It’s long been the bane of Perth truck drivers and now, it’s gone. The Bayswater Bridge.
Matt wanted to pay tribute to the Perth icon and did what he does best. Wrote a tribute song to commemorate the occasion, to the tune of Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac.
We know you’re here for the sweet lyrics so here they are.
I drive a truck and man I have seen some things, From bad merging, to Kymba looking for free parking, But fear hits me when my load’s above 12 feet, Would never turn my rig onto King William street.
Don’t need to find a new way, Safe now at Bayswater subway, Don’t mean the sandwich place, But hey, a sandwich would be okay, Don’t need to find a new way, New Bayswater subway.
That poor old bridge, has seen its fair share of fools, From plain mistakes, to drivers just driving like tools, It never budged though many a truck it bent, Now drive our rigs without fear down Whatley Crescent
Don’t need to find a new way, They’ve fixed up Bayswater subway, They’ve made it slightly higher, It’s metres, 4.8, Don’t need to find a new way, New Bayswater subway.
