Packrack.

My bike doesn't have titanium toeclips
My bike doesn't have a seven gram frame
My bike's mainly held together with blue tac
My bike's name is particularly lame, but

My bike's got a nice packrack
Bright and shiny and new
It really has a very nice packrack
To carry my love to you

My bike's tyres look like barbecued sausages
My bike's seat is infested with ants
My bike's ten speed but only one's working
My bike's chain keeps eating my pants, but...

My bike's given me a muddy back guarantee
My bike ought to get the "No bell" prize
My bike's brakes break and fail to stop braking
My bike's a wheelbarrow in disguise, but...

  In German (by Daniela Erdtmann and Nina):
Mein Fahrrad hat'n schönen Gepäckträger/
Der glänzt wie ein leuchtender Stern
Es hat echt den tollsten Gepäckträger
Der bringt meine Liebe Dir gern

In Danish (by Malene Grohn)
Min cykel har en fin bagagebæger
Den skinner og kører som en leg
Den har virkelig en fin bagagebæger
Den bringer min kærlighed til dig

In Maori (by Mala Somersun):
He pai pakaraka toku pahikara
Ao me pia tata me hou
Tino pai rawa tenei pakaraka
Hikitia taku aroha ki a koe.

Backwards:
Woo used val y'army racket
Carrot caps yahnyi revvers å hillivery
Woo in day in yahsh nat dyarb
Carrot caps yahn a dogs kyub yum
(å is as in "cat")

In Arrernte (by Mary Flynn (written in my phonetics)):
Bathagull achena Packrack muwrra kuwrt
Muwrra ngerrel derk anelgarl
Packrack muwrrag nerrandorra
Dag wawta chenagung wornagnuwm
(I write "uw" to remind myself that it's an extreme version of "oo", as in Book)

In Welsh (by Meri Jones of Llanfyllin)
Mae gen fy meic fag pacio
Sy'n newydd, sgleiniog a chry
Mae gen fy meic fag pacio neis iawn
I gario fy nghariad i ti

In Bulgarian (by Radoslava Bojkova)
Колелото ми има хубав багажник
Ярък, блестящ и нов
Това е един прекрасен багажник
С които ще доведа моята любов
Koleloto mi ima hubav bagazhnik
Yaruk, blestyasht i nov
Tova e edin prekrasan bagazhnik
S koito shte doveda moiata lyubov

In Esperanto (by Miranda Lutz)
Mia biciklo havas bontenil'
Hela kaj brila kaj nov'
Gxi vere estas ja bela tenilo
Por porti mian amon al vi

In Finnish (by Jenny Rautio)
Minun pyörällä on hieno tarakka
Joka viestiä sulle tuo
Ja se todella on hienon hieno tarakka
Se mun rakkauden tuo sun luo

In Swedish (by Hans Ryding)
Min cykel har en fin pakethållare
Alldeles glänsande ny
Den har verkligen en väldigt fin pakethållare
För att bära min kärlek till dig
