#154 We mark the passing of Dan Wheldon. Ask what’s wrong with Lewis Hamilton? Sniff Petrol confuses F1 with Eastenders. Why Gareth is already getting excited about Le Mans 2012. Plus The Mighty Lah! perform “Building Cars (Again) In Liverpool”.

Mighty Lah

The Mighty Lah! - Building Cars (Again) In Liverpool
 
Let’s Speke no more about the bad times
Don’t let it go to your head
It seems as if the car manufacturers
Are starting to see red.

We told the world "I wanna hold your hand"
We gave the world the prototype boy band
We even sing in tune while building your car
We had the Beatles, now we’ve got Jaguar.

CHORUS
No more down tools no more work to rule
The Mersey motor makers they ain’t no fool  
They’re building cars again in Liverpool
They’re building cars again in Liverpool.

Goodison and Anfield central to our creed
But Aintree was the home of the British Grand Prix
But now that Merseybeat is over
We shifted Focus now we make a Land Rover.

Were not Liver Birds and militant dockers
Not just a city of football and rockers
We do some swearin’ and fighting in bars
But were now effing good at building cars.
 
CHORUS
No more down tools no more work to rules
The Mersey Motor Makers they ain’t no fools  
They’re building cars again in Liverpool
We’re building cars again in Liverpool.
 
   
<Calm down calm down>

The home of “Four lads who shook the world”
We don’t have ‘taches and our hair isn’t curled
Alexi Sayle is now a Londoner
Real Scousers build the Freelander.

You’d get beaten up all of the time
Now were beating panels on the production line
You’d get mugged when you step out of your home
You shouldn’t walk alone.

Built TR7s but they were no good
Now we build the X-type in Halewood
We don’t say goodbye we say Ta-ra   
Don’t work for Dearborn we work for Tata.

No more down tools no more work to rules
The Mersey Motor Makers ain’t no fools
Their building cars again in Liverpool
Their building cars again in Liverpool
Were building cars again in Liverpool.

Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah!
