Took Marc Bolan to incorporate unusual lyrics about love into a classic rock riff.  "You're dirty, sweet and you're my girl", indeed.

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
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
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on (oh)
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're built like a car
You've got a hubcap diamond star halo
You're dirty, sweet and you're my girl
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on
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 dance when you walk
So let's dance, take a chance, understand me
You're dirty, sweet and you're my girl......

As he showed many times over, the genius of John Lennon with lyrics and music.

Here I stand head in hand
Turn my face to the wall
If she's gone I can't go on
Feelin' two-foot small
Everywhere people stare
Each and every day
I can see them laugh at me
And I hear them say
Hey, you've got to hide your love away
Hey, you've got to hide your love away
How can I even try
I can never win
Hearing them, seeing them
In the state I'm in
How could she say to me
Love will find a way
Gather 'round all you clowns
Let me hear you say
Hey, you've got to hide your love away
Hey, you've got to hide your love away

Mason wanted to see if he could write a two chord song.  He wound up crafting one of rock's iconic riffs and tunes about the hurt associated with love.

Seems I've got to have a change of scene
Every night I have the strangest dreams
Imprisoned by the way it could have been
Left here on my own or so it seems
I've got to leave before I start to scream
Won't someone lock the door and turn the key
Feeling alright (oh, no)
I'm not feeling too good myself (on, no)
If I feeling alright (oh, no)
I'm not feeling that good myself, yeah (oh, no)
Boy, you sure took me for one big ride
And even now I sit and I wonder why
That when I think of you I stop myself from crying
I just can't waste my time, I must keep trying
Got to stop believing in all your lies
'Cause there's to much to do before I die, hey
Feeling alright (oh, no)
I'm not feeling too good myself (oh, no)
Oh no, feeling alright (oh, no)
I'm not feeling too

Love Cocker’s cover but this is my favorite version.

One of the albums where every single cut is great. 

No question.  Along with the Montrose record, you could argue them as the best debut albums ever.  Thinking about it, I guess "Rock Candy" is a love song.  Blast this.

When I Need Good Loving I Always Come Home To You
You Free My Lifetime Of The Blues
Yes I Got That Old Time Feeling Burning Deep Inside My Soul
And I Am Yours And Baby I'm Home
And It's A Good Feeling To Know It's Such A Good Feeling To Know
Oh It's A Good Feeling To Know Somebody Loves You
Colorado Mountains I Can See Your Distant Skies
You Bringing A Tear Of Joy To My Eyes
And It's A Good Feeling To Know It's Such A Good Feeling To Know
Oh It's A Good Feeling To Know Somebody Loves You
Instrumental Breakdown
When I Need Good Loving I Always Come Home To You

There was a really good dude on the old board that loved Bolan.  You would have liked him.
