Wolfman Jack

Album: Something/Anything? (1972)
  • "Hey baby, you're on a subliminal trip to nowhere.
    You better get your trip
    Together before you step
    In here with us!"

    Full moon tonight, everything's all right
    Baby come on back to Wolfman Jack
    If you want yourself a day man, well I don't mind
    You just ditch him when the sun goes down
    'Cause the moon shines bright
    And everything's all right
    When the Wolfman, he creeps into town

    Now you maybe want a man who throws 'round his money
    But he ain't as cool as Wolfman Jack
    And you might want yourself a man
    Who don't act so funny
    But he ain't your fool like Wolfman Jack

    I don't mean to treat you evil
    I'm just a good boy gone bad
    But if I catch you after dark walking through the park
    I'm just liable to do something mad

    You maybe think you know what love is about girl
    But it's nothing 'til it's Wolfman Jack
    And everybody knows, you go round and shout it
    That your only thrill is Wolfman Jack

    Full moon tonight, everything's all right
    Baby come on back to Wolfman Jack
    I may miss your loving while I'm on my back
    But you can't escape from Wolfman Jack
    You can't do this to me

    Look me in the eyes baby, now you cut that jive
    You know the Wolfman's just about
    The number one cat alive
    You got my great big eyes spinning 'round in my head
    How could you love another man instead? Writer/s: TODD RUNDGREN

  • Guy from Somewhere Out ThereIt's actually the opposite. On the first three sides, he performs all the instruments and vocals himself. On the fourth, he recorded it live in studio with other musicians.
  • Victor Z. Epsilon from UsaTodd Rundgren did not record the entire "Something, Anything" album solo; only on one side does he perform all the instruments and vocals, while on the other 3 sides (including the big hit "Hello, It's Me") he has much help.
