loved your hat (I only, only, only loved your hat)

You'll throw out all your nice knit caps
And all that's left is the stack of other hats
You'll toss out all the baseball caps
And all that's left is a rack that's full of hats
You'll chuck out every pillbox hat
And all that's left is your Jimmy Carter hat
And all that's left is your Jimmy Carter hat
And all that's left is your Jimmy Carter hat
And all you'll wear is your Jimmy Carter hat
