The bicycle wheels turn round and round
getting you further away from the world
Leaving no trace, not even a sound

New adventures with stories abound
the distance bringing you closer together
The bicycle wheels turn round and round

Treasures lost by others are found
in places most unexpected to be
Leaving no trace, not even a sound

Passing by homes, cars, and a hound
a blurry sight as you race quickly by
The bicycle wheels turn round and round

The winner of the race will soon be crowned
For everyone has their own finish line
Leaving no trace, not even a sound

There is a world to be discovered
if only you put yourself forward to find it
The bicycle wheels turn round and round
Leaving no trace, not even a sound.

The Big Wheel

The sight from the tower is covered in hues
The silver and sparkle accented in blues
The ride on the wheel is remarkably fine
Next thing I need is a big glass of wine
