Poppin’ Wheelies

by Kara Barnard

Black light on the wall, strobe light tick-tick-ticking
Swaysies got a watch that really takes a lickin’
Grab a carpet rake, Jake, and run it through the shag
You can stand in line and wait for the feelies, I’m poppin’ wheelies.

Yellow smiley face, Bonaduchie buses
Have a sugar coated honey cone keep on truckin’ princess phone home day
You can be what you like on a banana seat bike
You can stand in line and wait for the feelies, I’m poppin’ wheelies.

Freddie got the funkie and ordered us a monkey
From a page of a comic book
The monkey went to classes wearin’ X-ray glasses
And a Daniel Boone ‘coon plume on the top of his little monkey mop

Gold Key comic books, Alfred on the Mad mag
Mod Squad on the wall, and a yellow bean bag chair
Hair-Bear got his bunches, got his boxes full of lunches
You can stand in line and wait for the feelies, I’m poppin’ wheelies.

Freddie got the funkie and ordered us a monkey
From a page of a comic book
The monkey went to classes wearin’ X-ray glasses
And a Daniel Boone ‘coon plume on the top of his little monkey mop

You are the Kukla to my Fran, the Jane to my Rusty
The G.I. to my Joe, the Go West to my Jane
On a Willie Wonka road, with a giant fuchsia toad
And a checkered vest and shiny spats and a Cat In The Hat kinda hat

Freddie got the funkie and ordered us a monkey
From a page of a comic book
The monkey went to classes wearin’ X-ray glasses
And a Daniel Boone ‘coon plume on the top of his little monkey mop.
