Hi Revvin' Honda

I jumped on the Honda and started to kick:

The battery was flat or the oil too thick,
The gap was not right in the points or the plug,
Or maybe the coil had developed a bug.
The main jet was clogged or the mixture too weak,
Perhaps a gasket had started to leak,
The cam chain had snapped or the valves stuck open,
The pistons were holed or a conrod broken.

These were the things I started to ponder
As I cursed the day when I'd bought a Honda.

But almost before I could rue the decision
I remembered to switch on the blooming ignition.
