Lyrics

Mambo Sun
03:41
Underneath the bebop moon
I want to croon with you
Underneath 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 hearts all pain for you

Girl, you're good
And I've got wild knees for you
On a mountain range
I'm Doctor 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 hat in my hand
I'm a hungry man for you
I got stars in my beard
And I feel real weird for you

Underneath the bebop moon
I'm howling like a loon for you
Underneath the mambo sun
I've got to be the one for you

Oh, take me
Ah, yeah, ah
Oh, please come
Cosmic Dancer
04:30
I was dancing when I was twelve
I was dancing when I was out
I danced myself right out the womb
Is it strange to dance so soon
I danced myself right out the womb

I was dancing when I was eight
Is it strange to dance so late
I danced myself into the tomb
Is it strange to dance so soon
I danced myself into the tomb

Is it wrong to understand
The fear that dwells inside a man
What's it like to be a loon
I liken it to a balloon
I danced myself out of the womb
Is it strange to dance so soon
I danced myself into the tomb
But then again once more

I danced myself out of the womb
Is it strange to dance so soon
I danced myself out of the womb
Jeepster
04:12
You're so sweet
You're so fine
I want you all and everything
Just to be mine
Because you're my baby
Yes, you're my love

Girl, I'm just a jeepster for your love

You slide so good
With bones so fair
You've got the universe
Reclining in your hair
Because you're my baby
Yes, you're my love

Girl, I'm just a jeepster for your love

Just like a car
You're so pleasing to behold
I'll call you Jaguar
If I may be so bold
Because you're my baby
Yes, you're my love

Girl, I'm just a jeepster for your love

The wild winds blow
Upon your frozen cheeks
The way you flip your hip
It always makes me weak
Because you're my baby
Yes, you're my love

Girl, I'm just a jeepster for your love

Your motivation
Is so sweet
Your vibrations
Are burning up my feet
Because you're my baby
Yes, you're my love

Girl, I'm just a jeepster for your love
I said girl, I'm just a vampire for your love

I'm gonna suck you
Monolith
03:49
The 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
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

It's no joke

Shallow all the actions
Of the children of men
But it is no joke

The 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
Girl, it's too late

It's too late
Lean Woman Blues
03:03
Lean love
All you give to me is lean love
I'm like a beggar in the sand
With the sky in his hand
And I'm blue

Black day
All you give to me are your wild ways
When you're the love of my life
And when you gorge me with a knife
And I'm blue

Lightening
All the heavy world is frightening
I'm talking to you
I'm like a child in the sand
On the beach of the land of you
And I'm blue

I'm you friend
Give me your hand

Lean love
All you give to me is your lean love
I'm like a beggar in the sand
With the sky in my hand
And I'm blue

Because I really love you
Get It On
04:28
Well, you're dirty and sweet
Clad in black, don't look back and I love you
You're dirty and sweet, oh yeah
Well, you're slim and you're weak
You've got the teeth of the hydra upon you
You're dirty sweet and you're my girl

Get it on, bang a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on

Well, you're built like a car
You've got a hub cap diamond star halo
You're built like a car, oh yeah
Well, you're an untamed youth
That's the truth with your cloak full of eagles
You're dirty sweet and you're my girl

Get it on, bang a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on

Well, you're windy and wild
You've got the blues in your shoes and your stockings
You're windy and wild, oh yeah
Well, you're built like a car
You've got a hub cap diamond star halo
You're dirty sweet and you're my girl

Get it on, bang a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on

Well, you're dirty and sweet
Clad in black, don't look back and I love you
You're dirty and sweet, oh yeah
Well, you dance when you walk
So let's dance, take a chance, understand me
You're dirty sweet and you're my girl

Get it on, bang a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on

Take me, for a meanwhile I'm still thinking
Planet Queen
03:14
The planet queen, perchance to dream
She used my head like an exploder
The planet queen
The worlds the same, I am to blame
She used my head like a revolver
The world's the same

Well, it's all right
Love is what she wants
Flying saucer, take me away
Give me your daughter
Well, it's all right
Love is what she wants
Flying saucer, take me away
Give me your daughter

