T. Rex Lyrics

Your mama said, "clean out your head boy, don`t lay nothing on my child"
Your friends they said, "Your heads in a noose boy lay some boogie on our minds"
And we stood like the rapids and I was like a new born child.

Your father said, "clean out your head boy, go and kick cans along the street"
Your father said "clean out your toes rose and go and lick some uncooked meat`
And we stood like the rapids and I was like a new born child.

Your mama said, "my babe is not free son, but I`m loose about midnight`
Your father said, "Your sisters a groove boy, what I said it just ain`t right"
But then I stood like the rapids and I was like a new born child.

Won`t you tell me why?

How can anyone not love this. Perfection

David Weaver

Tanx is cool

Michael Platter

The three Records - Electric Warrior (1971), The Slider (1972) and Tanx (1973) T. Rex were on the zenith in their career.

Dag Nabbit

I am partial to the self titled TRex ! Pure all time mold breaking RnR Masterpiece


Michael Platter Dandy In The Underworld is just as good as Tanx in my opinion

Damn Skippy


michael foley

Mr. Ess

I never heard this song before today but I’ve had it on repeat ever since.

Ethan Hill

Bought album from cutout bin somewhere in Greenwich Village. I still sing this song from memory decades later. Tounge in cheek putdown in ALL THE YOUNG DUDES confirmed Marc Bolan was A STAR. Would had been great in NY Dolls or on a bill with that band.
