Lullaby Of Foo

Now I lay me down to sleep
Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm
keep my carbon from any harm

Good Night Road Bike
Good Night Moutain Bike
Good night all you Foosters
And good night Moon

We had a witch here in the Spings, but I'm sorry to say we stoned her back in 89.

A shame really....seemed like a nice girl.
