Mambo Sun – From T.Rex’s Electric Warrior  (1971)

Beneath the bebop moon
I wanna croon with you
Beneath the Mambo Sun
I got to be the one with you

My life’s a shadowless horse
If I can’t get across to you
In the alligator rain
My heart’s all pain for you
Girl you’re good
And I’ve got wild knees for you
On a mountain range
I’m Dr.Strange for you

Upon a savage lake
Make no mistake I love you
I got a powder-keg leg
And my wig’s all pooped for you

With my heart in my hand
I’m a hungry man for you
I got stars in my beard
And I feel weird for you

Beneath the bebop moon
I’m howling like a loon for you
Beneath the Mumbo Sun
I’ve got to be the one for you

Mmmmmm MMM!

I don’t often post lyrics, long lists of songs, or leave little puddles of drool over a band.

But goddamn, this shit is baby-makin’ music if I’ve ever heard it.  Look at that album cover.  If a short little Jewish Brit like Marc Bolan showed up at my door tonight, I’d have my gear packed faster than you could…

Holy shit, he’s in the car already.

    I wonder what this could’ve been inspired by?
