GET THIS RIG BACK ON THE ROAD

GET THIS RIG BACK ON THE ROAD

When your bucket of bolts has broke down on life's highway
and you're fixing to have the thing towed,
bodgie it up with some bog and some gaffer
and get it back out on the road.
Just get this rig back on the road.

When life gets you down and you're scraping the bottom,
when your back's breaking under the load,
bodgie it up with some bog and some gaffer
and get it back out on the road.
Just get this rig back on the road.

When everything aches and you're falling to pieces,
when your heads feels it wants to explode,
bodgie it up with some bog and some gaffer
and get it back out on the road.
Just get this rig back on the road.

Bind it together with string and with wire,
let's ride till it's time to unload.
Just bodgie it up with some bog and some gaffer
and get it back out on the road.
Just get this rig back on the road.

I've been beside you with each mile you've travelled,
I've taken each stride that you strode.
So bodgie it up with some bog and some gaffer
and get it back out on the road.
Just get this rig back on the road.

Just get this rig back on the road.

Well said, Allan!

I'm feeling a bit in need of bog and gaffer this morning, so it's very apt! :(

Cheers, Shelley
