now I'm popping a few
in the morning dew
do the monkey wrench
all the birds adventures
the 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 date
from tulips 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

its a shame
for man too high
all the things
we do to survive
from this day

now I jump on your horse
and I gallop of course
and howl like a wolf
and drink up the sky
and I beat on my chest
just a punk off the ranch

but I want to lay my lips on your
explosive mouth

its a shame
for man too high
all the things
that I do to survive
from this day

    Life is the same And it always will be Easy as picking foxes from a tree

    But I can't get no satisfaction All I want is easy action

    A stud is a lamb With the thoughts of a tiger

    Who moves like a cat And knows how to ride her

    But I can't get no satisfaction All I want is easy action, baby

    Stroll on I can't get no satisfaction All I want is easy action

    A woman from the east with her headlights shining

    Eased my pain and stopped my crying

    But I can't get no satisfaction All I want is easy action, baby

    And all my hair will keep her smiling With my wondrous walk and my telephone dialing But I can't get no satisfaction All I want is easy action, baby

    I know you're shrewd and she's a dude But all I want is easy action I know you're shrewd and she's a dude But all I want is easy action I know you're shrewd and she's a dude But all I want is easy action, baby

    Stroll on

    Dude = Person from the East "A woman from the east with her headlights shining" I used to think this song was about doing a transvestite. Sure glad I got that clarified for myself :)

    My Interpretation

    Well...Um Sex is the obvious theme, looks like not all of Marc's song's are poetry eh? Don't get me started on "All my head will keep her smiling" ;)

    However, an interesting fact/link whatever you want to call it ^^; The Car that Marc Bolan died in had the Registration Plate FOX 661L, and crashed into a tree, now that throws a disturbing light on "Picking Foxes from a tree" doesn't it?

    Song Meaning

    I thought it was "all my hair will keep her smiling". He used to change and shift words so freely. His wondrous walk - the way he moved on the stage, and telephone dialling - some references to telephones existing in his songs (like Metal Guru, Shy boy)..

    Now, this may be reading a bit much into Marc's lyrics here, but... Could the line 'this girl is a lamb with the thoughts of a tiger' refer to William Blake's poem 'The Tyger', from Songs Of Experience? The poem itself clearly contrasts with his earlier poem, 'The Lamb', from Songs Of Innocense: 'Did he who made the Lamb make thee?'. Also: could the following line, 'moves like a cat but knows how to ride her' refer to the chinese proverb 'he who rides a tiger is afraid to dismount'? Marc was fond of classical poetry from many different cultures, after all. Perhaps he was cleverer than he seemed?
