O'RAFFERTY'S MOTOR CAR (Tommie Connor) Val Doonican 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 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 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 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 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
