Status Quo - All Around My Hat Lyrics




All around my hat I will wear the green willow
And all around my hat, for a twelve month and a day
And if anyone should ask me the reason why I'm wearing it
It's all for my true love who's far far away

Faretheewell cold winter, and faretheewell cold frost
Nothing have I gained, but my own true love I've lost
I'll sing and I'll be merry when occasion I do see
She's a false deluded young girl, let her go, farewell she

And all around my hat I will wear the green willow
And all around my hat, for a twelve month and a day
And if anyone should ask me the reason why I'm wearing it
It's all for my true love who's far far away

The other night she brought me a fine diamond ring
But she thought to have deprived me of a far better thing
But I being careful like lovers ought to be
She's a false deluded young girl, let her go, farewell she

And all around my hat I will wear the green willow
And all around my hat, for a twelve month and a day
And if anyone should ask me the reason why I'm wearing it
It's all for my true love who's far far away

    One of the most joyful songs ever recorded. I've listened to it dozens of times for 40 years!

  10. Daemon

    Maddy Prior, voice of an angel from before talent meant prancing about in knickers to a studio backing track, and she was mixed to the back; bloody criminal.

  11. Janusz Gierlak

    Some things never die!!!!!!!!

  12. The ghost of Spookwagen

    Top 10 anime crossovers

  15. K P

    Go Maddy!

  16. Jozef Hatert

    Francis rossi is een goede gitarist hij speelt altijd met veel onspaning vind dat media francis altijd onderwaardeer

  17. Michaël Wisse

    Wat een mooi lied en Status Quo doet het lied eer aan. Heel goed en krachtig en beheerst gespeeld. Als je zo gitaar kan spelen en zingen tegelijkertijd dan ben je "blessed""

    Jozef Hatert

    Michaël Wisse ja aleen francis rossi word altijd ondergewaardeerd

  18. Peter K.

    Maddy,sing the boys down.....;-)

  19. hrothgleas1

    Look at those happy middle-aged people kicking it! What fun!

    Brenda Verhave

  21. Michaël Wisse

    Rond uit schitterend

  22. MrMusic1950

    Quo took the wrong turn 30 years ago. This is rocking good.

  23. Isabel Alexander

    What's the story behind this video? Why was Maddy Prior o stage with Status Quo? What year?

    Sergio Pérez

    This is from Quo's 30th anniversary covers album Don't Stop ( 1996 ). It features some guest musicians like Maddy Prior, The Beach Boys or Brian May

    Johan Vanhecke

    This was also a single for Status Quo

    Manfred Massing

    Maddy Prior , one of the great woman in the Musical sceene. A heavenly voice...

    kolbenschieber

    ...which you don't nearly hear in this video. :-(

  24. sunny beth

    Wishing Maddy's mic had been turned up louder....and Francis should have let her take a verse on her own... Still, she looked like she was having a lot of fun!

    Michaël Wisse

    You are right about Maddy's  microphone. nevertheless , this version is full of energy perfectly performed by these excellent guitarist

    Nefarious Ned

    If you have Maddy there, why sing at all? She should've been lead singer on this.

    Lenny Hendricks

    @Nefarious Ned hope this is wrong, but maybe she's no longer able to handle all the verses and wanted it this way.

  25. 斉藤雅之

    日本では、amaterasuoomokami と言われたお方様です。
    Maddy, I love you

  26. Mark Lister

    Poor lass really can't dance....

    fundhund62

    +Mark Lister Your comment wasn´t that nice to begin with, buddy.

    Johan Vanhecke

    Off course Maddy can dance. She dances very well. Ralph McTell even wrote a song about her: 'When Maddy dances'

    Kevin Messer

    Who really cares about dancing ability? If you are so concerned then stick with your hip hop and R&B and leave us in peace to enjoy without your negative comments

    hrothgleas1

    Hush! She sings beautifully, and is obviously having a wonderful time!

    Tony Bonnici

    Oh for fuck sake is that all you have?
