Peacefully Pedaling Two Wheels To Paris

Headed for the tower Watch the legs supply the power Using a simple two-wheel device Spirited competitive ride healthy and nice This athletic mechanical dance Traveling the scenic villages throughout France Checking the rural roads Letting everyone know ‘How is it holding up after the mountainous winter snows?’ Twenty-one stages to do all this An international spectacle not to be missed Late June and into mid-July Townspeople applaud as the colorful circus goes bye Bringing neighbors together Sometimes enjoying beautiful weather But when it rains No one complains About this strategic cyclist game Yellow, green, polka dot Shirts note which riders are winning and are hot Tour de France is arriving at its destination City of Lights gearing up for the championship presentation Under the arch They glide not march Thirsty and parched Knowing soon the accomplishment will be real Proclaiming well done to the peaceful pedaling deal Gargoyles stamping the approved entertainment seal Hitting the end line Everything finished and fine Ready to pour the victory wine While success dines On time Using the sponsor's dime And listening to the Notre Dame bell’s chime With nothing to fear Until next year When they come back here For the Tour de France cheer
