The Lyrics

The other day you know I just hit 50
And it felt like being hit by a train
I thought is this the beginning of the end
And I started to feel the pain
I thought I can't let this get to me I've got to resist
So I bought a Harley Davidson
And went out with my mates to get pissed*
But middle aged bikers are prone to forget
they're death traps - and it's an odds on bet
That I'll never make that last home run
But what the hell baby
I don't care I'm going to follow the sun

I need you now girl come ride with me
I wanna take off with you into space
Just hold on tight
God that feels so nice
Wrap your arms around my waist
Come on lets burn some rubber now the time is right
Can't you feel the rush?
you're hot for it drunk with desire
you want me to take you higher
Cos baby you're a speed freak - an easy rider
Are you ready to go down to the wire?
We're adrenaline junkies
Come on Baby let me light your fire

As we clear the bend the long lonely road
Is just begging me to let her go
As I gently ease the throttle in
I feel the blood really start to flow
Just go with it baby it's the ultimate ride
It doesn't get any better than this
Can you feel it now so deep inside
It's a moment of perfect bliss

The highway shimmers in the broken neon of the Motel Ocean View
Mirrored ceilings and king size waterbeds
I think we know what we've gotta do
I've got a line of coke I've got a hungry heart
I wanna love you with all the madness in my soul
I need you now I know it's wrong
But I can live with the pain and the guilt
It's the price that we pay it's.the deal that we've done
So baby ride with me
Maybe we can follow the sun.

Yeah, as a freewheeling rebel type myself I've been thinking about getting a bike. Um, but no way would my wife let me. Anyway, very good. Descriptive.

(SOTM-WC) I could have a fast bike if I wanted (to pedal harder.) ;) Nice job, Martha. - January 12, 2005 - Report this comment
Have you been spying on me?! This works really well as a sequel to the original. It was nice of you to remind us that pissed means drunk, but maybe you should explain what "ease the throttle in" and "burn some rubber" mean in this context. Heh heh.

This parody is more about fun than funny, but it is very well done.

I know it was her pink Davidson
Fine, shining rims
Fast, freaky fun
Boulevard of sins

We'll be goin' home
Just be me and you
Just seduce your honey with an Ocean-side view

Baby, now I wonder what it's like to have some fun on you pink Davidson, pink Davidso-o-on

Sorry, inspiration called. I liked it Martha, if that weren't obvious.
