We Are Wearing Our Red Hats
(Tune: Take Me Out to the Ball Game)

We are wearing our red hat
Purple dresses we sport
Strutting our stuff with the other chicks
Having a ball as our colours we mix.
Oh and we will play our kazoos loud
We don’t care what folks say
For it’s good times now that we have
On our Red Hat Day!

For She’s a Jolly Red Hatter
(Tune: For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow)

For she’s a jolly red hatter, for she’s a jolly red hatter
For her please raise a loud clatter, or play upon your kazoo

On your kazoo, KAZOO, and cheer her proudly, too,
For she’s a jolly red hatter, so cheer her proudly, too.

We won’t be home until morning, we won’t be home until morning–
Yes, bedtime we are all scorning. Red Hatters always do.

Red Hatters always do, Red Hatters always do
Red Hatters heed this warning – No bedtime before two!

Red Hat Rounds #1
(Tune : Frere Jacques)

Come, Red Hatters. Come Red Hatters.
Hear our call. Hear our call!
Joy to all we’re bringing, with our raucous singing
Have a ball! Have a ball!

Red Hat Rounds #2
(Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat)

Red Hats must be seen, what else are they for?
In red hats and purple gowns, life is not a bore.

Red Hat Rounds #3
(Tune: Oh How Lovely is the Evening)

Oh how friendly are Red Hatters, are Red Hatters
When they gather, all that matters to Red Hatters
Is fun, such fun, much fun.

Red Hat Rounds #4
(Tune: Down at the Station)

With our purple PJ.’s on, at our monthly brunch
Hear Red Hatters singing, golly what a bunch
We’re here to see the Queen Mum and the Vice Mum too
Give them both a loud cheer, before we start to munch
Yes, give them both a loud cheer, before we start to munch.

God Save The Red Hat Queen
(Tune: God Save the Queen)

United do we stand,
Our ladies hand-in-hand
God save The Queen.

Our hearts are tried and true.
Our hats are red, not blue,
Our dress is purple too,
God Save The Queen

Our power will they dread
When they see hats of red
God save The Queen.

As we stand hand-in-hand
Across our wondrous land,
In purple shall we stand.
God Save The Queen.

Red Hats, Red Hats
(Tune: Daisy, Daisy)

Red Hat, Red Hat, Red Hat Society
We get together for fun and frivolity
We don’t hold monthly meetings
But we specialise in eating,
And we all have fun, each and every one
On our outings, wherever they be.

Red Hats, Red Hats, we wear every time we meet
With purple dresses, our colours for all to see,
We wear our colours so proudly, is the order of the day
Dressed in our best, we outshine the rest
So here’s to us, lets all shout, Hooray!

Red and Purple Favourites
(Tune: My Favourite Things)

Red shoes and purses and boas with feathers
Purple ensembles to wear in all weathers
Earrings that sparkle, and big diamond rings
These are a few of our favourite things.

Tulle covered red hats and red hats with veiling
Curvy red visors and red hats for sailing
Red hats of cotton all crocheted from string
These are a few of our favourite things.

We’re all Red Hats
Yes, the Red Hats
Loving life, not sad
And while we are wearing our favourite things
We truly all feel so glad!

Red hats with wide brims and red hats with roses,
Red hats with ribbons and red hats with posies,
Bonnets we keep on by tying their strings
These are a few of our favourite things.

Red hats with sequins or long trailing feathers,
Red hats of velvet and hats of red leather,
Neat hats and chic hats, the smiles that they bring
These are a few of our favourite things.

We’re all Red Hats
Yes, the Red Hats
Loving life, not sad
And while we are wearing our favorite things
We truly all feel so glad!

You Are My Red Hat
(Tune: You Are My Sunshine)

You are my red hat, my lovely red hat,
And with my purple clothes you are wild.
It’s well known that you’re such a show hat
And you make me feel so beguiled.

You were in a corner, a dusty corner
Of that thrift shop I adore
I grabbed you right up, I bought you quickly
And I marched right out the door.

You are my red hat, my only red hat
And I’ll wear you without fear
You’ll never look like I don’t adore you
I’ll always decorate you dear.

I’ll use red feathers, and purple baubles
And put big flowers in your brim
Pins will adorn you and veils won’t daunt you,
Upon my crown you won’t look grim.

‘Cause you’re my red hat, my lovely red hat,
And with my purple clothes you’re wild.
It’s well known that you’re such a show hat
And you make me feel so beguiled.

In Our Red Hats We’re Beguiling
(Tune: When You’re Smiling)

In our red hats, we’re beguiling
And we’re pert in purple, too.

In our red hats, we’ll be smiling
And when you see us, you’ll smile, too.

We’re at an age when we do as we choose–
You must agree that we’re real piperoos

It’s not hat styling, that keeps us smiling
It’s the smiles that come from YOU

Red Hat Woman
(Tune: I Am Woman)

I am woman, hear me roar
As I put my hat on going out the door.
It’s red as red can be
And when I wear it, I’m filled with glee!

