I... think this pretty much explains itself. Have you SEEN this man's hat?

lyrics

I went to the theatre for Sherlock Holmes and my heart nearly skipped a beat D (DaddG D) G D
Doctor Watson came on - I looked him up and down - but I didn't spend very long on his feet D (DaddG D) A Bb A

Oh you may swoon for the handsome faces, but baby they leave me flat G Gsus4 G D
I've set my aim just a little bit higher - I'm in love with Watson's hat D (DaddG D) G A7 D
Oh yes I'm in love with his bowler hat G A7 D

I'm hoping that Watson & Holmes hook up, though it ain't what Conan Doyle intended D (DaddG D) G D
'Cause if those pretty boys take their weskits off, that beautiful hat will be left unattended D (DaddG D) A Bb A

Oh you may swoon for the handsome faces, but baby they leave me flat G Gsus4 G D
I've set my aim just a little bit higher - I'm in love with Watson's hat D (DaddG D) G A7 D
Oh yes I'm in love with his bowler hat G A7 D

Yeah I'm bowled-over by that brown bowler - G Gsus4 G
It's a topper that can't be topped D
If you'd be a good chap and just... tip your cap... G Gsus4
Baby my heart would just stop A Bb A

I don't need to know your income, dear, or examine your social stature D (DaddG D) G D
If you want my love just let know the name of your haberdasher D (DaddG D) A Bb A

Oh you may swoon for the handsome faces, but baby they leave me flat G Gsus4 G D
I've set my aim just a little bit higher - I'm in love with Watson's hat D (DaddG D) G A7 D
Oh yes I'm in love with his bowler hat G A7 D
That's right, I'm in love with a bowler hat G A7 D
