I had a little motor car,
And I took it round the cooooooorner
And I slammed on the brakes.
Sometimes we did “But the brakes didn’t work, so I …” but I don’t remember what we said then.
Doncaster, Melbourne, Australia. 1980's
1 person in the rope, 2 turning. Person in rope sings:
I had a motor car, 1968,
took it round the corner (child runs around the turner and jumps back in)
slammed on the brakes, but the brakes didn’t work and I took it down the hill,
I took it really fast (turners speed up rope)
and I’m going still.
(The other children sing out:
How fast are you going?
1,2,3…. (whilst the turners keep speeding up the rope.)
