"Ilfracombe" as written by and Ryan Matthew Corrigan....
This summer I'm gonna get us a motorbike
To ride us up to Ilfracombe
And over the ravenscliffe
And it won't be the fancy kind
Ride before the easy wind
And take me in the corners
Be careful to hold on tight
And we would never highway ride
We'd take the quiet roads beside
And park along the cornfield
When it suits us right
This summer I'm gonna get us a motorbike
To ride us up to Ilfracombe
And over the ravenscliffe

And my brother will be terrified
He's had some friends that nearly died
I said that I'd be careful
And try not to ride at night
And he said
That's what they always say
Then a transport truck gets in you way
I want you holding flowers there
At my wedding day
Wedding day
This summer I'm gonna get us a motorbike
Something cheap on gasoline
To get us into town and back

And when the fascists
Lock the city down
And the riot police gather all around
Will we laugh
Will we laugh
Will we laugh
That once we romanticized
And we practically fantasized
About the downfall of a city
About the downfall of a country
About the downfall of a lifetime
This summer I'm gonna get us a motorbike
Something with some saddlebags
That we can pack a picnic in
This summer I'm gonna get us a motorbike
Something cheap on gasoline
To get us into town and back
