  • I've been driving in my car
    It's not quite a Jaguar
    I bought it in Primrose Hill
    From a bloke from Brazil
    It was made in fifty-nine
    In a factory by the Tyne

    It says Morris on the door
    The GPO owned it before
    I drive in it for my job
    The governor calls me a slob
    But I don't really care
    Give me some gas and the open air

    It's a bit old but it's mine
    I mend it in my spare time
    Just last week I changed the oil
    The rocker valves and the coil
    Just last week I changed the oil

    Last week it went 'round the clock
    I also heard a little knock
    I dented somebody's fender
    He learned not to park on a bender, ha ha ha

    I've been driving in my car
    And it don't look much but I've been far
    I drive up to Muswell Hill
    I've even been to Selsey Bill
    I drove along the A45
    I had her up to fifty-eight
    This copper stopped me the other day
    "You're mistaken," what could I say?
    The tires were a little worn
    They were ok, I could have sworn
    I like driving in my car
    I'm satisfied I've got this far

    I like driving in my car
    It don't look much but I've been far
    I like driving in my car
    Even with a flat tire

    I like driving in my car
    It's not quite a Jaguar
    I like driving in my car
    I'm satisfied I've got this far Writer/s: Cathal Joseph Smyth, Christopher John Foreman, Daniel Mark Woodgate, Graham Mcpherson, Lee Jay Thompson, Mark William Bedford, Michael Barson
