The Wizard
Walking in the woods one day
I met a man who said that he was magic
Wonderful things he said
Pointed hat upon his head
Knew why people laughed and cried
Why they lived and why they died
Shadows followed him around
He walked the woods without a single sound
Golden eagles at his door
Cats and bats played on the floor
Silver sunlight in his eyes
The wizard turned and melted in the sky.back to top
Beyond The Risin' Sun
You've heard about the Fairyland
Where people walk hand in hand,
I tell you I know where it is
It's past the Apples of the Sun
Near the Land of the Golden One,
Far beyond the rising sun
You pass the oceans of this land
Pass the man with the golden hand
You smile as you watch the Dragons fly
And play upon the golden shore
And bang upon his magic door
Behind which people never die
When finally you make the scene
You see things you never dream
You thought they were only in your mind
Where Unicorns and young Gods play
From the break of dawn to the end of day
Always happy and kind in their minds.back to top
The Third Degree
Everywhere I go people question me
she read my head and I can see
Philosophising mad psychiatrist
closing of my mind in darkness
Beware of the third degree
Everywhere I go people follow me
They look, they smile, they cannot see
I am too much for them to take in
they only say that I am faking
Beware of the third degree
Everywhere I go people always say
It's sad to see him act this way
Philosophising mad psychiatrist
just closing of my mind in darkness
Beware of the third degree, yeah
Sanity baby is all I got
I'm as sane as you believe it or not
Philosophising mad psychiatrist
just closing my mind in darkness
Everywhere I go people laugh at me.back to top
San Francisco Poet
His schooling days were ruling days to show it
To all the people eagerly wanting to blow-it
Crazy just to see
how foolish I can be
If he happens to be a San Francisco poet
Hey there Frisco poetically speaking
The days of the beatniks are gone
Hey there Frisco poetically speaking
The bibles all written wrong
His schooling days were ruling days to show it
To all the people eagerly wanting to blow-it
Crazy just to see
how foolish I can be
If he happens to be a San Francisco poet.back to top
Hippy Gumbo
Met a man he was nice
said his name was paradise
Didn't realise at the time
that his face and mind were mine
Hippy Gumbo he's no good
Chop him up for firewood
It seemed good and it seemed right
that I should dig him on the night
but in the morning with the sun he pulled an automatic gun
He blew my soul, he blew my brain
he said I could not do the same
Hippy Gumbo he's no good
Chop him up for firewood
Hippy Gumbo he's no good
Chop him up and burn the wood.



JOHN'S CHILDREN SINGLESback to top
Desdemona
Desdemona just because
You're the daughter of a man
He may be rich he's in a ditch
He does not understand
Just how to move or rock and roll
To the conventions of the young
Desdemona, Desdemona,
Desdemona Desdemona,
Desdemona, Desdemona
Lift up your skirt and fly.
Just because my friend and I
Got a jute joint by the Seine
Does not mean I'm past fourteen
And cannot play the game
I'm glad I split and got a pad
On Boulevard Rue Fourteen
Desdemona, Desdemona,
Desdemona Desdemona,
Desdemona, Desdemona
Lift Up your skirt and fly.
Just because Toulouse Lautrec
Painted some chick in the rude
Doesn't give you the right
To steal my night
And leave me naked in the nude
Well just because the touch of your hand
Can turn me on just like a stick.
Desdemona, Desdemona,
Desdemona Desdemona,
Desdemona, Desdemona
Lift up your skirt and speak.back to top
Midsummer's Night Scene
Petals and flowers
Petals and flowers
Petals and flowers
In the park getting dark eating the heat
there's an eye in the sky melting your feet
you see a chick who starts to nick the petals and flowers
She starts to joke and then provoke the dance of the hours
It's all down to a midsummer's night scene
It's all down to a Shakespearean dream
Get her face there's a place disfigured with love
Her hands are white like the night encased in a glove
She starts to swing and watches you nick petals and flowers
She starts to joke and then evokes the dance of the hours
Its all down to a midsummer's night scene
Its all down to a Shakespearean dream
Its all down to a midsummer's night scene
Its all down to a Shakespearean dream.back to top
Sara Crazy Child
Sara crazy child is devouring all the streets
With her pastel coloured dress
And her seductive bongo-beat
Her skin is wild like the olives
And her body's' bitter sweet
Still she's only just thirteen
And she's forgotten how to dream.
Her brother the juke-box King
With his venom mildly sting
And his knowledge twisted hair
And his 1920's stare
He lives beneath the roadway
In a manner to his lair
In summer he's a young boy
But in winter he's a tear
Broken dusty mother Imamal'
Her face melted just like wax
Her once gazelle like features
Blooded by the Ajax
Received your picture postcard
Of the twosome of the one
Solely the submitted to the guillotine of their home.

