Here she comes in a suit and tie
Shepard’s bush and a leopard’s pie
She marching to the funky beat of
James Brown and his dancing feet
Gonna set your fish on fire
Pistol whipping of desire
So please do not resist your fate
I’ll pick you up yes it’s a date

How could I forget to mention the bicycle is a good invention
Sitting there in a silent movie
Beside the only girl who really ever moved me
Happy days but sad I’m facin
Heaven knows that I’m on the case
How could I forget to mention the bicycle?

Somebody told the world
The beauty of your verse
My girl I heard it first
The beauty of your verse

A sticky finger and a wicked taste
Gotta a lot of love and a lyrical case
Be sure to write it in your book
I promise not to look
Wanna smell your sunny face
Funny place but it’s never a waste
I’d hop this fence to make amends
I hope this movie never ends

How could I forget to mention the bicycle is a good invention
Make it up makin you my business
A funny buttercup but I let her forgiveness
Happy days but sad I’m facin
Heaven knows that I’m on the case
How could I forget to mention the bicycle?

Somebody told the world
The beauty of your verse
My girl I heard it first
The beauty of your verse

Somebody told the world
The beauty of your verse
My girl I heard it first
The beauty of your verse

    General Commenti think hes talking about a relationship thats killing him. how he says "happy days but sad I'm facin" seems like its the "good times" of his life but hes not enjoying them

    General Commenti think this song is about having no idea where he is at a point and realising the thing he is missing is this girl, then the weirdness or slight oddness in her that someone would not usually find the beauty in but she's what he's missing. gosh man only 3 comments? the bicycle is a good invention guys.

    General CommentThis song is awesome! After hearing the 30-second sample on iTunes, I decided I just HAD to get hold of it, and eventually I did through Wippit.com. Like Lorrie commented above, the bicycle IS a good invention!

    General CommentI think hes talking about how he met a great girl, and was really in love with her, maybe even taking her virginity-- but he had his own path to go on and his own troubles to face and couldnt be with her because of it.... and that he still thinks highly of her and remembers when they were together and he had nothing but a bicycle...maybe im overly thinking it...eh.

    General CommentI think that this song might be talking about a young relationship. It begins with him asking a girl out on a date. the part about the bicycle makes me think about what is maybe silly or contrived attempts at conversation. like he was thinking hard about what he would say to her on the date, but forgot. i think it is a song about innocent relationship. together in a silent movie, not a silentmovie but a movie without conversation, he tries to woo her but messes up, his happiness become sad when he cannot spur conversation as he had planned. he completely looses the girls when the world learns of her beauty. if he had remembered to mention the bicycle he might have had a chance to make conversation...and maybe continued the relationship.

    but i am sort of a pessimist.

    General CommentThe "girl" in the song is obviously the bicycle. He's fallen in love with his bike and wrote a song about how great a lover it is. DUH!
