My Little Honda 50

Tom Tuohy

My little Honda 50 she’s rapid and she’s nifty

She’ll do a hundred and fifty on a windy day

My little Honda 50, hit the nitro and she’ll shift me

Get me away from the Garda anyway


I got her in the Buy and Sell back in ‘82

A travellin’ man in a caravan said “This is the bike for you”

He was lookin’ for a hundred, I gave him thirty two

Took her for a spin out the Kinnegad Road and begod she feckin’ flew


I drove her into Newbridge lookin’ for a couple of parts

Alloy wheels, a sat-nav and a new push button start

Headin’ out to Robertstown for the bingo and the beer

Comin’ down the Hill of Allen she hit the ton in second gear


I was ridin’ across The Curragh nice and slow

The Guards pulled in behind me, Sergeant Kelly, don’t you know

I said, “O Buck, just my luck” and I hit the nitro hard

By the time the squad hit Brookets Cross I had her parked in Brady’s Yard
