The Lyrics

About motor racing in the 1920's
We come from a time where the cars are slow
Where the race ain't won coz the engines blow
The chatter of the rods
We drive our cars to Brooklands
To beat the Ford, Singer and Austin
We holler, we are losing
On we creep, a thrashing roar
A gaping hole, my foot's right through the floor.

We come from a time where the cars are slow
Where the race ain't won coz the engines blow
It coughed, with yields un-green
With loadsa fails in store
Our backs were harmed, the rides were poor
We won't be beating Fords
On we creep, a thrashing roar
A gaping hole, we've blown the piston bore
So now we'd better stop and rebuild all our engines
This piece of rust can't win the day
Despite of all our cruising.

I've already spotted another rhyme I could have used. "To smite the Ford, Singer and Austin".

Thanks Alvin, glad you liked it. That was my 10th entry so still a novice but learning a few tricks by reading the ones submitted by most of you lot.

I concur with alvin, Andy. I thought this was a good job with a great OS. I particularly liked "Our backs were harmed, the rides were poor", heh heh.

Thanks Peregrin. It is a great OS - just like most of their stuff.

Excellent job. Incidentally - MOPAR rules!

Thanks for the comment Meriadoc - don't know enough about MOPAR to know whether it rules or not
