david byrne's bicycle stolen in NYC

david byrne blog
story of stolen bike in the Gothamist

that images is a few years old
with a bicycle that also may be a few years old

that was not the bicycle that was stolen

in an effort to aid in the grieving process I have modified the the lyrics of the Talking Heads classic Psycho Killer

I cant seem to face up to the facts
Im tense and nervous and i
Cant relax
I cant sleep cause my beds on fire
Dont touch me Im a real live wire

BICYCLE STEALER
Quest que cest
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride away
BICYCLE STEALER
Quest que cest
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride away

You start a conversation you cant even finish it.
Youre talkin a lot, but youre not sayin anything.
When I have nothing to say, my lips are sealed.
Say something once, why say it again?


BICYCLE STEALER,
Quest que cest
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride away
BICYCLE STEALER
Quest que cest
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride away

(* spoken interlude in french *)

BICYCLE STEALER,
Quest que cest
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride away
BICYCLE STEALER,
Quest que cest
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride Ride away

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh....
