Went Down to Hastings : The Ballad

Went down to Hastings,
What did I see? 
Coming for to carry us home, 
A pair of Vauxhall Astra’s, 
Almost identically, 
Coming for to carry us home,

Swing low, sweet Vauxhall Astra, 
Coming for to carry me home, 
Swing low, sweet Vauxhall Astra, 
Coming for to carry me home,

Burst a tyre near Bracknell, 
What did I see? 
Coming for to carry us home, 
An AA rescue vehicle, 
Coming straight to me, 
Coming for to carry me home,

Swing low, sweet AA tow truck, 
Coming for to carry me home, 
Swing low, sweet AA tow truck, 
Coming for to carry me home,

Got us into Bracknell
What did I see? 
Trying for to carry me home, 
The other vauxhall Astra, 
Broken down near KFC, 
Lending me a tyre to get home,

Swing low, sweet AA tow truck, 
Coming for to carry me home, 
Swing low, sweet AA tow truck, 
Coming for to carry me home, 
 

Lost a second tyre, 
What did I see? 
Passing us to carry them home, 
Another AA vehicle, 
So far number three, 
Heading for to carry them home,

Swing low, sweet AA tow truck, 
Coming for to carry me home, 
Swing low, sweet AA tow truck, 
Coming for to carry me home, 
 

Stood out in the rain,
What did I see? 
Coming for to carry me home, 
Another AA tow truck, 
Taking us to Chievely, 
Coming for to carry me home,

Swing low, sweet AA tow truck, 
Coming for to carry me home, 
Swing low, sweet AA tow truck, 
Coming for to carry me home, 
 

Got to the service station,
What did I see? 
Coming for to carry me home, 
A waiting AA vehicle, 
With another wheel for me 
Coming for to carry me home, 
 

Swing low, sweet AA tow truck, 
Coming for to carry me home, 
Swing low, sweet AA tow truck, 
Coming for to carry me home, 
 

Got back to Cardiff,
Quarter past three, 
Feeling very glad to be home, 
Thank god for AA tow trucks, 
That came to rescue me, 
And that we had mobile phones.

Swing low, sweet AA tow truck, 
Coming for to carry me home, 
Swing low, sweet AA tow truck, 
Coming for to carry me home.
