RIDING ON TOP OF THE CAR (Harry Von Tilzer (m) Fred W Leigh (l) V P Bryan (l) ) recorded by George Lashwood 1905 Some people declare that a quiet country lane Is the very best place for a "spoon". An old rustic stile must be there, they'll explain, And not too much light from the moon. Now,my girl and I live in town, you must know, Where quiet country lanes can't be found; We've no rustic stiles in our neighbourhood, so Ev'rytime Sunday ev'ning comes round- Then we go go go for a ride on the car car car, For we know how cosy the tops of the tramcars are. The seats are so small, and there's not much to pay, You sit close together and "spoon" all the way. There's many a miss will be missis some day, Thro' riding on top of the car. We climb on the car where the journey begins, And we make for the first vacant seat. For all other people we don't care two pins, So long as our comfort's complete. And when the conductor comes up for the fares He punches our tickets, then goes, But gives us a wink as he pops down the stairs; Like an overgrown Cupid, in clothes. Then we go go go for a ride on the car car car, For we know how cosy the tops of the tramcars are. The seats are so small, and there's not much to pay, You sit close together and "spoon" all the way. There's many a miss will be missis some day, Thro' riding on top of the car. We get to the end of the journey all right, Or at least to the end of the track. But while all the others prepare to alight, We remain on the car, and go back. And when we get married, now boys, here's a tip That ought to be useful to you. We shan't spend too much on our honeymoon trip, For we've made up our minds what to do. We shall go go go for a ride on the car car car, For we know how cosy the tops of the tramcars are. The seats are so small, and there's not much to pay, You sit close together and "spoon" all the way. There's many a miss will be missis some day, Thro' riding on top of the car. note - lyrics as written, not as recorded (Contributed by Peter Akers - December 2017)
