Be happy!
You’re sitting in Hyman’s Café
Looking out the window
Glowing on Meeting Street
As the friendly people
chatter inside
Welcome in the passer bys
The waitress from Greenville
attends the College
of Charleston
Wants to be a lawyer or doctor
We order fried green tomatoes,
flounder, baked potato,
okra, coleslaw, hushpuppies
Eat and pay
Walk down the wooden steps
To the general store
Look at many souvenirs
Head out into the November
Cobblestone night.
