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

Metal guru, is it you?
Metal guru, is it you?
Sitting there in your armour plated chair

Metal guru, is it true?
Metal guru, is it true?
All alone without a telephone

Metal guru could it be
You’re gonna bring my baby to me
She’ll be wild you know
A rock ‘n’ roll child

Metal guru has it been
Just like a silver-studded sabre-tooth dream
I’ll be clean you know
Pollution machine

Metal guru, is it you?
Metal guru, is it you?

Metal guru could it be
You’re gonna bring my baby to me
She’ll be wild you know
A rock ‘n’ roll child

Metal guru, is it you?
Metal guru, is it you?
All alone without a telephone

Metal guru could it be
You’re gonna bring my baby to me
She’ll be wild you know
A rock’n’roll child

Metal guru, is it you?
Metal guru, is it you?
Metal guru, is it you?
Metal guru, is it you?
Metal guru, is it you?
Metal guru, is it you?
Metal guru, is it you?
Metal guru, is it you?
Metal guru, is it you?
