    ♫♫ Elderly Mechanic Behind the Counter in a Small Bike Shop ♫♫
    I seem to recognize your full-face
    Helmet smells like a yeti
    I can seem to taste it
    Cannot find the replacement hanger for my frame
    Repair costs are catching up with me
    All these charges taking place
    I wish I'd seen the price
    But no one's ever discounted me
    Parts I thought were great, failed anyway
    Parts I thought were great, failed anyway
    I swear, I recognize your bike
    Memories of RaceFace dropper posts slowly raising
    Me, you wouldn't recall for I've kept my reflectors on
    It's hard when you're still running tubes
    I've crashed by not riding hard at all
    Small bump predicts my fall
    Perhaps that's what everyone wants to see
    I just want to scream "Help me!"
    My God it's bleeding so bad
    Never dreamed you'd see the bone
    But now here you are and here I am
    Parts I thought were great, failed anyway
    Parts I thought were great, failed anyway

    There was a mechanic from Brussels
    Who was proud of using his muscles
    My pedals so tight
    I tried with my might
    That red stuff is my corpuscles.

    I love that PJ song. It reminds me of the mom of a friend from high school who worked at the diner in my home town. I wouldnít be surprised if sheís still there. Itís been 20+ years.

    I seem to recognize your frame,
    Haunting, familiar yet, I canít seem to place it,
    Cannot find the candle of thought to light the brand,
    Crashes are catchin up with me
    All these changes taking place, I wish Iíd seen the trail
    But no ones ever taken me
    Anodized parts they fade, fade away
    Anodized parts they fade, fade away
    I swear I recognize your wheels
    Tire treads like fingerprints, are slowly raising
    Me you wouldnít recall, for Iím not my former
    Itís hard when youíre stuck behind the stand
    I change by not changing at all
    Market predicts my fate
    Perhaps thatís what no one wants to see
    I just wanna scream wake up!
    Been like this for so long
    Never dreamed itíd end here
    But now here we are, and itís not getting better
    Anodized parts they fade, fade away
    Anodized parts they fade, fade away
    Anodized parts they fade, fade away
    Anodized parts they fade, fade away
    Anodized parts they fade, fade away
    Anodized parts they fade, fade away
    Anodized parts they fade, fade away
    Anodized parts they fade

    Smells like tri-flow.
    No way I could do all the lyrics, I'm impressed with above, nicely done. One of my favorite PJ songs.

    (Speaking of, have you heard the new one? Yuk)
