The Lyrics

Once Brewed is a hamlet with pub reached via the A69, Northumberland.
I got my first green Citroen
Bought it and removed the grime
Sprayed it till the thing was red
Drove it on the A69
Me and the guys weren't cool
We heard a bang and it died real hard
Jimmy flinched, Geordie got harried
Shoulda known it'd never get far
Oh, and when i look back now
I shoulda listened to our Trevor
And even our Joyce
Said it didn't look to clever
That was the worst car of my life

Ain't no use in complaining
When it got us to Once Brewed
Pushed the car ,'cos it wouldn't drive in
And that's when i met you
Standing by your mother's porsche
You told me it was such a revver
And how you looked so tanned
But i knew i couldn't woo you ever
Cos i had the worst car of my life
Oh yeah, but it did some of the A69 a ha

Man it was thick with grime,looked like dung, was feckless
It needed spraying, mind;
I shoulda listened to our Trevor, our Trevor oh......

( instrumental )

And now the gears weren't changing
Looked at everything and it was gone
Sometimes when i say "that old citroen"
I think about it "what could've went wrong ?"
And you, standing by your mother's porsche
You told me it was such a revver
And how you looked so tanned
But i knew i couldn't woo you ever
Cos i had the worst car of my life
Oh yeah, but it did some of the A69, Aha

Me and the guys weren't cool
Stuck on the A69, oh oh yeah...

( fade )

I like this parody, although one cannot fit the pronunciation of "Citroen" into "Summer of '69" very easily without wrecking the pacing. For that, you will get a 5 for how funny, a 1 for pacing and a 3 for overall.

I totally agree. It's funny but pacing issues.

Hilarious, a superb piece of comic genius. I had no problems(pacing) playing guitar to it. To be honest the original isn't great pacing anyway. Three x 5's from me, a Sta in the making.
