Lost Alamos: Music

Barbie Try

(Lost Alamos)
© Brian Daniell 2009 ASCAP


Recorded live at Harmony Village, Golden CO, April 30, 2011. What can I say? I ride a bike around Boulder, and really, what the hell am I thinking? But I guess this song would be appropriate for any American city.

 

Out on my bicycle riding free

Good for the planet, good for me

Wave to the oil well, wave to the tree

Me and my bicycle ride for free

Ooh, ride for free, Ooh-ooh--ooh, ride for free

Ooh, ride for free, Ooh-ooh--ooh, ride for free

 

Barbie pretty hair, Barbie eyes so blue

In the Barbie head--not a clue

Barbie no talk me, Barbie no talk you

Barbie talk all day when nothing new

Ooh, nothing new, Ooh-ooh--ooh, nothing new

Ooh, ride for free, Ooh-ooh—ride for free

 

Out on my bicycle riding free

Good for the planet, good for me

Wave to the monkey, wave to manatee

Me and my bicycle ride for free

Ooh, manatee, Ooh-ooh--ooh, manatee

Ooh, manatee, Ooh-ooh--ooh, manatee

Nothing new . . .

Ride for free . . .

 

Barbie sad lady live all alone

Four little kids and a red cellphone

Barbie drive the kids talkin’ all alone

Barbie head stuck to the red cellphone

Ooh, red cellphone, Ooh-ooh--ooh, red cellphone

Nothing new . . .

Ride for free . . .

Manatee . . .

 

Out on my bicycle riding free

Good for the planet, good for me

I see Barbie--Barbie don’t see me

Barbie try to kill me with the SUV

What?

Barbie try to kill me with the SUV

What?

Barbie try to kill me with the SUV

 

Ooh, swerved at me, Barbie try to kill me with the SUV

Ooh, Swerved at me, Barbie try to kill me with the SUV

Ooh, Barbie try, Barbie try to kill me with the SUV

 

Out on my bicycle riding free

Good for the planet, good for me

Wave to the oil well, wave to the tree

Me and my bicycle ride for free

Ooh, ride for free, Ooh-ooh--ooh, ride for free

Ooh, nothing new, Ooh-ooh--ooh, nothing new

Ooh, manatee, Ooh-ooh--ooh, manatee

Ride for free

Red cellphone

Swerved at me

Barbie try to kill me with the SUV

Barbie try to kill me with the SUV

Barbie try to kill me with the SUV
