Telegram Sam by T Rex

T Rex

The English rock band T. Rex was formed in 1967 by Marc Bolan, the band’s singer-songwriter and guitarist. Under their original band name of Tyrannosaurus Rex they released four psychedelic albums. From 1969 Bolan began to shift from an acoustic sound to an electric one and shortened the name to T. Rex. Bolan was killed in a car crash in 1977 shortly after the band’s final album Dandy in the Underworld. However, T. Rex has continued to exert influence on a variety of subsequent artists since then..

Lyrics by Marc Bolan

Telegram Sam Telegram Sam
You’re my main man

Golden Nose Slim Golden Nose Slim
I knows where you’ve been
Purple Pie Pete Purple Pie Pete
Your lips are like lightning
Girls melt in the heat

Telegram Sam
You’re my main man
Telegram Sam
You’re my main man

Bobby’s alright Bobby’s alright
He’s a natural born poet
He’s just outta sight
Jungle faced Jake
Jungle faced Jake
I say make no mistake
About Jungle faced Jake

Automatic shoes
Automatic shoes
Give me three D vision
And the California blues
Me I funk but I don’t care
I ain’t no square with my corkscrew hair
