Have you ever heard the song?
“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.
