Bit of a stretch, I know, but “Dinny O’Rafferty’s Motor Car”;
“It used to be black as me father’s hat, now it’s forty shades of green!”

Amy Grant: “Hats!” “One day I’m a mother, one day I’m a lover, what am I supposed to do? Hats! Why do I have to wear so many hats on my head?”

One of the commenters here reviewed a children’s book in a blog post Millie’s Marvelous Hat worth a look

Off the top of my head (where else?) I’d have to include “Don’t Touch My Hat” (Lyle Lovett) in any top ten (“You can have my girl/But don’t touch my hat”) . . . along with “The Man with the Big Hat” (Jerry Jeff Walker) (“Now the man with the big hat is buying/Drink up while the drinking is free/Drink up to the cowboys a dead or a dying/Drink to my compadres and me.”).
