The annual car service

This song is about the dread of putting one's car through the annual test for roadworthiness. In England this is called the M.O.T. test (Ministry of Transport). The song opens up as follows:
The garage came to get my car
I like it less than my guitar
Its annual service is now due
It's seldom that I travel far.
The lyrics are written in quatrain form, chain-rhymed in iambic tetrameters (aaba bbcb ccdc ddad)
