  • You're so sweet
    You're so fine
    I want you all and everything just to be mine
    'Cause you're my babe
    'Cause you're my love
    Girl, I'm just a Jeepster for you love

    You slide so good
    With bones so fair
    You've got the universe reclining in your hair
    'Cause you're my babe
    Yes, you're my love
    Girl, I'm just a Jeepster for you love

    Just like a car
    You're pleasing to behold
    I'll call you Jaguar if I may be so bold
    'Cause you're my babe
    Yes, you're my love
    Girl, I'm just a Jeepster for you love

    The wild winds blow
    Upon your frozen cheeks
    The way you flip your hip it always makes me weak
    'Cause you're my babe
    Yes, you're my love
    Girl, I'm just a Jeepster for you love

    Your motivation is so sweet
    Your vibrations are burning up my feet
    'Cause you're my babe
    Yes, you're my love
    Girl, I'm just a Jeepster for you love

    I said, girl I'm just a vampire for your love
    And I'm going to suck you Writer/s: MARC BOLAN

  • Josh from Champaign, IlJeepster was a model of automobile released by Willys-Overland from 1948-1950. The model was intended to be a middle ground between the Jeep model intended for rough off-road utilitarian use and their CJ series (Civilian Jeep). Though I think that Jeepster just fits the song in the poetic sense and I'm sure the focus is on the off-road sense that it will go through rough terrain and objects to reach its destination, that Jaguar of a girl, of course another automobile, known for its sleek and sexy lines and refinement.
  • Diane from Hamilton, OnWhat does "Jeepster for your love" mean?
  • Paul from Rothesay, Nb, CanadaThe percussion heard in the middle part of the song is actually Marc stamping on the floor, or as he once called it "Me doing a little bit of tap dancing"
  • Rick from Houston, TxMy first exposure to any T-Rex song, other than "Bang A Gong". This tune was on the soundtrack, and also used in the movie "Death Proof", directed by Quentin Tarantino. If you have not been exposed to any of the soundtracks from Quentin's movies, you are doing yourself a disservice. He throws together some really good ones.
  • Davie from Paisley, ScotlandThe song was also on the B side of the "something you got" single by Protex. A Bolafide classic, nice one Paul.
  • Paul from Rothesay, Nb, CanadaWalter,

    Bolan often used car/vehicle metaphors in his music, and this is no exception. A "Jeepster" is an actual jeep. When you think of all the things a jeep connotates; travelling over rough terraine, power, masculinity etc...you get what Bolan means by the line "Girl, I'm just a Jeepster for your love". A Bolafide classic!
  • Walter from Antwerp, BelgiumHow many big hitsingles have the line "I'm gonna suck ya" in them? Not too many, I guess. Though I was still a boy at the time, I was very fond of this record, must've been that catchy rhythm. Only still don't know what a "jeepster" is, can somebody please explain?
