Biography

Jethro Tull is a progressive rock / folk rock band which formed in Blackpool, Lancashire, England in 1967. Their music is marked by the initially soulful and bluesy, and later expressively idiosyncratic, vocal style and unique lead flute work of frontman Ian Anderson, and their notable guitarist Martin Barre. Their songs feature unusual and often complex construction. Their music, though starting with blues rock with an experimental flavour, has incorporated elements of classical and celtic folk music, as well as art rock and alternative rock. Anderson has attributed the marked difference between their music and the music of their contemporaries to the group's avoidance of narcotics. While other music groups did influence them in their early years, they quickly developed a unique, instantly recognizable sound.

    Sitting on a park bench
    Eyeing little girls
    With bad intent
    Snot running down his nose
    Greasy fingers smearing shabby clothes... hey, aqualung

    In the shuffling madness
    Of the locomotive breath
    Runs the all time loser
    Headlong to his death
    Oh, he feels the pistons screaming

    On Preston Platform
    Do your soft shoe shuffle dance
    Brush away the cigarette ash
    That's falling down your pants
    And then you sadly wonder

    Lyrics
    Who would be a poor man
    A beggar man, a thief
    If he had a rich man in his hand?
    And who would steal the candy
    From a laughing baby's mouth

    Lyrics
    Happy and I'm smilin', walk a mile to drink your water
    You know I'd love to love you and above you there's no other
    We'll go walking out while others shout of war's disaster
    Oh, we won't give in, let's go living in the past
    Once I used to join in, every boy and girl was my friend
