Enjoying the Ride

February 19, 2008

Just noticed that one of my live staples doesn’t have its lyrics on the site. Ought to change that. No MP3.

Buddy, where’s the fire? You’re pedalling fit to bust
With your lycra gear and clip-on shoes, you leave me in your dust
But I’m not trying to catch you, I’m way too dignified
I’m just out in the sunshine, enjoying the ride.

Enjoying the ride, all of those thunderclouds gathering in the sky
Are going to take a detour and pass me right on by
But if it rains, I’ll get wet – then I’ll cycle until I’m dry
I’m just out in the sunshine, enjoying the ride.

I’ve been coming out lately with the raw end of the deal
So I keep my feet in motion and follow my front wheel
The wind in my face is drying all those tears I cried
I’m just out in the sunshine, enjoying the ride.

Enjoying the ride, up on the shoulder, a white line as my guide
My mind is clear and peaceful, my eyes are open wide
Anything life throws at me, I’ll take it in my stride
I’m just out in the sunshine, enjoying the ride.
