Sunshine, rain, ice, and snow.
In only an hour or two, I know
I do wish it would make up its mind.
So I can come and see you.

It’s difficult, as things go, to know just what to wear
And whether I should sport a hat to cover up my hair
I don’t want to arrive at yours, hair plastered to my skin
Beause if I looked bedraggled you might no let me in.

Shall I wear a trilby or will a bobble hat do.
A beret or a bowler or a hat like a Gnu.
What will people think of me?
More important what will you!

A trilby is too formal for that I do not care.
A bobble hat to casual and it will mess my hair.
A beanie or a rain hat will make me look a twat.
An umberella may well do, yes I can live with that.
