"Metal Guru" as written by Peter Heppner and Markus Reinhardt....
My-wow-oh-yeah!

Metal Guru is it you, Metal Guru is it you
Sitting there in your armor plated chair, oh yeah
Metal Guru is it true, Metal Guru is it true
All alone without a telephone, oh yeah
Metal Guru could it be you're gonna bring my baby to me
She'll be wild you know a rock and roll child, oh yeah
Metal Guru has it been, just like a silver-studded sabre-tooth dream
I'II be clean you know pollution machine, oh yeah

Metal Guru is it you, Metal Guru is it you
Oh yeah, oh yeah, yeah, yeah, rock!

Metal Guru could it be you're gonna bring my baby to me
She'll be wild you know a rock and roll child, oh yeah
Metal Guru is it you, Metal Guru is it true
All alone without a telephone, oh
Metal Guru could it be you're gonna bring my baby to me
She'll be wild you know a rock and roll child, oh yeah

Metal Guru is it you, Metal Guru is it you, yeah, yeah, yeah
Metal Guru is it you, yeah, yeah, yeah
Metal Guru is it you, yeah, yeah, yeah ....

    General CommentThe song is about 'God', or as Marc himself said; "Is a festival of life song. I relate 'Metal Guru' to all Gods around. I believe in a God, but I have no religion. With 'Metal Guru', it's like someone special, it must be a Godhead. I thought how God would be, he'd be all alone without a telephone. I don't answer the phone any more. I have codes where people ring me at certain times."

    Song MeaningBolan's songs have a lot of inner meaning. It just depends on what kind of meaning you seek. This song is not about cars neither drugs - these are all superficial things. It's about love actually. About his dream of love... That he will be clean because you know - pollution machine, with time passing your mind gets a little dirty, that's how it works, this pollution machine which is life. But he hopes that he will be clean some day, that something good will happen and he'll be understood. That's the meaning, as simple as that.

    General CommentMaybe it's about a guy's expectation that having a car will reel in babes. I dunno. Seems most T Rex lyrics have miniminal "meaning", yet maximum impact. Lyrics as beautiful as they are enigmatic. Some people might accuse Bolan of style over substance, but I think that, in his case, style is substance. One of the best songwriters ever!!! Brilliant man, brilliant band.

    General CommentCertainly brought a heavy rock sound to an 11 year old kid when released. From then on, I just assumed he was a heavy metal guru - absurd, but to a kid who listened to the radio & had not heard anything as heavy on pop radio. We are talking radio 1 in the UK in the early 70's - I did not know what heavy metal was!!
