5. ROADSTERS: 1900 onwards

Whoop la, out of the way

We come with lightning speed

There’s nothing like a rattling gait

Of the flying velocipede.

It never runs away

And it doesn’t take much to feed

It’s thoroughly reliable

The new velocipede.

Upon the way you work your legs

And feet depends its speed

And that’s about the total off

The new velocipede…
