MY BICYCLE: A Song

With sincere apologies to Scotland (Wikipedia History), Tony Sheridan (YouTube), Ray Charles (YouTube), and children everywhere (Hum the melody!) for this parody of My Bonnie. ;-D.

MY BICYCLE

My bicycle takes me along the bike trail, my bicycle heads down the road with me,
My bicycle takes me along the bike trail , O come ride with my bicycle and me.

Chorus:
Ride with, ride with, O ride with my bicycle and me, and me:
Ride with, ride with, O ride with my bicycle and me.

O pedal ye swiftly over the bike trail,
O pedal ye swiftly to the sea.
O pedal ye swiftly over the bike trail,
And ride your bicycle with me.

Repeat chorus

Last night as I lay on my pillow,
Last night as I lay on my bed,
Last night as I lay on my pillow,
I dreamed that bicycling was dead.

Repeat chorus

The bicycles have ridden down the bike trail,
The bicycles have ridden to the sea,
The bicycles have ridden down the bike trail,
And brought you on your ride to join me.

Repeat chorus

My bicycle needs no gas tank,
It is people powered you see,
I use my own legs to assist her,
O come ride your bicycle with me.

Repeat chorus

Last night as I went by all the cars,
Last night as I watched them drive ahead,
Seeing they were numerous as the stars,
I imagined that all the bicyclists were dead.

Repeat chorus

My mother wouldn't even let me ride in the bike lane,
My father thought Mountain Biking a sin,
My sisters thought not having a car was insane,
Wouldja believe what a pickle I was in?

Repeat chorus

My mother, she got run over by a Yugo,
My father, he died flattened by a truck,
My sisters were killed by a drunk driver you know,
My God, to die this way, what the F***? (or Heck, if around the kiddies!)

Repeat chorus

I tried joining the Auto Club,
I tried rush hour, high gas prices, and the like,
I tried owning a car like you, bub
Now I happily just cruise on my bike.
