about

My uncle and aunt had a shop in Sheldon and did well enough out of it to buy the first car I ever travelled in. Its appearance in our street had every curtain twitching and we felt like royalty as we climbed in for a spin to Sutton Park.

lyrics

Sun is out sky is blue
Everybody in
Fortified with tea and cakes
Just a little gin
Smell the leather, smell the wood
Isn't it a sin!
Going for a ride in a Jowett Javelin
Going for a ride in a Jowett Javelin

Jowett Javelin, Jowett Javelin
Going for a ride in a Jowett Javelin
Jowett Javelin, Jowett Javelin
Going for a ride in a Jowett Javelin
Going for a ride in a Jowett Javelin

Uncle's at the steering wheel
With a happy grin
He revs her up, lets her go
Makes the wheels spin
Auntie whacks him on the leg
Isn't it a sin!
Going for a ride in a Jowett Javelin
Going for a ride in a Jowett Javelin

Sutton Park by the lake
Shiny as a pin
Driving by the hoi polloi
Quieting their din
Waving like the king and queen
Wondering if they've been
Ever going for a ride in a Jowett Javelin
Going for a ride in a Jowett Javelin
