Brand New Key

As I mentioned a couple of posts ago I’ve recently embraced my bicycle spirit and have been doing a lot of riding around Los Angeles.

And as I mentioned before I’ve been singing a lot of bicycle songs as I’ve pedaled my way into stronger thighs.

Today between bike rides I ventured over to youtube and searched for bicycle song videos and found a great video of Melanie performing her 70s worldwide hit “Brand New Key.”

Interesting note: This song was banned from some radio stations because some people interpreted the lyrics as being sexual innuendo. Oh the 70s...



I rode my bicycle past your window last night
I roller skated to your door at daylight
It almost seems like you're avoiding me
I'm okay alone, but you got something I need

Well, I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key
I think that we should get together and try them out you see
I been looking around awhile
You got something for me
Oh! I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key

I ride my bike, I roller skate, don't drive no car
Don't go too fast, but I go pretty far
For somebody who don't drive
I been all around the world
Some people say, I done all right for a girl

Well, I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key
I think that we should get together and try them out you see
I been looking around awhile
You got something for me
Oh! I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key

I asked your mother if you were at home
She said, yes .. but you weren't alone
Oh, sometimes I think that you're avoiding me
I'm okay alone, but you've got something I need

Well, I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key
I think that we should get together and try them out to see
La la la la la la la la, la la la la la la
Oh! I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key
