So my dad starts singing this song out of the blue today, but is missing one line.   He says he learned it from a guy who was going to law school in Berkeley in the 60's, who also taught him some lovely subversive songs (subversiveness in Berkeley in the 60's????   Who knew????). He says the first line is

My baby dresses in a leopard skin ...

Any thoughts, anybody?

Cheers,

Subject: Lyr Add: LEOPARD-SKIN PILL-BOX HAT (Bob Dylan)

Not what you want, probably, but it came up when I went searching, and it seems it's never been posted at Mudcat before, and it's from the right decade, so....


LEOPARD-SKIN PILL-BOX HAT
Bob Dylan

Well, I see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.
Yes, I see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.
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.
You know it balances on your head just like a mattress balances on a bottle of wine,
Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.

Well, if you wanna see the sun rise, honey, I know where.
We'll go out and see it sometime. We'll both just sit there and stare,
Me with my belt wrapped around my head, and you just sittin' there
In your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.

Well, I asked the doctor if I could see you. It's bad for your health, he said.
Yes, I disobeyed his orders. I came to see you but I found him there instead.
You know, I don't mind him cheatin' on me but I sure wish he'd take that off his head,
Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.

Well, I see you got a new boyfriend. You know, I never seen him before.
Well, I saw you makin' love with him. He forgot to close the garage door.
You might think he loves you for your money, but I know what he really loves you for.
It's your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.

[from "Blonde on Blonde," 1966.]
