George Formby TT Riding

"Ridin in the TT races"

If there's one thing that I like' it's riding around on my motorbike
I'm a speed king when I once begin.
I once won first prize, two and six, I know all the dirt bike dirty tricks.
I'm a marvel when I'm out to win.
In a fifty mile race, I am the best I ride five miles and skid the rest.

CHORUS
So come along and see me riding in the TT races.
Easier than hopscotch beating all the top notch aces

I've been riding all my life I started quite small
I've ridden fairy cycles aye and scooters and all
Hear the people cheer me when they see me steering backwards
Down the hill I go at breakneck speed
See me coming down the street, with the women posed on the pillion seat
Oh come along and see me riding at the TT race

Come along and see me riding in the TT races.
Easier than hopscotch beating all the top notch aces
Once my bike was hard to ride but I didn't mind
Until I found it'd hitched a charabanc on behind
Everybody scaring I'm such a daring rider
My insides rattles when I go the pace
My ribs begin to shake about, there's all my spare parts sticking out
Oh come along and see me riding in the TT race
(Big ukelele solo)

With me gears in reverse, the other way around I'll finish first
So come along and see me riding in the TT race
HA -Ha-HA -Ha-ha aha ha ha ha
