Ode to Dad (or, Tour de France: A Day in the Life of a Fan)
My dad he is a funny man
He's not like most a football fan
What he likes is cycle racing
That's the sport that gets his rating.
He pedals along with the stars on the telly
While sat on the sofa he gives it some welly
He keeps up with Lance Armstrong mile for mile
As he travels across our room with panache and style.
Now Miguel Indurian had tremendous power
As he reached up to speeds of 50 miles per hour
But he couldn't beat Dad with the sofa unstable
As he ploughs right on through our coffee table.
So if you come to our house and you think it's weird
That we have the world's only sofa that's geared
Just look at my dad in his cycle pants
And you'll understand he's ready for the Tour de France.
