to the tune of “Working Class Hero” by John Lennon

Bicycle Hero is Something To Be

As soon as you’re born they expect you to drive,

Bombarded with ads every day you’re alive,

And the unspoken message is that cars help you thrive.

A bicycle hero is something to be

And when you get older they drive you to school,

Nobody walks, because walking’s not cool,

And if you ride a bike then they think you’re a fool.

A bicycle hero is something to be

When they’ve brainwashed and scared you for twenty odd years,

With lies about safety and needed head gear,

You can’t ever bike there, you’re so full of fear.

A bicycle hero is something to be

They keep you filled with hype about air quality,

You think all that’s needed is more mpg,

And that hole in the ozone is just fantasy.

A bicycle hero is something to be

With your mopeds and golf carts and other EV’s

You think you’re so clever and carless and free

You’re still fricking drivers as far as I can see

A bicycle hero is something to be

one more verse still working on it
