Jethro Tull ❖ Aqualung ( 1971 )

Aqualung is the fourth studio album by the rock band Jethro Tull. Released in 1971, Aqualung, despite the band's disagreement, is regarded as a concept album featuring a central theme of "the distinction between religion and God". The album's "dour musings on faith and religion" have marked it as "one of the most cerebral albums ever to reach millions of rock listeners". Aqualung's success signalled a turning point in the band's career, who went on to become a major radio and touring act.

Recorded at Island Records' studio in London, it was their first album with John Evan as a full-time member, their first with new bassist Jeffrey Hammond, and last album featuring Clive Bunker on drums. Something of a departure from the band's previous work, the album features more acoustic material than previous releases; and—inspired by photographs of homeless people on the Thames Embankment taken by singer Ian Anderson's wife Jennie—contains a number of recurring themes, addressing religion along with Anderson's own personal experiences.

Aqualung has sold more than seven million units worldwide according to Anderson, and is thus Jethro Tull's best selling album. The album was generally well-received critically, and has been included on several music magazine "best of" lists. The album spawned two singles, "Hymn 43" and "Locomotive Breath".

Jethro Tull ❖ Aqualung ( Track 1 )
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61PMgwdGOQg

Sitting on the park bench
Eyeing little girls with bad intent.
Snot is running down his nose
Greasy fingers smearing shabby clothes.

Hey Aqualung
Drying in the cold sun
Watching as the frilly panties run.
Hey Aqualung
Feeling like a dead duck
Spitting out pieces of his broken luck.
Whoa, Aqualung

Sun streaking cold
An old man wandering lonely.
Taking time
The only way he knows.
Leg hurting bad,
As he bends to pick a dog-end
He goes down to the bog
And warms his feet.

Feeling alone
The army's up the road
Salvation à la mode and a cup of tea

Aqualung my friend
Don't you start away uneasy
You poor old sot, you see, it's only me.

Do you still remember
The December's foggy freeze
When the ice that
Clings on to your beard was
Screaming agony.
And you snatch your rattling last breaths
With deep-sea-diver sounds,
And the flowers bloom like
Madness in the spring.

Sun streaking cold
An old man wandering lonely.
Taking time
The only way he knows.
Leg hurting bad,
As he bends to pick a dog-end
He goes down to the bog
And warms his feet.

Feeling alone
The army's up the road
Salvation à la mode and a cup of tea

Aqualung my friend
Don't you start away uneasy
You poor old sot, you see, it's only me.

Aqualung my friend
Don't you start away uneasy
You poor old sot, you see, it's only me.

Sitting on the park bench
Eyeing little girls with bad intent.
Snot is running down his nose
Greasy fingers smearing shabby clothes.

Hey Aqualung
Drying in the cold sun
Watching as the frilly panties run.
Hey Aqualung
Feeling like a dead duck
Spitting out pieces of his broken luck.
Hey Aqualung

Whoa, Aqualung

Jethro Tull: Aqualung ❖ Cross-Eyed Mary ( Track 2 )
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqC1yInWBMo

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
Cross-eyed Mary goes jumping in again
She signs no contract but she always plays the game
She dines in Hampstead village on expense accounted gruel
And the jack-knife barber, drops her off at school

Laughing in the playground gets no kicks from little boys
Would rather make it with a letching grey
Or maybe her attention is drawn by Aqualung
Who watches through the railings as they play
Cross-eyed Mary finds it hard to get along
She's a poor man's rich girl and she'll do it for a song
She's the rich man stealer but her favour's good and strong
She's the Robin Hood of Highgate, helps the poor man get along

Laughing in the playground gets no kicks from little boys
Would rather make it with a letching grey
Or maybe her attention is drawn by Aqualung
Who watches through the railings as they play
Cross-eyed Mary goes jumping in again
She signs no contract but she always plays the game
She dines in Hampstead village on expense accounted gruel
And the jack-knife barber, drops her off at school

Cross-eyed Mary

Oh Mary

Jethro Tull: Aqualung ❖ Mother Goose ( Track 4 )
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBAN1thF0-4

As I did walk by Hampstead Fair
I came upon Mother Goose
So I turned her loose --
But she was screaming.

And a foreign student said to me,
"Was it really true
There are elephants and lions too
In Piccadilly Circus?"

Walked down by the bathing pond
To try and catch some sun.
Saw at least a hundred schoolgirls
Sobbing into handkerchiefs as one.
I don't believe they knew
I was a schoolboy.

And a bearded lady said to me,
"If you start your raving
And your misbehaving
You'll be sorry."

