Monday Monday: Daniel Johnston – Speeding Motorcycle

Even though Dunn made this comment, it’s worth repeating:

Daniel: “What’s that one you all want to hear?”


Hope you’re weekend was long enough, and if it wasn’t then you’re in the same boat as everyone else. Maybe we should all quit out jobs and start a company of our own. I don’t know what we’d do, manifest dreams? Create a new fabric softener that doesn’t promise more fluffiness than it can produce? Low carb cup cakes? It’s another week and time for more bad ideas. Speaking of bad ideas, did you check out my new song this weekend? Check it here on shortwave or even over on soundcloud. Hell check out all of my crap on soundcloud if you want to! Don’t want to? That’s cool. PAX East is happening this weekend and Alex is heading up to check it out and hopefully conduct a few interviews while there. Adam is rocking hard, as Adam does. Pete says he’s gonna start writing soon, and hopefully he does. McShane is probably watching the Mets and Rangers. Russ is most likely eating something delicious and making the world jealous right now. Not sure the point saying all that, but hey, it’s Monday.

Speeding motorcycle, won’t you change me?
Speeding motorcycle, won’t you change me?
In a world of funny changes
Speeding motorcycle, won’t you change me?
Speeding motorcycle of my heart
Speeding motorcycle; always changing me
Speeding motorcycle, don’t you drive recklessly
Speeding motorcycle of my heart
Pretty girls have taken you for a ride
Hurt you deep inside but you never slowed down
Speeding motorcycle in my heart
Speeding motorcycle, let’s speed smart
‘Cause we don’t want to wreck but
We can do a lot of tricks
We don’t have to break our necks
To get our kicks
Speeding motorcycle, the road is ours
Speeding motorcycle, let’s speed some more
‘Cause we don’t need reason and we don’t need logic
We’ve got feeling and we’re dang proud of it
Speeding motorcycle, there’s nothing you can’t do
Speeding motorcycle, I love you
Speeding motorcycle, let’s just go
Speeding motorcycle
Let’s go let’s go let’s go
Oo oo
