"Mega Bottle Ride" as written by Joe Strummer, Scott Shields, Martin Paul Slattery, Tymon Dogg and Pablo Cook....
I took a tram into the fourth dimension
'Cause I had the blues, the blues of throwing it all away
Just gimme a Tequila, I'll slam it the 4-D way
And when I got there you know it had certain similarities

Like no smoking anywhere
And hiding in the khazi to avoid paying the fare
4-D Tequila anyone
And don't think we didn't dance to records by the Fifth Dimension
In the disco sphere like Kublai Khan, Kublai Khan

And it was pretty goddam hazardous
Out on the Illminster by-pass, out on the Illminster by-pass
Out on the Illminster by-pass, out on the Illminster by-pass
Aqua-planing to the theme park
We took a ride called the Banchoff-Klein mega bottle ride
Well, how we spewed inside, back and forth
In time, mathematics and pride, inside

We've gone Balkan, we've gone Balkan anyway
It absolutely had to happen to someone today
Yeah, there's no smoking anywhere, throw it all away
Yeah, we've gone Balkan anyway, you can get rid of the blues this way
Yeah, that's how we fix the blues today
It absolutely had to happen to someone today
Yeah, there's no smoking anywhere, throw it all away
Yeah, we've gone Balkan anyway, you can get rid of the blues this way
Yeah, that's how we fix the blues today, throw it all away
And its time to be doing something good

    General CommentThese might help: Banchoff-Klein mega bottle ride? Did n't know Joe was so into math, but Im not surprised.

    Thomas Francis Banchoff (born 1938) is an American mathematician specializing in geometry. He is a professor at Brown University, where he has taught since 1967. He is known for his research in differential geometry in three and four dimensions, for his efforts to develop methods of computer graphics in the early 1990s, and most recently for his pioneering work in methods of undergraduate education utilizing online resources

    In topology, a branch of mathematics, the Klein bottle /ˈklaɪn/ is an example of a non-orientable surface; it is a two-dimensional manifold against which a system for determining a normal vector cannot be consistently defined. Informally, it is a one-sided surface which, if traveled upon, could be followed back to the point of origin while flipping the traveler upside down. Other related non-orientable objects include the Möbius strip and the real projective plane. Whereas a Möbius strip is a surface with boundary, a Klein bottle has no boundary (for comparison, a sphere is an orientable surface with no boundary).

    Oh, and 'khazi' is Polari slang for toilet
