lyrics

Poor little motorbike
You never get where you'd like
The weather's never bullseye
To really take off
Gusts off the big trucks
Merges through the loose stuff
Right back to where you came from
With a little less tread

Tearing through the moonlight
The night owl's drunk night
Who forget you once you're out of sight
Then the stars go down
You're a bonafide blaster
Spirited and registered
A quarter-ton gumption tester
Honest as Mary

Just to be turning it out, out, out
Just to be turning it round, round, round, round

Shot out the bicentennial
Manual, and bellyful
Of moxie so perennial
At least so far
Woe, to hash the rare electric bug
The mother's scowls, ears plugged
The disappearance of the run-amoks
While mechanics moves on

Two crowing bari saxes
Under waves of wild cymbal crashes
Endless and fantastic
Splitting the air in two
Poor little motorcycle
Four-cylinder roman candle
Specialer than a rider can handle
Old Jap Soul

Just to be burning it out, out, out
Just to be turning it round, round, round, round

Poor little motorbike
You never get where you'd like
The weather's never bullseye
To really take off
Gusts off the big trucks
Merges through the loose stuff
Right back to where you came from
With a little less tread
