"My White Bicycle" as written by and Kenyon/burgess Hopkins....
My white bicycle, my white bicycle
Riding all around the street
Four o'clock and they're all asleep
I'm not tired and it's so late
Moving fast everything looks great.
My white bicycle, my white bicycle
See that man, he's all alone
Looks so happy but he's far from home
Ring my bell, smile at him
Better kick over his garbage bin
My white bicycle, my white bicycle
The rain comes down but I don't care
The wind is blowing in my hair
Seagulls flying in the air
My white bicycle
Policeman shouts but I don't see him
They're one thing I don't believe in
Find some judge, but it's not leavin'
Lift both hands, his head in disgrace
Shines no light upon my face
Through the darkness, we still speed
My white bicycle and me
My white bicycle, my white bicycle

    General CommentThese lyrics aren't quite correct. 4th line 2nd verse is 'Then knock over his garbage bin'. 4th verse is: "Policeman shouts but I don't see him, They're one thing I don't believe in, He'll find some charge but it's not thievin'. And then first line last verse is 'Lampost hangs it's head in disgrace'.

    This song is also a cover. Originally written by a band called Tomorrow.

    I think it's meaning is 1 of 2 things... either it's about a guy tripping on acid and riding around in the middle of the nite, or about stealing a bike and acting like a punk. Probably just written as a silly inconsequential song about stealing a bicycle and acting like a punk, but still I love this song. Dan McCafferty's voice is just freakin' amazing and makes every song he sings seem potent. Nazareth is long past their zenith, but if you haven't checked all their stuff out, you're really missing some good music, including this great song. Plus, I listened to this song (and a lot of other Naz) in high school and now it brings back lots of memories.
