The summer rain is like soft kisses,
Our pulsing wheels
Make a rhythmic pattern
While we share
The sounds and the silence.
The western sky is a rainbow
The rain is lighter, and with you
I just carry on
Biking in the rain.
Frequent cheeseburgers and chips
Makes you heavy at the hips,
Repeated doses of vindaloo
Sticks to your arteries like glue;
Thick bars of sweet
With a drink to match,
Might propel you into
The diabetic patch.
Smoking is sin, fats taboo
Yes, it’s you I am talking to.
I keep sunshine in my pockets
If you want I will give you some
But you will have to please me first
With a song when you next come
They come in coloured packets
For the time of the day
There is also one for night-time
I know what you will say
If you wanted to celebrate
Or were down in the dumps
A few packets of sunshine
Won't fail to bring the bumps
Let me make it clear though
I don't sell this for a fee
You only get it from me
If you please me.
