A Christmas toast to Rootes motoring:
A pledge and a toast to those of the spanner,
Ye brothers and sisters of auld,
Driving fashionably, well in good British manner,
Such a wondrous sight to behold.
Oh blood of our blood, and grease of our greased,
By ancient tradition enshrined,
Sit us all down to a grand Christmas feast,
Preserving the best cars designed.
Our Pledge, Oh heirs of Lord Rootes,
By the bond of the rotating wheel,
While exhaust notes resound our salutes,
True neighbors’ firm friendship we seal.
Happy Christmas, everyone!
