"Girl on a Bicycle" as written by and Gary Peterson Ralph Mctell....
Hey little girl on the bicycle, wheels spin like they're riding on air.
Hey little girl on the bicycle, wheels flash like the sun in her hair.
And the wheels go round but the bike has stopped moving
Trees on the river move by her.
Hey little girl on the bicycle, sun blaze in her hair like a flame,
And the river's reflecting her bicycle, and the reeds whisper her name,
And the wheels go round but the bike has stopped moving,

Trees on the river move by her.
Hey little girl on the bicycle, dressed in white, the trees were in green.
Sparkling cycling bicycle that moves through the trees like a dream
And the wheels go round and the trees have stopped moving
Suddenly she is gone.

    My OpinionSuch a Beautiful & enigmatic song; I`m surprised to find no comments.
    Only the author would know what is intended but I have two interpretations.
    The first (which I prefer) is to view it as an idyll, a dream-like vision.
    The second (which is tragic and sad) is of a terrible accident where the girl falls from her bike into the river and drowns - ("the reeds calling her name").
    The wheels of the bicycle continue to spin though she has fallen from it.
