A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle




'A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle', this is one line in one of U2's song. But I don't understand why bicyble is so important to a fish. I thought it was water that a fish could not lack for.

It is highly appreciated that if anyone can explain what's the background story or something like that.  Thanks in advance.  Take care, be well.