Dragon head, machine of lead
Cadillac king, dancer in the midnight
Dragon head
The planet queen, perchance to dream
She used my head like a revolver
The world's the same

Well, it's all right
Love is what she wants
Flying saucer take me away
Give me your daughter
Well, it's all right
Love is what she wants
Flying saucer, take me away
Give me your daughter

The dragon head, machine of lead
Cadillac king, dancer in the midnight
Dragon head
The planet queen, perchance to dream
She used my head like a revolver
The planet queen

Well, it's all right
Love is what she wants
Flying saucer, take me away
Give me your daughter
Well, it's all right
Love is what she wants
Flying saucer, take me away
Give me your daughter
Well, it's all right
Love is what she wants
Flying saucer, take me away
Give me your daughter
Give me your daughter
Give me your daughter
Give me your daughter
Girl
02:33
Oh God
High in your fields above earth
Come and be real for us
You with your mind
Oh yes, you are beautifully fine

Oh girl
Electric witch you are
Limp in society's ditch
You are visually fine
Oh yes, you are, but mentally dying

Oh boy
Just like a boat you are
Sunk but somehow you float
You do, mentally weak
Oh yes, you are, but so much you speak

Oh girl
Electric witch you are
Limp in society's ditch
You are visually fine
Oh yes, you are, but mentally dying

Oh God
High in your fields above earth
Come and be real for us
You with your mind
Oh yes, you are beautifully fine
The Motivator
04:00
I love the way you walk
Don't you know you're a cool motivator
Love the way you walk
Love the way you walk

I love the way your eye
Doth shine like an Egyptian ruby
Love the way it shines
Love the way it shines

Shine on

I love the clothes you wear
They're so mean they're so free, they're so handsome
Love the clothes you wear
Love the clothes you wear

I love the broken crown
The one you stole from the king and held for ransom
Love the broken crown
Love the broken crown

I love it

I love the golden cat
You know the one that you keep in your bedroom
Love the golden cat
Love the golden cat

I love the velvet hat
You know the one that caused a revolution
Love the velvet hat
Love the velvet hat

I love it

Love the way you walk
Love the way you walk

Love the way you talk
Love the way you walk

Walk on
Life's a Gas
02:25
I could have loved you, girl, like a planet
I could have chained your heart to a star
But it really doesn't matter at all
No, it really doesn't matter at all

Life's a gas

I could have built a house on the ocean
I could have placed our love in the sky
But it really doesn't matter at all
No, it really doesn't matter at all

Life's a gas

I could have turned you into a priestess
I could have burned your fate in the sand
But it really doesn't matter at all
No, it really doesn't matter at all

Life's a gas

I hope it's gonna last

But it really doesn't matter at all
No, it really doesn't matter at all

Life's a gas
Rip Off
03:40
In the moonlight, fighting with the night
It's a rip-off
Kissing all the slain, I'm bleeding in the rain
It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off

Rocking in the nude, I'm feeling such a dude
It's a rip-off
Dancing in the dark with the tramps in the park
It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off

See your baby's stud sliding in the mud
It's a rip-off
Bleached on the beach, I want to tickle your peach
It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off

See the girl dance in her man-skin pants
It's a rip-off
Terraplane Tommy wants to bang your gong
It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off

Gypsy girl's good, people treat her like a fool
It's a rip-off
The President's weird, he's got a Burgundy beard
It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off

I'm the king of the highway
I'm the queen of the hop
You should see me at the governors ball
Doing the rip-off bop

I'm a social person
I'm the creature in disguise
There's a man with a whip on his silver lip
Living inside my eyes

I'm the cat from the alley
I'm the fleetfoot vodoo man
There's very little that's ever said
All of which I understand

Caught like a skunk in space and time
It's a rip-off
If it's her's, well, it must be mine
It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off

Rocking in the nude, I'm feeling such a dude
It's a rip-off
Mountings of the moon remind me of my spoon
It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off

Bleached on the beach, I want to tickle your peach
It's a rip-off
See the girl dance in her man-skin pants
It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off