Then the chicken-fancier came to play
With his long red beard
And his sister's weird:
She drives a lorry.

Laughed down by the putting green
Now I popped 'em in their holes.
Four and twenty labourers were labouring
And digging up their gold.
I don't believe they knew
That I was Long John Silver.

Saw Johnny Scarecrow make his rounds
In his jet-black mac
Which he won't give back
Stole it from a snowman.

As I did walk by Hampstead Fair
I came upon Mother Goose
So I turned her loose
But she was screaming.

Walked down by the bathing pond
To try and catch some sun.
Must have been at least a hundred schoolgirls
Sobbing into handkerchiefs as one.
I don't believe they knew
I was a schoolboy.

Jethro Tull: Aqualung ❖ Up to Me ( Track 6 )
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIbWdiNAyzc

Take you to the cinema
And leave you in a Wimpy Bar
You tell me that we've gone too far
Come running up to me

Make a scene at Cousin Jack's
Leave him to put the bottles back
Mends his glasses that I cracked
Well, that's one up to me

Oh, it's up to me, hey,
Up to me

I buy a Silver Cloud to ride
Pack a tennis club inside
Trouser cuffs hung far too wide
Well, it was up to me

Tyres down on your bicycle
Your nose feels like an icicle
The yellow fingered smoky girl
Is looking up to me

Whoa, you know it's up to me. Yeah

Well, I'm a common working man
With a half of bitter bread and jam
And if it pleases me I'll put one on you man
When the copper fades away

Whoa, it's up to me, ow!
Whoa, I said it's up to me. Yeah!

The rainy season comes to pass
The day-glo pirate sinks at last
And if I laughed a bit too fast
Well, it was up to me

Take you to the cinema
And leave you in a Wimpy Bar
You tell me that we've gone too far
Come running up to me

Whoa, you know it's up to me, yeah
Well, it's up to me, yeah

Jethro Tull: Aqualung ❖ My God ( Track 7 )
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEGagsNNhDY

People, what have you done?
Locked Him in His golden cage, golden cage
Made Him bend to your religion
Him—resurrected from the grave, from the grave

He is the god of nothing
If that's all that you can see
You are the god of everything
He's inside you and me

So lean upon Him gently
And don't call on Him to save
You from your social graces
And the sins you used to waive, you used to waive

The bloody Church of England
In chains of history
Requests your earthly presence
At the vicarage for tea

And the graven image you-know-who
With His plastic crucifix
(he's got him fixed)
Confuses me as to who and where and why
As to how he gets his kicks, he gets his kicks

Confessing to the endless sin
The endless whining sounds
You'll be praying 'til next Thursday
To all the gods that you can count

Jethro Tull: Aqualung ❖ Hymn 43 ( Track 8 )
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9AMby6djSzg

Oh, father high in heaven
Smile down upon your son
Whose busy with his money games
His women and his gun

Oh, Jesus, save me!

And the unsung Western hero
He killed an Indian or three
And then he made his name in Hollywood
To set the white man free

Oh, Jesus, save me!

If Jesus saves, well, He'd better save Himself
From the gory glory seekers who use His name in death

Oh, Jesus, save me!

If Jesus saves, well, He'd better save Himself
From the gory glory seekers who use His name in death

Oh, Jesus, save me!

Well, I saw him in the city
And on the mountains of the moon
His cross was rather bloody
He could hardly roll His stone

Oh, Jesus, save me!

Jethro Tull: Aqualung ❖ Slipstream ( Track 9 )
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnXjQ99rcok

Well the lush separation enfolds you
And the products of wealth
Push you along on the bow wave
Of their spiritless undying selves
And you press on God's waiter your last dime
As he hands you the bill
And you spin in the slipstream
Timeless unreasoning
Paddle right out of the mess

And you paddle right out of the mess

Jethro Tull: Aqualung ❖ Locomotive Breath ( Track 10 )
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64k6cZ9fGpg

In the shuffling madness
Of the locomotive breath
Runs the all-time loser
Headlong to his death

Oh, he feels the piston scraping
Steam breaking on his brow
Old Charlie stole the handle
And the train—it won't stop going
No way to slow down

He sees his children jump off
At the stations one by one
His woman and his best friend
In bed and having fun

Oh, he's crawling down the corridor
On his hands and knees
Old Charlie stole the handle and
The train—it won't stop going
No way to slow down

He hears the silence howling
Catches angels as they fall
And the all-time winner
Has got him by the balls

Oh, he picks up Gideon's Bible
Open at page one
I thank God he stole the handle and
The train—it won't stop going
No way to slow down

No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
