Push me off to start the fun
On a bike ride to the moon
Lots of room for everyone
On a bike ride to the moon

And we'll bring back cheese for my Auntie Jane
And some magic moon dust that'll stop the rain
On my poor Uncle Alfred's head, even though he stays in bed (silly Alfred)

Why not bring a pot of tea
On a bike ride to the moon
Angel cake for you and me
On a bike ride to the moon

And we'll pack a tent 'case it's cold at night
And I'll share your sleeping bag if I might
And might be a positive boon
To protect you from the man in the moon (Who happens to be me, look out!)

Racing forward can't look back
On a bike ride to the moon
What did I omit to pack
On a bike ride to the moon?

With the stars all glinting in the shiny Chrome
Then I suddenly remembered what I left at home
Now I shan't be peddling any higher
'Cos a sharp Sputnik has given me a cosmic flat tyre

    General CommentThis was actually done under the name The Dukes Of Stratosphear, which was more or less XTC pretending to be a psychadelic pop band from the 60's. This particular song is pretty clearly modeled after Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd both musically and lyrically, see "Bike" for a similar example of surreal lyrical whimsy.
