Tenement Lady
T. Rex Lyrics

Tenement lady, stone drug mama, street hawk stone heart
Mind that swiftly falls apart
Sudden sid groove lid, sharp as the dark park, pickle pump peeper
Mind that swiftly falls apart

Count lurch hearse head, prince of the snick snacks
Got a pierced ear mind fear, of the sailors with their perfume
Molly mouse dream talk, gin house milk shake
She steals my magazines, she`s a laser lipped lover yeah

Oh my darling there are many ways to, love you
Underneath sheets of silk I slyly peep at you
The giants and the dwarfs all call the same, Oh yeah, oh yeah

Oh my darling there are many ways to view you
To me your almost like a hammer and screw
People on the street call out your name
The giants and the dwarfs all call the same, Oh yeah, oh yeah oh

Kelly Reade

1973 Tanx album - a gorgeous, incredibly creative album that Bolan fans have taken to heart. Each song so unique. Those lyrics, his voice, unexpected instrumentation - if you're new to Marc Bolan, don't miss this album. xx

Thomas Huth

Kelly Reade yes, you Said it!

Voyeur Coma

Kelly Reade the silent favourite of many, I would have thought.


Probably my favorite album!

Jon Hufford

I might like this album better than the slider now. These two and electric warrior are just brilliant.

Jon Hufford

LizzFizz420 I feel the same way but depending on my mood tanx could take it


tanx really does get better after every listen. the slider's still my favorite but tanx definitely rivals electric warrior

michael foley

kelly you are so right Tanx is a brilliant album there so many great songs in there own right why some weren't put out as singles still miffs to this day left hand luke was a master piece, highway knees what a beautiful solo I could go on and on about that LP and why is there one dislike who would do that take the time just to click dislike just for fun I have been on other sites and there is one dislike its mad so who ever it is if you don't like T. rex just go somewhere else why take the time to do that must be someone who's a bit deaf! keep on rockin'at the unionhallyeah!

Thomas Huth

michael foley you said it!

Michael Platter

A very beautiful Trilogy - Electric Warrior released in 1971, The Slider released in 1972, Tanx released in 1973. The early seventies, Marc Bolan and T. Rex best era.
