It's t'owd man's Fault: Best ever Burt Bacharach Song

You can imagine Herb Alpert's screaming trumpets as the engine tries to change gear.
One day a DB5 and a martini, meanwhile a van and a pint of slurry will have to do.

Maybe there was an active cave access 'discussion' at the end ?!? :)

Dunno, not a lot of people know that.
