Jethro Tull – A Time for Everything?

Jethro Tull – A Time for Everything?

  Once it seemed there would always be a time for everything. Ages passed I knew at last my life had never been. I’d been missing what time could bring. Fifty years and I’m filled with tears and joys I never cried. Burn the wagon and chain the mule. The past is all denied. There’s […]

Jethro Tull – Another Christmas Song

Jethro Tull – Another Christmas Song

  Hope everybody’s ringing on their own bell, this fine morning. Hope everyone’s connected to that long distance phone. Old man, he’s a mountain. Old man, he’s an island. Old man, he’s a-walking says „I’m going to call, call all my children home.“ Hope everybody’s dancing to their own drum this fine morning — the […]

Jethro Tull – Cold Wind To Valhalla

Jethro Tull – Cold Wind To Valhalla

  And ride with us young bonny lass — with the angels of the night. Crack wind clatter — flesh rein bite on an out-size unicorn. Rough-shod winging sky blue flight on a cold wind to Valhalla. And join with us please — Valkyrie maidens cry above the cold wind to Valhalla. Break fast with […]

Jethro Tull – Requiem

Jethro Tull – Requiem

  Well, I saw a bird today — flying from a bush and the wind blew it away. And the black-eyed mother sun scorched the butterfly at play — velvet veined. I saw it burn. With a wintry storm-blown sigh, a silver cloud blew right on by. And, taking in the morning, I sang — […]

Jethro Tull – My Sunday Feeling

Jethro Tull – My Sunday Feeling

  My Sunday feeling is coming on over me. My Sunday feeling is coming on over me, Now that the night is over. Got to clear my head so I can see. Till I get to put together, that old feeling won’t let me be. Won’t somebody tell me where I laid my head last […]

Jethro Tull – Aqualung

Jethro Tull – Aqualung

  Sitting on the park bench — eyeing little girls with bad intent. Snot is running down his nose — greasy fingers smearing shabby clothes. Aqualung Drying in the cold sun — Watching as the frilly panties run. Aqualung Feeling like a dead duck — spitting out pieces of his broken luck. Whoa, aqualung Sun […]

Jethro Tull – Bungle In The Jungle

Jethro Tull – Bungle In The Jungle

  Walking through forests of palm tree apartments — scoff at the monkeys who live in their dark tents down by the waterhole — drunk every Friday — eating their nuts — saving their raisins for Sunday. Lions and tigers who wait in the shadows — they’re fast but they’re lazy, and sleep in green […]

Jethro Tull – Too Old To Rock’n’Roll Too Young To Die

Jethro Tull – Too Old To Rock’n’Roll Too Young To Die

  The old Rocker wore his hair too long, wore his trouser cuffs too tight. Unfashionable to the end — drank his ale too light. Death’s head belt buckle — yesterday’s dreams — the transport caf’ prophet of doom. Ringing no change in his double-sewn seams in his post-war-babe gloom. Now he’s too old to […]

Jethro Tull – Teacher

Jethro Tull – Teacher

  Well the dawn was coming, heard him ringing on my bell. He said, „My name’s the teacher, that is what I call myself. And I have a lesson that I must impart to you. It’s an old expression but I must insist it’s true. Jump up, look around, find yourself some fun, no sense […]

Jethro Tull – Locomotive Breath

Jethro Tull – Locomotive Breath

  In the shuffling madness Of the locomotive breath, Runs the all-time loser, Headlong to his death. He feels the piston scraping — Steam breaking on his brow — Thank God, he stole the handle and The train won’t stop going — No way to slow down. He sees his children jumping off At the […]
