The Lyrics

I wasn't sure whether to post this one, seeing as I've done this song pretty much to death... but as a public safety announcement, I thought WTF.. I've been teaching a biking basics course recently, and at the start of each session we have to check the bikes over. This covers pretty much the entire safety check.
Make sure the wheels both stop when you're braking
Tyres are not soft and in need of inflating
Pedals don't rattle, reflector reflects
These are a few of your bicycle checks

Make sure your saddle is spot on the right height
Toes on the ground mean that you can alight right
Chain has been oiled, not covered in rust
These are the bicycle checks and you must:

Make sure your bike helmet fits with no wobbling
No tyre bald patches - That's just the jobbling
Handlebars must not be loose - not at all
These are the checks to make sure you don't fall

And your light lights
And your bell dings
Spokes ain't bent, undone
So now you've completed your bicycle checks
Go get on your bike - have fun

Phil, maybe you should have taken this one in for repairs: not one of your best mate... but hey, I've just realised that my posting for today is rubbish, so who am I to talk? 533

Most of mine are rubbish too, but this one needs some work. 4-3-3. Hey, if you do it about cars and tie in how gas prices are making all us motorists go without eating, I think you might have a hit.

Yeah, this one's supposed to be useful rather than funny... next one ain't exactly hilarious either (but could also be useful if you're studying science at school). 2nz- if you're worrying about US gas prices, you're still paying less than half what we do over here

Then... my statement about gas is all the more valid over there, right? (And by 'there' I mean of course... where you are)

I thought this was quite good! Maybe those 3's were for the 'mis-spelling' of 'tyres' - hee hee. ;-)

Nice job, Phil; however, I vote 4-5-5 because it wasn't quite complete. Meriadoc: "tyres" is the U.K. spelling of "tires".

It's got all the required verses: in the original it's the same three verses repeated.. although in the other twenty-three times I parodied this song, I've done six different verses, I didn't think it appropriate for this song as I've included everything in the checklist. BTW, I think that (even though an American, IIRC) Merry is perfectly aware of how to spell "tyres" both here and over there... hence the giggle at the end.

Sorry about that; I'm just used to it being longer. All the other parodies on this site (of this song) have more verses after the bridge. But I did enjoy it; that's why I voted 5's in the "how funny" and "overall" categories. I guess three verses is enough. ;D