My purple outfit may be a little tight
But I think it fits me just right.
My other accessories I do don
You’d think a fairy princess touched me with her wand.

When I meet my other Red Hatters to shop and dine
We all look so perfectly fine!
We have fun and giggle a lot,
And when we walk down the street, people stop and watch.

Oh, how grand this is for us
That we’ve learned laughter is a must!
And so I say to you dear Red Hatters
In life, friendship and fun,
That’s what matters!

There is a Tavern in the Town
(Tune – same)

There is a tavern in the town, in the town
Where red hatters sit them down, sit them down
And drink their wine as merry as can be
While other chapters sip their tea.

When the time comes we sadly leave it,
You will surely will not believe it
Though you know that even best of friends
Must part, must part.

Adieu, kind friends, I say, adieu, yes adieu.
Red Hatters now are leaving you, leaving you.
Do not cry or pine or even weep or frown
We’ll all meet at more hoots, farther down.

Let Me Wear Your Red Hat
(Tune: Let Me Call You Sweetheart)

Let me wear your red hat and your purple gown, too.
I’d like to be a Red Hat lady, just like you.
Fling that boa ‘round my neck and add some pearls
Let me join the fun crowd like your Red Hat girls!

You keep the whole world happy with the things you do.
No one in a Red Hat group is ever blue.
To the other sisters you are always true.
If I could wear a red hat I’d be true blue, too!

Yes, We Have No More Red Hats
(Tune: Yes, We Have No Bananas)

Yes, we have no more red hats,
We have no more red hats for you.
We wish we had some more red hats
But here’s what we can do for you:
We have white hats and gray hats and green hats and blue.
We’ve ecru and puce hats and yellow ones, too
But Wait! I found one more red hat—the one I’ve been saving for you!

Red Hats Sailing Toward Me
(Tune: Blue Skies)

Red hats sailing toward me,
Nothing but red hats do I see.
Sleek gowns, purple display
Worn by red hatters, now at play.

On this purple sea, red hats in a fleet
Bobbing along, to our own beat
All the sailors shout when we come about
“Red Hatters, dear, drop anchor here.

Oh, red hats, it’s you we adore
No one could love, Red Hatters more!”

Purple Dress, Red Hat, Too
(Tune: Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue)

Purple dress, red hat too,
Oh, what those red hats can do
When worn by our Red Hatter gals.

At your whim, twist the brim
Add a veil and feathered trim
Wear rhinestone jewels and lots of pearls

Then you go, out the door, for fun galore
Out for lunch, brekky or brunch
No matter where, people will stare

You pass by, people sigh.
This is fun, you just can’t buy.
This is what wearing red hats can do.

In My Cute Red Bonnet
(Tune: In Your Easter Bonnet)

In my cute red bonnet, with pretty ribbons on it,
I’ll be one of the many, in the red hat parade.

All of us in purple, we form a friendship circle,
And have a great time smiling, in the red hat parade.

In a coffee shop or a shopping spree,
We laugh and do lunch, and know we are all we wanted to be.

So,……. We can all wear purple, and join a happy circle
And be a grand dame lady in the red hat parade.

Free as the Breeze Red Hats
(Tune: I’m As Free as the Breeze)

We’re as free as the breeze
Red Hatters can do whatever they please
And that’s exactly what we do
We’re free, as the breeze

Free to lounge around and be at ease,
And that’s exactly what we do
We can go for cocktails, lunch or teas
Though some are in our seventies

There’s no guilt when we’re done!
We live a life of fun.
Free, no one’s more free than we
And free’s the way, we always want to be
To do the things, we want to do.

Red Hats in the Sunset
(Tune: Red Sails in the Sunset)

Red hats in the sunset, red hats in the dark,
Red hats on parade and red hats in the park.

Love those bold red hatters
In their purple attire,
Love purple pajamas
But red hats set me on fire

Red hats in the sunset, put one on my head,
And it’ll still be there until I drop dead.

Hat of My Hats
(Tune: Heart of My Heart)

Hat of my hats, I love what you stand for.
Hat of my hats, you’ve opened many a door.

When we walk out in gaudy purple gowns,
We are rough and ready gals
We’re all good friends, we’re really pals.

And, hat of my hats, you’ve made me great new friends
To you I say, “Congrats! With those flowers on you,
And purple bows upon you
You make my heart sing:
“Hat of my hats!”

Red Hat Ladies
(Tune: Bye Bye Blackbird)

Purple outfits and red hats, We’re a going’ where it’s at,
Red Hat Ladies.
We’re fun lovin’ senior gals, and we are the best of pals, Red Hat Ladies

When you see us smile and say “hello there”,
Funny jokes and laughter, that’s what we share.
Every time we go to lunch, We can’t wait to see the bunch of Red Hat Ladies. Red Hat Ladies.
