IN the famous Guildhall
Mayor and Alderman all
Meet to banquet and feast,
And it's whispered that they
Aren't inclined in the least
From the table to stray:
For they're fond of good cheer,
And they meet with it here,
Where the wine
Is so fine,
And still better than that,
Where the turtle's rich fat
Tempts the guests when they dine.
Turtle soup's very good,
And a favourite food,
With the banqueters all
Who frequent the Guildhall.
