T. Rex – Jason B Sad lyrics

Marc Bolan and Miller Anderson- guitars
Herbie Flowers- bass
Tony Newman- drums
Dino Dines - keyboards and synthesizer
Bud Beadle- baritone sax
Chris Mercer- tenor sax
Marc Bolan- vocal
A distant friend of Johnny B. Goode
Jason B. Sad was a lonely lad
His head was a bed for everyone
His clothes was his life
But his heart was a knife
Inscribed on it was "rock 'n' roll is cruel"
Take me to school, boy
Leave me alone, boy
Slice me a bone of the Universe
Take me to school, boy
Leave me alone, boy
Slice me a bone of the Universe *
Jason got weird and he pierced his ears
A gypsy alone in his gallantry
He met Shaky Sue, who wore only blue
And they shared in their teenage misery
* Repeat
Then Jason read books and wore hard looks
He swapped Sue for an artisan
His winters were long and a fantastic song
Grew from his head like a marigold

* Repeat
