Come on down to the Mermaid Cafe and I will buy you a bottle of wine
And we'll laugh and toast to nothing and smash our empty glasses down...
A round for these friends of mine
Let's have another round for the bright red devil
Who keeps me in this tourist town
Maybe I'll go to Amsterdam
Or maybe I'll go to Rome
And rent me a grand piano and put some flowers 'round my room
But let's not talk about fare-thee-welIs now
The night is a starry dome,
And they're playin' that scratchy rock and roll
Beneath the Matalla Moon
