The Lyrics

Bum hair, lycra in dayglo
On my thigh
I can hear people say "Oh!"
As I go flying by

Bum hair sticks out of dayglo
All go "ewww"
Guess the hormones they had before
May do that to you

Someday I'll race the Tour de France
In skin-tight lycra underpants
"Behind" me
I'll be with all those cycling guys
In colours that will hurt your eyes
If theirs don't blind me

Bum hair, lycra in dayglo
Just in front
People don't think they're gay, no
Only a bunch of... cyclists

Some day I'll mainline nandrolone,
Side orders of testosterone
Won't hurt me
Before the race has fully gawn
I'll proudly wear my maillot jaune
Dress sense deserts me

Clad in lycra and dayglo
Cyclists ride
If Mercx, Armstrong and Hinault
Can, then oh why can't I

If hopped-up druggie cyclists ride
In skin-tight dayglo
why, oh why can't I?

Please note, I am not suggesting that Eddie Mercx, Lance Armstrong and Bernard Hinault, three of the greatest cyclists, ever, were hopped-up drug-takers. Even if everyone else was...

Funny stuff Phil... you've certainly taken this OS to new highs/the next stage... me thinks Ms. Garland is 'spinning' in her grave!

Funny idea, funny content, just plain funny

Loved that you didn't "reveal" the theme until Verse 3.... is there any irony in that the stereotypical Garland /Minelli fan probably dresses like that even when not "cycling"? 222... but look! Coupla shots of Dianabol and.... they popped into Fives!
