About the song
Written by Marc Bolan, the song was originally released by the British glam rock group T.Rex as a single from their second album Electric Warrior in 1971
The music and rhythm are similar to that of the Howlin' Wolf song "You'll Be Mine", written by Willie Dixon. In interviews, Marc Bolan has acknowledged that he "lifted it from a Howlin' Wolf song". "Jeepster" has also similarities with Roy Orbison's song "You're My Baby", written by Johnny Cash.

You're so sweet You're so fine I want you all and everything Just to be mine 'Cos you're my baby 'Cos 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 Just like a car You're pleasing to behold I'll call you Jaguar If I may be so bold The wild winds blow Upon your frozen cheeks The way you flip your hip It always makes me weak Your motivation Is so sweet Your vibrations Are burning up my feet Girl I'm just a jeepster For your love Girl I'm just a vampire For your love I'm gonna suck you.
