151. I Know A Mouse And He Hasn't Got A House I Don't Know Why I Call Him Gerald

I've got a bike, you can ride if you like
it's got a basket, a bell that rings
and things to make it look good
I'd give it to you if I could
but I borrowed it

You're the kind of girl
that fits in with my world
I'll give you anything, everything
if you want thing
I've got a cloak, it's a bit of a joke
there's a tear up the front, it's red and black
I've had it for months
if you think it could look good
then I guess it should

I know a mouse and he hasn't got a house
I don't know why I call him Gerald
He's getting rather old but he's a good mouse

I've got a clan of gingerbread men
here are men, there are men, lots of gingerbread men
take a couple if you wish, they're on the dish

I know a room of musical tunes
some wine, some gin, most of them are clockwork
let's go into the other room and make them work

Nice Pan! It's a tricky thing that... and me, I'm glad I have a digital for repeated attempts. Makes the ratio of acceptable ones, so much higher.
As for the title: 22,000 hits for the quote on Google, brought me to realize the above lyrics are from Pink Floyd's song entitled Bike.

Not sure I understand the title but you've done a great job of panning with the bikes - how many times did the boys have to ride up and down?

Great picture - terrific bike!! A boy over the road had a Chopper and I once nearly emasculated myself trying to do some mad Evel Knievel stunt - that gear stick was a caution!

Me too the memories. I looooonnnged for a purple one when I was about ten. When I hit 40 the desire resurfaced. I was very tempted by visions of me doing one of those sideways skid/break stops outside Somerfields......... With duffle coat naturally, hanging off my head by the hood..

Nice action shot. Is that a chopper bike? Are they still making those? Wow! That brings back memories.
