Richard Thompson – Mgb-Gt lyrics

I've got a little car and she might go far
She's the mistress of my heart now
She's a '65 with an overdrive
I fixed her in every part now
2 in the front and 2 in the back
110 on the old Hog's Back
She's my mgb-Gt she's a runner now
I welded the sills and the old floor pan
Cut the rust with the torch and the hacksaw
Took the Rostyles off, put the spoke wheels on
Got a brand new Salisbury axle
When I drive through town the girls all smile
They say, there's a man with retro-style
Mgb-Gt she's a runner now
Lockheed discs and twin sus
Original chrome on the grill now
Looks llike a dream in racing green
Competition's standing still now
I sprayed her body, I strengthened her frame
I stripped her right down and built her up again
An Alpine's fine if you've got the time
And a Healey'll set you back some
Tr4 cost a little bit more
But it don't have the same attraction
Hard top handy case of the weather
I don't care if it rains forever
