"A Boy Needs A Bike" lyrics

A Boy Needs A Bike

Pop works in the shop till late
Mom's on the phone and she's kind of irate
Sally's doing somersaults on the lawn
Pop slams open the front screen door
Just to scare mom, she says
"What the hell'd you do that for?"
He washes his dirty hands in the sink

Things around the table are kinda rough
Ma says it's pa, pa says times are just tough
But me and Sally don't say much of nothing at all
And the garage door light brightens up the night
Pa always works on cars when he gets in a fight
As if he could figure out that woman by working on that old car

He said a car can cure any problem at all
Cause seeing all those parts makes a fight look so small
But I wish he'd put me and Sally in the backseat
And drive us away
That's when he sits me down
Said he's gonna teach me about life
He said a man needs a car and a boy needs a bike
I got my first taste of freedom
Beneath the light of the moon

But if it were me
I'd have the guts
I'd put to test
Those bolts and nuts
And ride away so fast, so far

We put away our tools and go back inside
Mom feels left out and now she's starting to cry
I wonder if all girls are crazy this way
I wish that pops would just get a spine
I said "I know it's kinda little
But you can borrow mine"
He just smiles and says
"Your mom means well, son"

You see, most times are good
It's just some that are lean
But love makes up for those times in between
He got a tear in his eye
As he took mama's hand
Said one day I'd understand

If it were me
I'd have the guts
I'd put to test
Those bolts and nuts
And ride away so fast, so far
Ride away so fast, so far
Ride
