"South Carolina" as written by and John S. Linnell....
The other day my neighbor has a dented bike
Second day he called me from intensive care
Says he needs a picture of the dented bike
For the evidence of what a wreck he had

Accident
Accident

Lift that fork, eat that snail
Garcon summon up a new cocktail
Lift that fork, eat that snail
Garcon summon up a new cocktail

Crash my bicycle
Crash my bicycle
In a big South Carolina wreck
I crash my bicyle
Crash my bicycle
Crash my bicycle
In a big South Carolina wreck
I crash my bicyle

And I won some damages and they were punitive
By which I mean the punishment was damaging
It crushed my hand
It crushed my head
Garcon, where's my drink?

Wreck!
Observe the front wheel spinning upside down
Wreck!
The red reflector fragments strewn around
Wreck!
The back wheel's 'O' is now a letter 'D'
Wreck!
I was an 'I' and now I am a 'V'

Lift that fork, eat that snail
Garcon summon up a new cocktail
Lift that fork, eat that snail
Garcon summon up a new cocktail

Crash my bicycle
Crash my bicycle
In a big South Carolina wreck
I crash my bicyle
Crash my bicycle
Crash my bicycle
In a big South Carolina wreck
I crash my bicyle

If I had to do it all again, by bicycle
If I had to do it, I would crash my bicycle
I'd crush my head
Collect the bread
Crash my bicycle

Move around folks
Push her back there, move along
Show's over, folks
Let him breathe, step lively
Move around folks
Push her back there, move along
Show's over, folks
Let him breathe, step lively

    General CommentA man sees his neighbor recieve lots of lawsuit money from a bicycle accident, and decides to crash his own bike on purpose. He's pretty badly injured, but he'd do it again if he had the chance, just to be able to sit in his hospital bed all day drinking cocktails and eating escargo.

    General CommentJust wanted to comment on destroyalltacos comment:

    This sort of happened to me. I got broadsided by a speeding car on my bicycle. My helmet saved my head--I consider myself a sort of poster child for bicycle helmets.

    Anyway, I got a modest settlement for a new bike. I sweetened the pot to the tune of about 20%, and bought I nice new bike. When I got it, I was standing next to it, feeling good about it, especially the fact that it was something of a windfall. And I said, out loud, ...

    "For a bike like this, I'd have *two* accidents!"
