  • I wonder why does ev'rybody look at me
    And then begin to talk about a Christmas tree?
    I hope that means that ev'ryone is glad to see
    The lady in the tutti-frutti hat

    The gentlemen, they want to make me say, "S, s"
    But I don't tell them that, I tell them, "Yes, sir-ee!"
    And maybe that is why they come for dates to me
    The lady in the tutti-frutti hat

    Some people say I dress too gay
    But ev'ry day, I feel so gay
    And when I'm gay, I dress that way
    Is something wrong with that?

    Now...
    Americanos tell me that my hat is high
    Because I will not take it off to kiss a guy
    But if I ever start to take it off, ay, ay!
    Ay, ay!
    I do that once for Johnny Smith
    And he is very happy with
    The lady in the tutti-frutti hat

    (Some people say you dress too gay
    But ev'ry day, you feel so gay
    And when you're gay, you dress that way
    Is something wrong with that?)

    INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE

    But still, seoritas, they are sweet and shy
    They dance and play together when the sun is high
    But when the tropical moon is in the sky, ay, ay
    Ay, ay!
    They have a different kind of time
    And even I forget this time
    The lady in the tutti-frutti hat

    Americanos tell me that my hat is high
    Because I will not take it off to kiss a guy
    But if I ever start to take it off, ay, ay!
    I do that once for Johnny Smith
    And he is very happy with
    The lady in the tutti-frutti hat Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
