I've been driving in my car...

I've been driving in my car, it's not quite a Jaguar
I bought it in Primrose Hill from a bloke from Brazil

I've been driving in my car, it don't look much but I've been far
I drive up to Muswell Hill, I've even been to Selsey Bill
I drove along the A45, I had her up to 58

This copper stopped me the other day, you're mistaken what could I say
The tyres were a little worn, they were O.K., I could have sworn
I like driving in my car, I'm satisfied I've got this far
