Those were the days

Dug these up for a post in another forum, got all nostalgic thinking about the glory days of socalmtb.

Just call me verdana.

Metallica's 'Master of Puppets' with a Mountain Bike theme

Master of Singletrack
End of the work day, crumbling away
I'm your source of total freedom
Veins that pump with fear, rolling the track clear
Riding on to your salvation
Ride it you will see
More is all you need
You're dedicated to
How it's ruling you

Come riding faster
Obey your Master
Your legs turn faster
Obey your Master
Master
Master of singletrack the eagles sing
Ruling the course and jumping your dreams
Blinded by fear, you can't see a thing
Just ride your bike, noone hears your screams
Master
Master
Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master

Singletrack's the way, never you betray
Source of life becoming clearer
Pain monopoly, ritual misery
Push till you can't take it any longer
Ride it you will see
More is all you need
You're dedicated to
How its ruling you

Come riding faster
Obey your Master
Your legs turn faster
Obey your Master
Master
Master of singletrack the eagles sing
Ruling the course and jumping your dreams
Blinded by fear, you can't see a thing
Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master
Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master



Master, Master, Where's the trail that I've been after?
Master, Master, You promised only rides
Laughter, Laughter, All I hear and see is laughter
Laughter, Laughter, they're laughing at my cries

Ride with me

The ride is worth all that, natural habitat
Just a ride without a reason
Neverending maze, drift on numbered days
Now your hate is out of season

Come riding faster
Obey your Master
Your legs turn faster
Obey your Master
Master
Master of singletrack the eagles sing
Don't let trail closures get into your dreams
Blinded by fear, you can't see a thing
Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master
Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master

Sublime's 'What I got' with a Mountain Bike theme

Like the Master of Puppets rendition, I thought this one came out nicely as well. Olbaid is the online name of a friend of mine.

---

Early in the morning
Goddamn mt bikers want to meet
crash out of bed, dress myself
and I strap shoes on my feet

Got to find a reason
a reason things went wrong
got to find a reason why I've got o l b a i d' s bong
I got a mountain bike
and I can still get high
I can ride the downhill like a mother****in' riot



Life is too short so love the bike you got
cause it might get runover
or you might get dropped
Never raced before I just ain't had the fitness
never had to battle with the sandbagging best

Take a small example
take a tidbit from me-e
take all your spare parts and give them up to charity
Singletrack's what I got
it's within my reach
and the socalmtb style's still straight from long beach

It all comes back to you
you finally get what you deserve
try and test that
you're bound to get served
my bike's what I got, don't start a riot
you feel it when the trail gets hot

lovin'
it's what I got
I said remember that
singletrack
it's what I got
I said remember that
weirdo online friends
it's what I got

that's why I don't cry, if my tire slides away
I don't get angry at the things I have to say
I don't get angry when my friends smoke pot
hit the pipe and go rolling on the rocks

Riding, fighting it's all the same
living with riding it's the only way to stay sane
let the lovin' let the lovin' come back to meee

lovin'
it's what I got
I said remember that
singletrack
it's what I got
I said remember that
weirdo online friends
it's what I got

To the tune of Disturbed, Down with the Sickness.

Down With The Singletrack

Riding down through a maze of trees
Tracing a path down the trail
It seems what's left of this sweet bike ride
just is not enough for me

Chasing down my own salvation
When suddenly it hits me
Violently it hits me (oh no)
There is no turning back now
I've found the path to get there, inside me

[Chorus:]
Get up, come on get down with the singletrack [x3]
Give up your hate, and watch love flow from me
Get up, come on get down with the singletrack
You brother get up come on get down with the singletrack
You mother get up come on get down with the singletrack
Life is the gift, that has been given to me

I can see inside you, your passion is rising
Don't try to deny what you feel
(Will you give in and see?)
Just keep on riding and you will see
the key to heaven in me

It seems like you're loving the journey
the ride just lasts forever
Riding with these hikers (oh no)
The world is a beautiful place
Now that you've found the key to heaven, in me
[Chorus x2]

Will Smith's 'Summertime' with a Mountain Bike theme

Part way through I kinda lost the rhythm, but the song still works imho. Lyrics in ~ are female vocal.

