Bob Dylan’s Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat.

Have you ever heard the song?

Dylan sings:

“Well, you must tell me baby

How your head feels under somethin like that

Under your brand new

leopard skin pill box hat

Well, you look so pretty in it

Honey, can I jump on it sometime

Yes, I just wanna see if it’s

really that expensive kind”

The lyrics are humorous. The last bit makes the hat sound a lot bigger than a pillbox hat, though: “… it balances on your head, Just like a mattress balances on a bottle of wine”.

I’ve tried to imagine a really chic leopard skin hat.  However the thought of Dylan jumping up and down on a hat, testing its worth, produces a more interesting image than any leopard skin pillbox hat.
