The Hat Song

An odd little ditty by Kevin Ayres (occasional member of the Soft Machine)which is rather Bonzoesque:

You say you like my shirt
My shirt
You say you like my hat
My hat
Oh but you never say you like me
Or something nice like that
What about me?
What about me?
What about me?
What about me?
Is it just an envelope that you can see?


You need to hear the recording to get the full feel (obviously!). But the quirky feel to it is definitely of the Stanshall/Innes variety.

I know Ayres was a contemporary of Syd Barrett et al, but does anyone know if he had anything to do with the Ginger Geezer or anyone else in the mob?
