FOWC with Fandango: Traffic

A Walk down Dagenham Heathway

Once upon a time some years ago  I wanted to drive a car
I was 18 and living in London, but wanted to travel far
It really was not easy, but I was driving in the right lane
After ten lessons I gave up, it was becoming quite a pain
And then I moved to Switzerland, I travelled by train and trams
Even the roads in Europe had their traffic jams
One day I met my Mr. Swiss and he could drive quite well
And so I decided to learn again, but traffic was quite a hell
We Brits were driving on the left , the Swiss were on the right
Everything was the wrong way around, for me it was a fight
The steering wheel was on the left, to change gears I used my right hand
I was getting very confused, my driving was not grand
Right of way was from the right, my neck began to ache
My driving instructor shook his head, I was his big mistake
Ninety-five lessons later, it was decided I take the test
Now I was thirty-eight years old, although not at my best
But miracles happen every day, my instructor was very pleasey
I packed the steering wheel and changed the gears, no problem it was easy
I got my permit to drive free in the traffic, that was over 30 years ago
I could do it although it was a surprise, I joined the traffic show

  1. When I was 16, driving was a sign of maturity — I couldn’t wait! I grew up in a small town, with about 50K people in the whole town, so traffic was much less than it is now. My mother sent me on errands like filling the car with gas, etc. but I didn’t have a car of my own till I left home at 19.
