Chips, Cheese, Trams And Es

A survey of takeaways in Glasgow has found the average size of a portion of chips has increased by more than 80% since 2002.  Which reminds us of this paean to chip shops in Edinburgh, from 2010…

I was born in the borders in Kelso
I moved to Edinburgh long ago
I like to hang out in chip shops
Have a pickled onion
And a couple bottles of Irn Bru

Picked up a copy of the Evening News
Telling me the minimum price of booze
1 Unit is 50p
I’ll have a pint of wine, then
It’s no fun being single, white and a pudding

Chips, Cheese, Trams and Es
The things you’ll find in Edinburgh town, they call for
Chips, Cheese, Trams and Es
And if you don’t like salt and sauce
You’ll have vinegar

Chips, Cheese, Trams and Es
The things you’ll find in Edinburgh town, they call for
Chips, Cheese, Trams and Es
There’s one on Broughton Street
They’ve got a DJ
