about

An update of the 60's hit song that "even your parents could sing along to" (which meant it was terminally daggy ..see "Sadie the cleaning lady" Johnny Farnham etc…).It features the tale of two hot dames "The Town Bikes" who are hell bent on turning this town upside down and brightening our dull lives with the light from their illumunated breasts .

This song was written fast around my bass line.I wanted to have two completely different "feels" in the tune to remind of the way the Town Bikes constantly switch modes during their performances.Hence the "Noel Cowardesque" intro and end coda.

lyrics

Oh how they cheer when the town bikes appear
pink tights and hoop skirts and dildos (oh dear!)
they dance around with their steps that astound
and lashings of ginger beer!
kicked out of ballet school
two chicks! four tits! how cool!
they impart their wisdom on the masses
with wit, their moves and nice asses
Oh how they cheer when the town bikes appear
pink tights! hoop skirts! and lashings of ginger beer!
Oh how they cheer when the town bikes appear !
they dance around with steps that astound
chhh ooh ooh chhh AAH!

the good ship town bike is about to set sail
to wilder shores and beyond the pale
they'll round the horn with a jig and a reel
and roger the cabin boy will see to the keel
Oh how they cheer when the town bikes appear
pink tights! hoop skirts! and lashings of ginger beer!
Oh how they cheer when the town bikes appear !
they dance around with steps that astound
chh ooh ooh chh AAH!

Oh how they cheer when the town bikes appear!
pink tights and hoop skirts and dildos (oh dear!)
they show the way that they know is the best with the light from their illuminated breasts
