Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Ballad of Mini Cooper (Archie Fisher)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Ballad of mini Cooper
That Archie's a closet gearhead. When he played our town a few years ago, I got to open for him. I was working at the time at the Canadian Tire (large hardware/automotive chain) across the road from where he was staying. He came into the store before he left town, looking for a special set of "spanners" he could take back to Scotland so could fix the brake lines on his vintage Saab! (unfortunately we didn't seem to have them in stock).

I'd have to say, though clever enough, that lyric's not one of his all time classics. Early years.

I want a Mini Cooper.
