    Let us sing a little song about the Bruces
    Let us celebrate that good old Scottish name
    Let’s immortalize their faces,
    There gentilities and graces
    In our own completely private Hall of Fame

    As to Charlotte, she’s petite and very gracious
    With a pleasant dash of sprightliness and fun
    She’s a clever raconteur
    And a penny connoisseur
    And she holds her own at bridge with anyone

    As to Alfred, he is straight and tall and brainy
    He’s a rootin’ - tootin’ engineering chief
    Oh, he makes the choo-choos choo
    And he plays pinochle too
    With an everlasting luck beyond belief

    Let us sing a little song about the Bruces
    May their clouds, if they have any, all disperse
    May the guiding star above ‘em
    Never leave ‘em for we love ‘em
    Which is why we up an busted into verse

    Presented to Mr. and Mrs. Alfred W. Bruce, Jan 8, 1938
