From "Gurt Big 'Ead" by The Wurzels:
(Lyrics spoken, over a tune that sounds like the Hovis advert music)

Back in 1497
John Cabot says to 'is Dad
"I thing I'll go and discover Americal,
Cos times is lookin' bad.
'Course, I'll ave to borrow a coupla quid,
And some clothes and yer old Top 'At,
'Cos a 'At like that is ten years old,
And bin slept in by the cat."

'Is dad looked up from 'is paper,
wi' 'is glasses on the end of is nose.
"Whatever d'you think you'll look like," 'e said,
"Dressed up in my old clothes?
They ain't never goin' to fit you, my old son,
'Cos you'm much too bloomin' well fed"
He looked at his hat,
He lookd at John's head,
"Cor blimey blinkin' O'reilly" he said,

"You'll never get a gurt big head like thine
in a tiny little hat like this.
The odds is all against thee,
I should knock 'ee off thee list.
If 'ee were to try and force 'im on,
the sides would all buckle and twist
No, thee's never get a gurt big 'ead like thine
in a tiny little 'at like this."

There's more but can't remember it at the moment.
