T. Rex Lyrics

The throne of time
Is a kingly thing
From whence you know
We all do begin
And dressed as you are girl
In your fashions of fate
Baby it's too late

Shallow all the actions
Of the children of men
Fogged was their vision
Since the ages began
And lost like a lion
In the canyons of smoke
Girl it's no joke

Daniel Jones - East London Blues

Throne of time is a kingly, a kingly thing
from whence you know, we all do begin
And dressed as you are girl in your fashions of fate
And baby, it's too late

Shallow are the actions of the children of men
Fought was their vision since the ages began
And lost like a lion in the canyons of smoke
But it's no joke, oh no

Ditto! But, by the time I bought it was 4 years old. But still great!

Same here. I bought the album while on a school residential field trip. The poster that wa sincluded was damaged by one of the guys who didn't like T.Rex. Brings back many memories of my early teens. Marc was my favorite at the time. I was less than a mile from him when he died. but I didn't hear about it until the morning while listening to Radio One and was overcome with grief. I couldn't believe he was gone and just as he was making a big come-back after his short TV series. This song always brings tears to my eyes.

Taken too early... But Marc lives on in our Tyrannosaurus hearts....