---

bikes? please...
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yeeeeeeaaaahhh
~summer summer summertime
on a secret trail of mine~

here it is, a trail, slightly transformed
just a bit of a break from the norm
just a little ride to break the monotony
of all those hardcore drops that have gotten to be
a little bit out of control, it's cool to ride
but what about a trail that soothes and moves, you just slide
give me a nice downhill singletrack
and if you can't ride it, then please get off my back
~get off my back~
think of the summers of the past
adjust my chain and ride the downhill fast
hop off the chair lifts and watch me run a record time
flow with your bike, just cruise and lay back cause this is summertime

~summer summer summertime
on a secret trail of mine
summer summer summertime
riding I think you"ll find
summer summer summertime
the answers just in time~

school is out and there's a sort of a buzz
but back then I didn't really know what it was
but now I see what heaven is
now that I've dicovered all this singletrack madness
the weather is hot and girls are dressing less
and checking out the racers to tell 'em who's best
it's a different feeling now that I'm grown,
I can drive to the bike track all on my own
back in the valley, we'd be riding the XC
cause some of the trails have just gotten to be,
a little too crowded with hikers and such,
but everyone's cool so it really shouldn't matter much
guys out riding and girls doing likewise
racing with the honey in front of you trying to look sly
and as she turns around she sees you barely keeping up,
lays down on the pedals and now you're eating her dust
I don't use Stans, Notubes liquid or any of that slime
I'm just trying to get my bike ready for the summer time

~summer summer summertime
on a secret trail of mine
summer summer summertime
riding I think you"ll find
summer summer summertime
the answers just in time~

it's late in the day and I haven't ridden my bike yet
hustle to my local to get me a short set
yeah my tires are ready, I got me a good pair
cause bike tracks these days have got sharp rocks there
lately the temperature's about 108
lay on the sunscreen for your whole family's sake
head to your pad to clean up and change once more
cause it's not quite October but there's a beerfest at 4
sitting with your friends as y'all remincise
about the days riding bikes and the first dirt you kissed
and as I think back it makes me wonder how
a simple bike ride can spark up nostalgia
while all the little kids are riding out front
little boys teasing the girls as they both learn how to jump
a local band jams and cranks out a tune
and you see that El Jefe has passed out too soon ;)

then six o'clock rolls around
you just finished wiping your bike down
it's time to cruise so you head to the summertime hangout
it looks like a bike show
everybody's bikes are lookin real fine
fresh from the bike shop they arrive just in time
every moment frontin and maxin
people worried about who's doin all the baggin'
everyone concerned with who's got the best stuff
just realize it doesn't really matter even in the rough
you see it's not about the bike you ride
it's about the way you handle it, flow and glide
don't have a bike? get a KHS, Kona or Banshee
it makes little difference I think you'll see
sitting here with the realization of what's really best
I start to feel an air of love and of happiness
and this is unrealtrip's new defintion of summer madness

~summer summer summertime
on a secret trail of mine
summer summer summertime
riding I think you"ll find
summer summer summertime
the bike is not the reason why~

Joan Osborne - God was one of us (MTB Themed)

Still trying to figure out a good ending.

--------

If God rode a bike
What kind do you think it'd be
Would he bomb down-hill
or pedal cross country
and in all his glory
if you had to race him
would you even t r y

Yeah yeah God rides great
Yeah yeah God rides smooth
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah

What if God rode bikes with us
Jumped doubles like some of us
Just a biker among the rest of us
Trying to ride his bike home

If God made a trail
What would it look like
And Would you want to ride,
If riding meant that you would have to believe
in sharing the trail with the horses and the hikers
and all the people

Yeah yeah God rides great
Yeah yeah God rides smooth
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah

What if God rode bikes with us
Bunnyhopped like some of us
Just a biker among the rest of us
Trying to ride his bike home

Trying to ride his bike home
To his private track all alone
...
...

Yeah yeah God rides great
Yeah yeah God rides smooth
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah

What if God rode bikes with us
Cleared doubles like some of us
Just a biker among the rest of us
Trying to ride his bike home

Like a holln' rollin' stone
Back up to heaven all alone
Just trying to make his way home

Nobody callin' on the phone
Except for the Pope maybe in Rome...
