A happy saxophone echoes the melody of this song about the joy of a woman’s relationship with a guy who loves fun, going fast, his motorcycle and her!
What a guy! “Man’s man, jean jacket cycle king — hold on to stay on, I gotta cling to him,” and “Hang on tight, ‘cause it’s cruisin’ time!” And we have a dose of reality, “He’s got a thing against sittin’ and a hard time admittin’ he’s wrong” along with the romance of “Bacon, eggs, toast, coffee, juice and a kiss”. This song is as up-tempo as Motorbike Mike is! The lively saxophone is performed by Steve Wolfe, who recorded an instrumental version of this song on “Cappuccino Music” by Wolfe and Powell (also here on CD Baby).

1. The carburator sings a cycle song
In his arms is where I belong
You know, he makes me feel small
He’s strong and he’s tall
He’s got a thing against sittin’
and a hard time admittin’ he’s wrong
2. Machine man fixer got his hands full of grime
Hang on tight ‘cause it’s cruisin’ time
He’s got a movie-star face
He digs a dirt bike race
The horsepower feelin’ makes him wanna see how fast he can climb
Bridge: Man’s man jean jacket cycle king
Hold on to stay on, I gotta cling to him
Movin’ fast — can’t be last
He’s way ahead of me!
3. Bacon, eggs, toast, coffee, juice and a kiss
Can’t mess around when I’m his bliss
He’s the center of himself
But, I’m the gold of his wealth
Blue-eyed baby sayin’ maybe I’m the best of them all!
(Repeat Verse 3)
