Child Star
T. Rex Lyrics


D9.......................................
Mountain eyes, peeping out of his head ah
D9..................................
Sipping tea, composing in his bed ah
D9.........................................
A hundred hands working on a musical of old
..c.........am............c........am........c..
Debussy and mendelsshon handel and dvorak of old


C....................................
Child star, protegee of mister gormez
C..............am....
Who said you'd go far
C...............................................
Child star, they do not see just what a precious
Am..........
Gem you'd be
D.......................
Sad to them watching you
D.........(/d10 repeat).........
Fade into in-ah in-ah-visibility


D9............................................
Twelve yeas old, your elvish fingers kiss your
D9..............................................
Beethoven hair, the awesome people stare they're
D9...............................................
Unaware of all the angel sounds they see and hear
..c.........am............c........am..........c...
Debussy and mendelsshon handel and dvorak they hear


C....................................
Child star, protegee of mister gormez
C..............am....
Who said you'd go far
C...........................................................
Child star, and when you died at just thirteen they wept and
Am.............
Rung their hair
D.......................
Sad to them mourning you
D.................(/d10 repeat)....................
When you are there within the flowers and the trees

Recall buying this interesting lp with a few technicolour cover--a very long title if my memory serves me right...my introduction to TREX !

Marc Bolan

My people were fair & yadda yadda stars on their brows. Longest album cover I’ve ever heard of 😂

Mountain eyes, peeping out of his head
Sipping tea composing in his bed
A hundred hands working on a musical of old
Debussy and Mendlessohn
Handel and Dvorak of old
Child star protege of Mister Gormez
Who said you'd go far
Child star, they do not see just what a precious gem you'd be
Sad to see them watching you fade into invisibility

Twelve years old, your elvish fingers kiss your Beethoven hair
The awesome people stare
They're unaware of all the angel sounds they see and hear
Debussy and Mendlessohn
Handel and Dvorak of old
Child star protege of Mister Gormez
Who said you'd go far
Child star and when you died at just thirteen they wept and wrung their hair
Sad to see them mourning you when you are there
Within the flowers and the trees

Glad he finally had one........Rolan

Should have one with June. Worst mistake he ever made knocking Gloria up while he was off his face.

I bought this album the week before we lost at OT 1971 semi-final.

Much better than his later 'Glitter' period of the dreadful seventies. ''Child Star'' & ''Deborah'' were quite unique, even for the sixties!.
