Ooh, oh man, ooh
Telegram Sam, Telegram Sam,
You are my main man
Golden Nose Slim, Golden Nose Slim,
I know's where you 'bin, oh
Purple Pie Pete, P-purple Pie Pete *
Your lips are like lightning girls melt in the heat, yeah

Telegram Sam, you're my main man
Telegram Sam, you're my main man
Oh, ooh

Bobby's alright, Bobby's alright
He's a natural born poet, he's just outta sight
Jungle faced Jake, jungle faced Jake
I say, make no mistake about jungle faced Jake, Jake

Telegram Sam, you're my main man
Telegram Sam, you're my main man
Oooh, Samson and Christoph, what a pair!

Bobby's alright, Bobby's alright
He's a natural born poet, he's just outta sight
Automatic shoes, automatic shoes
Give me 3D-vision and the California Blues
And me I funk but I don't care
I ain't no square with my corkscrew hair

Telegram Sam, you're my main man
Telegram Sam, you're my main man
Telegram Sam, you're my main man
Oh, do-do do-do do-do, oh

Telegram Sam
Telegram Sam, I'm a howling wolf, bo-hoo-hoo-hoo
Telegram Sam, I'm a howling wolf, bo-hoo-hoo-hoo
