"Explosive Mouth" as written by and Marc Bolan....
Now I'm popping a few
In the morning dew,
Do the monkey wrench.

On a Persian bench
It's a teenage night
And the vampires are right

And I want to lay my lips
On your explosive mouth

Picked up Kenny
At an art deco deli
And Zero he's a cat
With an automated hat
And I need to be free of all the
Fantasies I hide in

And I want to lay my lips on
Your explosive mouth

It's a shame for man to hide
All the things that do survive
From his past

When I jump on your horse
I gallop a course
And howl like a wolf
And I drink up the sky
And I beat on my chest
Just to punk up the rest

But I want to lay my lips
On your explosive mouth

It's a shame for man to hide
All the things that do survive
From his past

    General CommentThis is a very cool song with a sound far ahead of its time. According to legend, Bolan refused to tune his guitar for this session leading the lead and rhythm guitars to be at a slightly different pitch. According to Tony Visconti, when he pointed this out to Marc, Bolan replied "My guitar's not out of tune, your ears are faulty!"
