I never had a sister
that you didn't like
You had three ugly brothers
but still turned out all right, yeah

I never had a girlfriend
longer than three months
you never had a boyfriend
but married on a hunch

so let's ride bikes into the sea
and catch a bus outside the reef
drive so deep that we can see
thinks that we have to get off
the bus driver laughs and he shakes his head
says, "You're okay, I drive this route everyday"
you're uneasy and you say you're scared
and if I die at least you'll die too

I never had a sister
but you, you look swell
wearing your matching shorts
as often as the mail comes

you look like Audrey Hepburn
when you get all dressed up
I have seen all your movies
'cause Audrey's a stone fox

so let's ride bikes into the sea
and catch a bus outside the reef
drive so deep where we can see
thinks that we have to get off
The bus driver laughs and he shakes his head
says, "You're okay, I drive this route everyday"
you're uneasy and you say you're scared
and if I die at least you'll die too

    General Commentas much as I love my bike, this song does make me want to ride it into the sea. it's like the pied piper, only his pipe calls to cyclists rather than rats...

    General Comment@elephant seventh:
    The line "and if I die at least you'll die too" reminds me of The Smiths indeed.
    "And if a double-decker bus crashes into us
    To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die"
    cool :)

    General CommentCorrection:

    This:
    "drive so deep where we can see
    thinks that we have to get off"

    Should be this:
    "Drive so deep that we can't see a thing
    So we have to get off"

    General CommentI heard this song on a pandora station seeded by Nausea by Beck. . . it has been stuck in my head ever since.

    Audrey IS a stone fox.

    General CommentCorrection:

    "drive so deep that we can see
    thinks that we have to get off"

    should be
    "Drive so deep that we can't see a thing so we ask to get off"
