QuotesEdit

Andy: “A Wasp Star reject, that when it first came up, got me all fired to do a complete concept album about life as funfair. Hence ‘It's a fun, fair life.’ 'Twas not to be at this juncture, but I did find a great Johnny and the Hurricanes ‘Rockin' Goose’ tone for the keyboard line. That and ‘Red River Rock’ are the ultimate funfair songs. Taste the cundy floss.”

LyricsEdit

Bumpercars

Bumpercars

Drive around in someone else's wheels

On the rented road

Yes sir, no sir,

In your straightest jacket

Couldn't you explode


Bumpercars

Bumpercars


All week sell paint to the plebs

Shy daughters lard white slacks

Kiss me beneath Haunted House

Bells ring and airguns crack

My boss's back


Bumpercars

Bumpercars

Drive around in someone else's wheels

On the rented road

Yes sir, no sir,

In your straightest jacket

You're on overload


Bumpercars (bumper to bumper)

Bumpercars (bumper to bumper)


Take home your Lucky Dip wage

Don't you just hate his wife

Daydream of denting her rear

Then cut her up jacknife

It's a fun-fair life


Bumpercars (bumper to bumper)

Bumpercars (bumper to bumper)


And you know when it's time to change gear

With the speed that the weekend comes

For the boys that we always practise with

For the girls that we always practise with

You'll know when it's time to change gear

Yes you'll know when it's time to change gear


Drive around in tiny little circles

In a souped up tin

Swerve and dodgem until that something snaps

And then you smash 'em in


Bumpercars (bumper to bumper)

Bumpercars (bumper to bumper)

Bumpercars (bumper to bumper)

Bumpercars (bumper to bumper)
