Salamanda Palaganda
T. Rex Lyrics


Small girl with the smiling 'gibbon
Bridled with an orchid ribbon
His curved brow in Scarlatti fashion
Boots that ride the night sky eagle
An old crone squirms upon a cushion
Made from Madras silk and satin
Her steel eyes hold a scimitar passion
For the skull hewn in Scarlatti fashion.
A cobra seer with the punctured ear
Slaughtered a Malayan sun bear
Night stood erect with brozen haunches
Zapped the seer and gave the bear back to us
Salamanda Palaganda Oh Palamino Blue
Salamanda Palaganda June's Buffalo too In the Parisian zoo.

1970s Dude

My mom turned me on to T-rex in the 1970s. I hope she is partying with Marc Bolan now. I miss you mom. :-(

Paranoia Perception

Hippie folk done right.

Syfoll

Marc wasn't hippie at all

Barry Nelson

I think they were hybrid hippies, ahead of their musical time. I listen today and they still sound fresh to these older ears.

Mia Paboplanes

Like all Tyrannosaurus Rex's songs,this tune makes me feel amazed and out of this planet. Steve rules! The way he plays the bongos is so trippy!

Peter Bareford

Small girl with smiling gibbon! you cant write better

Anne Sidderley

Fabulous

Phil Noble 2

One of my All time favourite songs. Conjours up such strange imagery in my mind.
(and I got the original Regal Zonophone 7" single 😁, The flipside of One Inch Rock)
Should have been the other way around imo 😊

Anyone know when Bowie danced for Tyrannosaurus Rex? I figure it must have been 68-69?

on their 68 tour
