The Cafe Royal

The Auld Overgate's up an awa
Wi Tally Street and Thorter Raa
Whaur Cafe Royal's atmosphere
Brimmed an frothed wi custome cheer

A favour'd meeting place
For city gents an sportin ace
An thespians (off stage)
Puttin on an act I'll wage

Sodjers, sailors - hame on leave
Wi tall stories up their sleeve
An journalists (I guess)
Preparin copy for the press

Cafe Royal made guid grade
In auld Overgate's licensed trade.
