There's a girl livin' down out street
She used to be mine
She used to go out with me
But now she's left with the boy next door
Because he's bought a Cortina Ford

She gives him love on the leatherette
Steamin' up the glass
Because I've seen her
But she only loves him because he's got at Cortina

Column change is neat neat neat
Gives you room for manoeuvre on the front bench seat
And the disc brakes hold you if you're inclined
The rear light clusters are a modern design

She gives him love on the leatherette
Steamin' up the glass
Because I've seen her
But she only loves him because he's got at Cortina

And I wish I had
I wish I had
I really wish I had a Cortina

It's a guarantee of s__ual conquest
But be sure to choose a model with retractable arm-rest
And if she wants to make up
You can really suprise her
There's a vanity mirror on the nearside visor

She gives him love on the leatherette
Steamin' up the glass
Because I've seen her
But she only loves him because he's got at Cortina

And I wish I had
I wish I had
I really wish I had a Cortina

Had some cash you know what I'd do
Read the ads in the local rag
Buy a little Mark II
Wheel trims
Everything
Four door
Two speeds wipers
Goin' in for the kill elbow on the windowstill
Flickin' on the cigarette lighter

And then you know she'd give me love on the leatherette
Steamin' up the glass
Because I've seen her
But she only loves him because he's got at Cortina

And I wish I had
I wish I had
I really wish I had a Cortina
Hey
