Week 45 – Fedora Swing by The Glad Stones

This is one of those for-fun songs. You know, the kind that you write for no other reason than to make you feel gooood 😉

I had this idea of picking a random object and writing a song about it… and after a moment Jaye said how about a fedora hat? (Which is not surprising because the dude owns dozens of hats and caps!)

We ended up writing a swing, because it’s just so infectious. I mean, you can’t help but snap your fingers the moment the swing beat gets a-going!

And that’s how this song came about. Feel free to dance 😉

Fedora Swing

I don’t want no blue suede shoes
And those Ray-Bans ain’t no use
Won’t spend money on Armani
‘Cos all I need is you
And my fedora

Calvin Klein won’t get my dime
Ain’t drinking no Bordeaux wine
No Rolex to tell the time
‘Cos all I need is you
And my fedora

CHORUS
I adore ya, and my fedora
You put the shoo-wop ba-dup in my heart
And the bebop ba-dip in my feet
And the swing-a-ling-a-ding
In everything single thing
I do
All I need is you and my fedora

You are my coronet
The one thing I won’t forget
You chase away the blues
I stand tall with you
And my fedora

Don’t need no bling to make me sing
Don’t need to live like a king
So why don’t you just give me one thing
Actually two, all I need is you
And my fedora
