Funky Moped by Jasper Carrott

1n September 1975 Jasper Carrott's song "Funky Moped" rose to #5 on the UK top 40 charts. Nigel who runs www.yearsofgold.uk offers an explanation for the popularity of this unusual single.

"Jasper appeared on Top Of The Pops he always performed "Funky Moped", and that was also the one played on the top 20. Alas no one liked it, so he needn't have bothered. People were buying it for "Magic Roundabout" which wasn't a song at all. It was in fact one of his comedy routines, but one that couldn't possibly be aired when children may have been listening (Radio one were quite responsible then, they wouldn't even play records that might have encouraged drug taking as they do now). It was based on the popular children's TV show by the same name, but in this version Dougal the dog empties his bladder over Florence, and Florence 'gets off' with Dylan the spaced out rabbit. Jasper reached number five and did not hit the chart again."

Funky Moped Lyrics

The lights were groovy colours,
The band was playin' slow,
We danced just one dance together,
Then she said...
I've Gotta Go Now.

I brushed away a tear drop,
And followed her outside,
Where a long haired yob on a cycle was waiting to gi'e her a ride,
I'll never forget, that freak she went with,
Tell him he'd better leave town,
Cos as soon as me moped's front mud guard is fixed,
Gonna find the creep and put him down.
(Down Down)

When I get me moped out on the road I'm gonna ride ride ride,
When I get me moped out on the road I'm gonna ride ride ride,
When I get me moped out on the road, aint nobody gonna tell mee where to go no
When I get me moped out on the road I'm gonna ride ride ride.
(Funky Moped)

[Chorus]
Blue Funky Moped,
Blue Funky Moped,
Blue Funky Moped,
Blue Funky Moped,

Move move move move move funky moped go.
(Funky Moped)

When I'm on me moped rockin' and a sockin' I'll ride ride ride,
When I'm on me moped rockin' and a sockin' I'll ride ride ride,
When I'm on me moped rockin' and a sockin', everywhere I go the chicks are movin and a groovin,

Crazy Frog Ringtone

The crazy frog is not a song about a moped but rather an irritating imitation of a two-stroke engine. The original sound file has been turned into a mobile ringtone as well as spawning an entire crazy frog remix-album

Bowling for Soup - Girl all the Bad Guys Want - Drink Enough to Dance (2002)

Pop song about the geeky guy want to be with the hot hard core girl has the following lyrics:

Now I am watchin' wrestling
Tryin' to be a tough guy
Listenin' to rap metal
Turntables in my eyes
I can't grow a mustache
And I ain't got no season pass
All I got's a moped...moped....moped.....

Kent Blander - Dave B

While this song does not actually mention mopeds, it is based on a true story involving the hit and run accident of Dave B of the Decepticons. The song can be heard on the band's Myspace.

Lyrics:
I know we've never met
But your accident I could never forget
That SUV mowed you down
And now they're looking for him all over town
I hope they find him and you get revenge
Another hit and run but on them again
Let's track them down, see this through
And maybe someday I'll get to meet you

Get well soon Dave Brzezicki
I don't know how to pronounce your last name
But I hope you're feeling fine

Jimmy Fallon - Road Rage

Lyrics:
Road Rage
My knuckles are white and my face is bright red
Road Rage
Doing 65 on a suped-up moped
Road Rage
