On the way to work

I was riding my Lightfoot Magnum tricycle to work yesterday morning when new words to the Janis Joplin song "Mercedes Benz" came to my head:

Oh lord, won’t you buy me a Lightfoot Magnum?
My friends all ride Whizwheels, I must have some fun.
Been green all my lifetime, my friends think I’m dumb.
So lord, won’t you buy me a Lightfoot Magnum?

Oh lord, won’t you buy me a rooftop PV?
E - mission credits are waiting to find me.
I wait for delivery and drink herbal tea.
So oh lord, won’t you buy me a rooftop PV?

Oh lord, won’t you buy me a field that’s not brown?
I’m counting on you, lord, please don’t let me down.
Prove that you love me and buy green field ground.
Oh lord, won’t you buy me a field that’s not brown?

Oh lord, won’t you buy me a Lightfoot Magnum?
My friends all ride Whizwheels, I must have some fun.
Been green all my lifetime, my friends think I’m dumb.
So lord, won’t you buy me a Lightfoot Magnum?


To quote Kermit the frog, "Its not easy being green".
