The Lyrics

i like to scream
yes, yes...flyin' on a ride is keen
at the speed of sound, i shoot out of sight
to the left and then the right
so far...no fear...but i sense some danger here

well, you don't know if...things are fine
why do you risk the chance of death
on a manic theme park ride ?
you don't know how...safe you'll be
i'm just here for the screams, you see
hope this belt will harness me

close your eyes...whirl
sick inside...whirl
let this ride take you away

last night i'm headin' down the ramp
'round the bend, i swing and sway
lord, it scared the pants off me
well, sometimes, speed can take my breath away
i went...clear 'round
and then my lunch flew to the ground

well, you don't know if...things are fine
why do you risk the chance of death
on a manic theme park ride ?
you don't know how...safe you'll be
i'm just here for the screams, you see
hope this belt will harness me

close your eyes...whirl
sick inside...whirl
let this ride take you away

well, you don't know if...things are fine
why do you risk the chance of death
on a manic theme park ride ?
you don't know how...safe you'll be
i'm just here for the screams, you see
hope this belt will harness me

Alvin- This one fits just perfectly with the tone, pace and feel of the original music. This would be a great one to sing with the original song. I might fool around with that later, but I gotta hit the road in about 15 minutes, headed out the that other "Manic" ride - North on the 405 from Culver City to the San Fernando Valley. 'Manic" ? - Yes, "Manic-Depressive" - It will either take an hour to go 20 miles or 25 minutes and 3 near death incidents with amped-up caffein-addled fools in giant SUV's tail-gating me and other assorted nitwits doing crazy things on those recently width-reduced lanes that run up through the pass between Sunset and Valley Circle. Be back later if I survive and I'm not still stuck in traffic.

Great effort, flows perfectly with the original. I've got vertigo sometimes and this made me dizzy just reading. All 5's

I sang along with this and it was expertly crafted, Al! 5s.

Ah! A year and a half ago I spent the day at a theme park with three fellow Message Board members. Didn't realize how old I was getting 'til the 4th roller coaster about did me in! When you are peaking that first hill one always wonders whether the restraint is going to fail.... =:-O

Like Rick... Anyone who would even think about a theme park ride gets 5's!
