Subject: RE: BS: I've never wrecked a car before!!!!.
Hmmm ! - Having just had to pay £270.00 to get my old Ford Fiesta through the MOT (An examination to proove basic road worthiness on cars over 3 years old in the UK) I thought this might be appropriate.

O the cost is high and the wages low,
Leave her, Johnny, leave her!
I think it's time for us to go!
An' it's time for us to leave her!

Leave her, Johnny, leave her!
Oh, leave her, Johnny, leave her!
For the shell is done an' the exhaust blow,
An' it's time for us to leave her!

O I thought I heard the MOT Man say,
Today's the day I'll earn my pay!

It's a welding job, and that is that,
It's the sill is 'gorn and that's a fact..

Her bearings shot and the cylinder head,
Oh she won't go far, the mechanic said.

The oil was foul an' the temp' ran high,
She struggled on but all went by.

We'd be better off in a nice new car,
With this banger, well, she got this far.

The brakes are shot, and the windscreen cracked,
It's a massive bill to bring her back.

O the cost is high and the wages low,
Leave her, Johnny, leave her!
I think it's time for us to go!
An' it's time for us to leave her!!
