Wellington’s cable car is a major attraction of the city. Willow lived in Kelburn, Wellington, for nearly a year and rode to the city in the cable car almost daily. This song was written to celebrate the unique features of a cable car ride and view of Wellington (including the bell), and was recorded by The Mariners on Kiwi EP record The Four Cities and Two Gold Towns in 1961.

Arranged by Dorothea Franchi.
