(Kayama picks up a derby.)

It's called a bowler hat
I have no wife
The swallow flying through the sky
Is not as swift as I
Am, flying through my life
You pour the milk before the tea
The Dutch ambassador is no fool
I must remember that

I wear a bowler hat
They send me wine
The house is far too grand
I've bought a new umbrella stand
Today I visited the church beside the shrine
I'm learning English from a book
Most exciting
It's called a bowler hat

(Kayama brings out a watch.)

It's called a pocket watch
I have a wife
No eagle flies against the sky
As eagerly as I
Have flown against my life
One smokes American cigars
The Dutch ambassador was most rude
I will remember that

I wind my pocket watch

We serve white wine
The house is far too small
I killed a spider on the wall
One of the servants thought it was a lucky sign
I read Spinoza every day
Where is my bowler hat?

(Kayama puts a monocle to his eye.)

It's called a monocle
I've left my wife
No bird exploring in the sky
Explores as well as I
The corners of my life
One must keep moving with the times
The Dutch ambassador is a fool
He wears a bowler hat

(Kayama puts on a pair of glasses.)

They call them spectacles
I drink much wine
I take important pills
I have a house up in the hills
I've hired British architects to redesign
One must accommodate the times
As one lives them
One must remember that

(Kayama holds up a tailcoat.)

It's called a cutaway
