Here's what happened:
Duck on Bike! Duck on Bike!
Carpets up and bar the doorway
Wind him up and let him pedal
Duck on Bike is coming your way!
Cats are grinning, hats are spinning
As his bike he pedals wildly
Cats pursue, their whiskers twitching
Duck's a hit to put it mildly!
With his beak and turned up tail
With his whirling hat propeller
All observing cannot fail
But to love the little feller.
Revving round the Christmas tree
Flippers pumping to the last
Duck on Bike makes for the kitchen
Gee that Duck can pedal fast!
Whizzes past the fridge and blender
Past the drain board and the range
Duck on Bike is on a bender
Alert the New York Stock Exchange!
Fie what danger may befall him
As he speeds along life's journey
Duck on Bike must heed his callin'
Will he end up on a gurney?
Icarus was felled in terror
As he made his fateful hike
Hubris was his final error
So it is with Duck on Bike
Tumbling free in great upheaval
Off the countertop he soars
Like his hero, Ev' Knievil
Duck on Bike falls to the floor!
Hindsight's always 20/20
Useless to the case at hand
If he'd only take'n his Paxil
Duck on Bike has broke his axle!
Elmer's and Gorilla Glue
Tape and chewing gum alike
None will fix the broken wheelbase
Duck can no more ride his Bike!
Now his racing days are over
Yet he joins in Christmas glee
Set astride the Bike in Question
As an ornament on the tree.
On the lower branches. He's heavy!
