Excellent piece!

So many strange lyrics!!

I’ll always go back to ‘Get it on’ by T Rex for the best collection of odd lyrical phrases. It’s almost surreal. “Built like a car”? Is that a compliment??? “Hubcap diamond star halo”?? What’s that look like???

Reproduced below (I’ve removed repetition)

Well you’re dirty and sweet, Clad in black don’t look back and I love you, You’re dirty and sweet, oh yeah

Well you’re slim and you’re weak, You’ve got the teeth of the hydra upon you, You’re dirty, sweet and you’re my girl

Get it on, bang a gong, get it on

Well you’re built like a car, You’ve got a hubcap diamond star halo, You’re built like a car, oh yeah

Well you’re an untamed youth, That’s the truth with your cloak full of eagles, You’re dirty, sweet and you’re my girl

Well you’re windy and wild, You’ve got the blues in your shoes and your stockings, You’re windy and wild, oh yeah

Well you dance when you walk, So let’s dance, take a chance, understand me, You’re dirty, sweet and you’re my girl
