The Crown referred to in the song is a specific pub in the Cricklewood district of London, frequented by expatriate Irish. They speak of "the craic at the Crown in Cricklewood." I can imagine it would be a lively place in the old days, especially on paydays when the Irish construction would descend on the place.
