The Lyrics

A bit like "Bum hair, lycra in dayglo", this one started off as being a song about one of the enduring images of the Tour de France. But then I read this wiki page about the history of drug taking in the Tour: have to admit I hadn't realized that for all the modern-day scandals about performance-enhancing drugs, it has *always* been this way.

All the substances mentioned below are ones that people have actually been shown to have taken during the Tour de France - there is some repetition, I know, but that kind of mirrors real life :-)

The "Soigneur" mentioned is the chap who looks after a cyclist (translation is "Carer") - typically these are the guys supplying the drugs and trying to help their cyclists beat the drug tests.
Dayglo, Day-ay-ay-glo
Dayglo bum and me on a hormone
Dayglo, Day-ay-ay-glo
Dayglo bum and me on a hormone

Wear green lycra on me bum
Dayglo bum and me on cortisone
Ride bicycle till de finish come
Dayglo bum and me on cortisone

Come, Monsieur soigneur man, give me a transfusion
Dayglo bum, me on clenbuterol
Come, Monsieur soigneur man, give me de amphetamines
Dayglo bum, me on clenbuterol

In first place, second place, third place - drugs!
Dayglo bum and me on ronicol
Fifth place, seventh place, tenth place - drugs!
Dayglo bum and me on ronicol

Day, me say Day-ay-ay-glo
Dayglo bum, me on testosterone
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day
Dayglo bum, me on testosterone

Condom filled with someone else's urine
Dayglo bum, me on clenbuterol
Take de piss out of mandat'ry drug testing
Dayglo bum, me on clenbuterol

With strychnine, bee sting, cocaine - drugs!
Dayglo bum and me on EPO
Even Nitroglycerine - drugs
Dayglo bum and me on EPO

Day, me say Day-ay-ay-glo
Dayglo bum and me on nandrolone
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day
Dayglo bum and me on nandrolone

Come, Monsieur soigneur man, gimme shot of palfium
Dayglo bum and me on nandrolone
Yum: ether, chloroform, human growth hormone
Dayglo bum and me on nandrolone

Dayglo, Day-ay-ay-glo
Dayglo bum and me on nandrolone
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day....ay-ay-glo
Dayglo bum and me on nandrolone

Sounds like the "Tour de Colombia". Maybe the cartels can compete by having the cyclists wear their logos on their shirts and helmets. I mean, if a race car can run around the NASCAR track with a Viagra logo.

Patrick - Columbia's got some catching up to do... but I do like the idea of NASCAR viagra sponsorship.. should lead to some stiff competition
