The Lyrics

Not a love song from Pee-Wee Herman. Much closer to a sequel to Johnny D's classic "Pay THIS for Gasoline, Man?"
(guitar opening)

If I could save time with the pedal
the first thing that I'd have to do
is to buy me a helmet and chain
so I'd lock up the bike
for when I'd visit you.

If I tried to save all the money
that I'd spent on that gasoline goo
I would be on the road for eternity
but worth it babe
just to spend time with you.

But there never seems to be enough time
to get where you wanna go
on a bicycle.

I rode around enough to know
that you're the one I wanna go
down trails with.

(instrumental break)

If I had a box just for bike tools
to fix it so I could ride through
I would ride through the plains
and the mountains so rocky and then
at last I'd get to you.

But there never seems to be enough time
to get where you wanna go
on a bicycle.

I rode around enough to know
that you're the one I wanna go
down trails with.

(instrumental close)

Thanks for reminding me: my bike needs a tune-up. Nice tune.
