driving in my car lyrics – madness

i’ve been driving in my car
it’s not quite a jaguar
i bought it at 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 it for my job
the guvenor 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 had a little knock
i dented somebody’s fender
he’ll learn not to park on a bender
ha ha ha

i’ve been driving in my car
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 tyres 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 tyre
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
