Collabs welcome for 50/90 as always, please check with me first that no one else has claimed it Smile

Lyrics: 

I've a sweet little bike called a Triumph
Who roars through the night in defiance
(motorbike revving sounds here)
It's got chrome on it's rear
Well polished don't fear
It's a well loved old special appliance

Ho hum this is such wonderful fun
Ho hum ride off to the setting sun
I, love, the freedom of flying along
Fee, ling, wi-ld and awesomely strong

It's got brakes that can stop on a penny
Unless I've had one drink too many
("Bottoms up" said by a drunk voice)
Then all bets are off
And the sign of the cross
Won't save me from police antennae

Ho hum this is such wonderful fun
Ho hum ride off to the setting sun
I, love, the freedom of flying along
Fee, ling, wi-ld and awesomely strong

Singing into my helmet is normal
I'm nothing if not quite informal
(bad singing here in a different voice)
If a bird comes too close
While I'm racing the roads
The carnage is something quite awful

Ho hum this is such wonderful fun
Ho hum ride off to the setting sun
I, love, the freedom of flying along
Fee, ling, wi-ld and awesomely strong



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I like the carefree spirit of this. Humor too! It's like the bike is an old friend and they're just going for a ride. I hope to hear it as your audio additions would define the feeling of freedom even more. Good job.

Such great rhythm - and the lyrics really have personality! Nice work!

Such a terrific sense of the road and of the wind flowing through my beard as I ride! (:D) The "stage directions" are fun too - I like theatrical songs, and those really add to it (I can "hear" it perfectly)!

Haa! That ho hum part is the best!

Such great fun... this SONG that is! All the verses just ooze that juvenile fun... drink a bit too much, drive through a bird, crash to a patrol car, and barf into your helmet.

I gotta get me one of those Trimphs... or a Suzuki... Indian? Something or another.

I'm a bit late with the feedback but I really like your use of rhymes and rhyme scheme. Funny story and great addition with the directions to show us your vision.

Oh, nearly brought a tear to my eye. I miss my 2007 bonneville so much. White with an orange stripe. We had such fun. Sad
You captured that joy perfectly. Thanks.
