O'rafferty's Motor Car Lyrics

Now Dinny O'Rafferty's motor car is the greatest I
declare
It's made up of bits and pieces that he's picked up
here and there
The engine must be ages old, but it's still got lots of
power
With a gallon of stout in the petrol tank it does
ninety miles an hour

What a wonderful motor car, it's the greatest ever seen
It used to be black as me father's hat, now it's forty
shades of green
On TV and the radio and in every public bar
The burning question of the day is O'Rafferty's motor
car

Now two of the wheels are triangular and the third
one's off a pram
The fourth is the last remaining wheel from off a
Dublin tram
The number plate's in Gaelic and the plug's won't even
spark
And the chassis came off a tinker's cart that collapsed
in Phoenix Park

Now go for a ride in that motor car and you'll end up
with the shakes
The road from Cork to Dublin is a vale of pains and
aches
When traffic lights turn red ahead, then you'd best
jump out the door
For the moment that Dinny treads on the break, then his
foot goes through the floor

What a wonderful motor car, it's the greatest ever seen
It used to be black as me father's hat, now it's forty
shades of green
On TV and the radio and in every public bar
The burning question of the day is O'Rafferty's motor
car

Now if you could see the upholstery, then your eyes
would start to pop
It's nothing but empty beer crates with a load of sacks
on top
The windscreen's gone to Lord knows where and there's
mothballs in the horn
And I reckon he'd only get half a quid if he took it to
the pawn

Now Dinny was driving around last week when the engine
did the splits
It went up in smoke and nearly blew O'Connell Street to
bits
They searched around for Dinny and found that he'd
landed up by heck
Away on top of the GPO with his L-plates round his neck

What a wonderful motor car, it's the greatest ever seen
It used to be black as me father's hat, now it's forty
shades of green
On TV and the radio and in every public bar
The burning question of the day is O'Rafferty's motor
car
