Met a woman she's spouting prose
She's got luggage eyes and a roman nose
Her body is slung from side to side
Need a lift she said much obliged
I'm riding piggy-back
Then I came to her shack

We go inside the place it's a mess
She said my name's the liquid poetess
She unties her mouth
And her buckskin dress
She drinks from a bottle
Labelled tenderness
I'm in one hand in the other's a can

She puts me in the can
And smiles through the wall
I got the horror's 'cause I'm one inch tall
Next thing I know's a girl by my side
Dressed in a bayleaf she's trying to hide
I asked her name she said Germaine
Do the rock do the one inch rock.

    This song is so cool. I love his backing vocals in the song and the acoustic guitar is awesome. Once again, like in every song Bolan wrote, the lyrics are out of this world.

    Cracking good Bolan track. There are different versions of this, but my favourite is the one with the long introduction. By the time the lyric begins, you're well away and can't stop rocking. By the end of the first verse, you're deep in Marc's magical, mystical world. At the end of the track, you're completely exhausted. Great stuff !!
