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 by unusual and often complex song 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.

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

    Lyrics
    In the shuffling madness
    Of the locomotive breath,
    Runs the all, time loser,
    Headlong to his death.
    He feels the piston scraping

    Lyrics
    On Preston platform
    Do your soft shoe shuffle dance
    Brush away the cigarette ash that's
    Falling down your pants
    And 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
    If he could take it from the money man

    Lyrics
    Happy and I'm smiling,
    Walking miles to drink your water.
    You know I'd love to love you,
    And above you there's no other.
    We'll go walking out
