lyrics

a girl in a hat like that can be whatever she wants,
she can float untied on the same breeze
blowing those harlequin plumes

she's her own mistress, in her wild hat,
she's the queen of Victoria Park
from bandstand to ice-cream van
but she's not there, nor here nor there, or anywhere
and will she ever, ever pay her bill?

a girl in a hat like that can be whatever she pleases
and float untied on the same breeze
blowing those harlequin plumes

she's gone, lost in the streets,
how many times has she changed her name?
she knows exactly what she wants
another dream, another town, another chance
another hook to hang that sodding hat

a girl in a hat like that can be whatever she wants,
she can float untied on the same breeze
blowing those harlequin plumes

she's her own mistress, in her wild hat,
she's the queen of Victoria Park
from bandstand to ice-cream van
but she's not there, nor here nor there, or anywhere
and will she ever, ever pay her bill?

a girl in a hat like that laughs her socks off
as she drives you mad
and she drives you mad
she pulls the stringsthat make you dance

without a back, a backward glance, at the Empire
a girl like that will break you in half as she goes Dutch
a girl like that, a girl like that, a girl like that...

how many times has she changed her name?
how many times has she changed her keys?
how many hats has she had like that?
who knows?

about

Morningblind Barcelona, Spain

Morningblind: a collaboration between Catalan singer-songwriter Sandra Bossy Retti and British writer Richard Hayden; the result is an EP drawing on a wide range of influences: folk, jazz, classical, and rock. This is adult life in song; there’s not much escapism; it’s more about trying to look at things head-on and from that create something beautiful, affecting, genuine and eminently listenable. ... more
