One stage to go


To the tune of "Home for a Rest"

You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best
I've been gone for a month, I've been bonked since I left
These so-called vacations will soon be my death
I'm so sick from the bike I need home for a rest.

We arrived in late-April and Belgium was cold
We searched for the web on the side of the road
We never saw nothin' but curious townsfolk
Kept the wind at our backs with the speed of our spokes

CHORUS:

You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best
I've been gone for a week
I've been bonked since I left
And these so-called vacations
Will soon be my deathI'm so sick from the bike
I need home for a rest
Take me home....

Elsy Jacobs our first race to war
Julie’s break showed that she was surely hardcore
Next up was the Swiss, large mountains would yield
The beautiful lakes and wonderful meals

- CHORUS -

Bern World Cup brought us and the fans to the streets
The three k long hill proved to be quite a feat
Then next down to France with the poppies around
“So What I’m a Rock Star” was the common sound

You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best
I've been gone for a month
I've been bonked since I left
And these so-called vacations
Will soon be my death
I'm so sick from the bike
I need home for a rest
Take me home....

The gas tank is empty, L’Aude’ll be over soon
My legs are sore as I stare at the moon
I'm knackered again, come on sleep take me soon
And don't lift up my head 'till the the twelve bells at noon

You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best
I've been gone for a month
I've been bonked since I left
And these so-called vacations
Will soon be my death
I'm so sick from the bike
I need home for a rest
Take me home