Pewter Suitor
Aah-ha, Aah-ha
Pewter suitor tangled in the bracken,
Dancing daily with his gaily wavy baton,
The wild cat wishing of
The hissing wheels of fortune that are known,
To rise beside us like
A picture painted heartache of the home.
La La La La etc. ....back to top
King Of The Rumbling Spires
Light all the fires,
It's the King of the Rumbling Spires,
Light all the fires,
It's the King and he's coming home.
We're so windy fair
Portrait of my young soul
Mighty eagles pair On the peace of your hair.
Light all the fires,
It's the King of the Rumbling Spires
Light all the fires,
It's the King and he's coming home.

T.REX SINGLESback to top
Ride A White Swan
Ride it on out like a bird in the sky way,
Ride it on out like you were a bird,
Fly it all out like an eagle in a sunbeam
Ride it all out like you were a bird.
Wear a tall hat like a Druid in the old days,
Wear a tall hat and a tattooed gown,
Ride a white swan like the people of the Beltane,
Wear your hair long babe, you can't go wrong
Catch a bright star and place it on you forehead,
Say a few spells and there you go.
Take a black cat and sit it on you shoulder
And in the morning you'll know all you know.back to top
Hot Love
Well she's my woman of gold
And she's not very old aa-ha
Well she's my woman of gold
And she's not very old aa-ha
I don't mean to be bold
But may I hold your hand?
Well she ain't no witch
And I love the way she twitch aa-ha
Well she ain't no witch
And I love the way she twitch aa-ha
I'm a labourer of love
In my Persian gloves aa-ha
Well she's faster than most
And she lives on the coast aa-ha

And she lives on the coast aa-ha
I'm her two-penny prince
And I give her hot love aa-ha

Woodland Rock
There's a man on the corner
got his head in his hat
he dances like a gypsy
so he must be where it's at.
Do the rock, do the woodland rock
let it all hang out ev'rybody shout
do the rock, do the woodland rock.
The wind is the thing
that makes the body swing
it brings you up and takes you down
and treats you like a king
do the rock, do the woodland rock
let it all hang out ev'rybody shout
do the rock, do the woodland rock.
Met a little Momma
she was sweet,
she was gone
she's got legs like a railroad
face like a song
Do the rock, do the woodland rock
let it all hang out
Ev'rybody shout do the rock,
do the woodland rock.
Wind is in the willows
my house is up a tree
the seas of change are flowing
I want everybody free
to do the rock, do the woodland rock
let it all hang out ev'rybody shout
do the rock, do the woodland rock.
Met a little Momma
she was sweet, she was gone
she's got legs like a railroad
face like a song
Do the rock, do the woodland rock
let it all hang out ev'rybody shout

Do the rock, do the woodland rock

The way you play me down
It's a shame the way you hide me in the electric school

So ride on, fight on
Love is gonna win
It's gonna beat your sins
Fight on, ride on
Love is gonna win
It's gonna beat your sins
It's a game with broken brain
The way you smile on me
I'm a bird that rides upon your window fools
It's a shame how you unzip my winter poetry
It's a shame the way you treat me like a foolback to top
Solid Gold Easy Action
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
A woman from the east with her headlights shining
eased my pain and stopped my crying
And all my hair will keep her smiling
With my wondrous walk and my telephone dialling
I know you're shrewd and she's a dude
But all I want is easy action
