Does anyone know the lyrics and chords to a German song about a three-colored hat?

Not offhand. May I suggest, too, that you might be better off starting over and putting "German three-colored hat" in the subject line. "Need help with a song" is superfluous, and doesn't sell itself to those readers who may be able to help.

Besides, that will bring your request to the attention of those folks here who are either German or who have a specific interest in German songs.

I checked Volkslieder (the ingeb site) and there was nothing for "drei farbiger hut". Nothing with "hut" at all. Big fat ???? Any lyric snippets at all?

Is that "Me hat, me hat me hat, three corners has me hat"? Can't remember more than that, but it is a kids song.

Yes, it's Three-cornered Hat. It's a cute song. One of the residents at the nursing home where I work sings it a lot, and I wanted to play it on my autoharp. I hope you remember me. I've sung in the Paltalk rooms before.

Oh, OK, I wasn't sure. It's here, at the KIDdiddles site. I suppose I should copy/paste since I didn't find it here.......I'll be back.

My Hat, It Has Three Corners
Written By: Unknown
Copyright Unknown

My hat, it has three corners,
Three corners has my hat
And had it not three corners,
It would not be my hat.

_____ hat, it has three corners,
Three corners has _____ hat
And had it not three corners,
It would not be _____ hat.

_____ _____, it has three corners,
Three corners has _____ _____
And had it not three corners,
It would not be _____ _____.

_____ _____, it has _____ corners,
_____ corners has _____ _____
And had it not _____ corners,
It would not be _____ _____.

_____ _____, it has _____ _____,
_____ _____ has _____ _____
And had it not _____ _____,
It would not be _____ _____.

Actions:

My - Point to self
Hat - Point to head
Three - Hold up three fingers
Corners - Bend arm and point to elbow

Omit the words in verses where "_____" is displayed, but do the corresponding actions.

How To Make a Three-Cornered Paper Hat:

Start with a double sheet of newspaper folded in the middle. With the fold at the top, fold the corners down to meet in the center. It will make a triangle on top of two rectangle flaps. Fold the flap in the front up and bend the corners over. Turn the hat over and do the same thing with the other flap. Now you have a triangle. Open the hat in the middle. Push the two end points together so the middle pushes out to form a square. The bottom points on the square are now flaps. Fold the front one up so the point meets the top point of the triangle. Turn the hat over and fold up the remaining point.

Und hat er nicht drei ecken
Dann ist es nicht mein hut.

Hut;
Und hätt' er nicht drei Ecken,
Dann wär' er nicht mein Hut!

From Volkslieder und Volksreime aus Westpreussen by Alexander Treichel (Danzig: Theodor Bertling, 1895), page 124:

Mein Hut, der hat drei Ecken,
Drei Ecken hat mein Hut;
Und hätt' er nicht drei Ecken,
So wär' er nicht mein Hut!
