Baby, take off your coat…real slow
Baby, take off your shoes…here, I’ll take your shoes
Baby, take off your dress
Yes, yes, yes
You can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on
Go on over there and turn on the light…no, all the lights
Now come back here and stand on this chair…that’s right
Raise your arms up in to the air…shake ’em
You give me a reason to live
You give me a reason to live
You give me a reason to live
Suspicious minds are talking
Trying to tear us apart
They say that my love is wrong
They don’t know what love is
They don’t know what love is
They don’t know what love is
They don’t know what love is
I know what love is

In context:
Queen Victoria visited a hospital once and stopped at a bed with a dark haired woman with a new-born baby with fiery red hair in her arms. “My guess is, the father is a redhead” the Queen  said amiably and the woman in the bed answered “I don’t know. He had his hat on.”

You can leave your hat on –

Clearly, New York City in the 19th century was a veritable hotbed of invention with reference to men’s hats: Stephen Martine of Staten Island had perfected the Sunshade Hat, and there was the East Williamsburgh Head Muff as well. A third, and very worthy, contender for Most Innovative Men’s Headgear in Victorian New York is shown at the left: Fox’s Reversible Cap.
