Oh! You who dine in cities, passing through plate-glass doors,
Winding in around swell tables set on polished marble floors,
Followin' a darky who will show you to your seat,
While one will take your hat and another brush your feet
Dinin' with fair ladies while sweet music fills the room,
And you gladly tip the "leader" for the lady's favorite tune;
You who linger long and listen to the things you like
to hear In the swell cafes in cities that to you are always
dear, May think that I am partial to the " cowboy" and
his "grub," But I 've dined at all those cafes and was fed once
at a club, And I've come to this conclusion, and right here
I want to say, When you eat at "Cafe Doughy's" you feel all
right next day, For here is "Doughy's" record, and beat it if you
can He's cooked for us for twenty years and never lost
a man.
