The Dutch Land Rover Register Song

The Dutch Land Rover Register Song

(to the tune of the Irish folk song 'Wild Rover')

 I've owned a Land Rover for many a year
I use it to carry my whisky and beer.
When we're on safari with Rovers galore
We all give three cheers for this great 4 x 4

And it's no, nay never, no nay never no more
Will I sell my Land Rover, no never, no more

My bearings are buggered, the swivel pins too

The steering it wobbles, my problems are few
The leaks from the gear box and diff are so slow
So I’ll check all the levels, when the damn thing won’t go

And it's no, nay never, no nay never no more
Will I sell my Land Rover, no never, no more

A Range Rover faster, but uses more fuel

The people who drive them they look rather cool
It's from the same stable but has better springs
But let’s face it folks, it’s just not the real thing

And it's no, nay never, no nay never no more
Will I sell my Land Rover, no never, no more

A Forward Control doesn’t look quite so nice

But they used to be had for a very good price
Our Jaap thinks they do have their charms !
Just take a good look, in one of his Barns.

And it's no, nay never, no nay never no more
Will I sell my Land Rover, no never, no more

At rallies the Shorties they always come first

But the drivers all seem to develop a thirst
Series Ones, Twos en Threes all have their own place
And now the One Tens are the first in the race.

And it's no, nay never, no nay never no more
Will I sell my Land Rover, no never, no more

I bought an old Landy and stripped with care

A 2A fromSolihullis really quite rare
But how to repair it I asked in the Pub
They said, ask it at the Dutch Land Rover Club

And it's no, nay never, no nay never no more
Will I sell my Land Rover, no never, no more

The dutch members were quite a surprise

They all seemed to be such a nice bunch of guys
It's thanks to them that I now know much more
About the Land Rover, that great 4 x 4

And it's no, nay never, no nay never no more
Will I sell my Land Rover, no never, no more

While we are singing there's one thing to say

I'm sure we're all loving our wonderfull stay
It's thanks to you all that I know so much more
About the Land Rover - that great 4 x 4

And it's no, nay never, no nay never no more
Will I sell my Land Rover, no never, no more
