Two Wheel Tango

Words & Melody: Marie-Lynn Hammond, 1994
Arranged: Greg Furlong, 1999
Additional lyrics: Miguel Heatwole, 2009

Those clingy black shorts they wear
The tanned and bony knees they bare
The helmets, leather gloves and pumps
The fanny packs upon their rumps
Oh, we like, we like, we like - a man on a bike!

Even in a navy three-piece suit
With a briefcase on the carrier to boot
A silver clip encircling the shin
To neatly tuck the pant leg in
Oh I like, I like, I like - a man on a bike!

[Oh she likes, she likes, she likes
Gentlemen on bikes]
[I'm sentimental 'bout a bike!]

Something ‘bout a man on a bicycle
That’s both naughty yet nice-icle
The friendly ‘Hi’s!
The muscled thighs
Oh we melt just like an icicle
Around a man on a bicycle

When it comes to the art of seduction
By now you must have made the deduction
That a fellow in a car doesn’t get very far with me
Proving once again that less is more
I say two wheels are much hotter than four
And a 5 speed or a 10 speed gives me all the speed I really need
To drive me to ecstasy!

Oh it feels so good to ogle a pair of wheels
And it's so noble to refuse to fool with carbon fuel
That's why I like a man on a bike!

What a thrilling non-polluting sight
When we’re pedalling with all our might
Crouched like panthers over handlebars
Trying not to be run down by cars
Oh they like, I like, I like - a man on a bike!

I just know they must be special guys
I confess they make me fantasise
Keep your movie stars for what they’re worth
Give me a man who wants to save the earth
Oh I like, I like, I like - a man on a bike!

Oh, I like, I really like - a man on a bike!
Yes, we like, we like, we like - a man on a bike!
