Jethro Tull

Jethro Tull are a British progressive rock group formed in Luton, Bedfordshire, in December 1967. Their music is characterised by the vocals, acoustic guitar, and flute playing of Ian Anderson, who has led the band since its founding, and the guitar work of Martin Barre, who has been with the band since 1969, after he replaced original guitarist Mick Abrahams. more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Then God, the director, smells a rat.
Pulls another rabbit from His hat.
Sniffs the air and He says, 
"Well, that's that I'm going."

The actors milling helplessly 
The script is blowing out to sea.
But what the hell, 
We didn't even pass an audition.
The lines you'll have to improvise.
The words are written 
In the eyes of politicians 
Who despise their fathers.
And so the play necessitates 
That all you boys participate
In fierce competition 
To eliminate each other.

And groupies, on their way to war, 
Get to write the next film score.
But the rock and roll star 
Knows his glory is really nothing.
Men of religion, on the make, 
Pledge an oath they undertake
To make you white for God's own sake, 
And none other.
While ladies get their bedding done 
To win themselves a bouncing son,
But bad girls do it for the fun of just being.
And me, I'm here to sing along,
And I'm not concerned with righting wrongs,
Just asking questions that belong 
Without an answer.
But God is laughing up his sleeve
As He pours himself another cup of tea,
And He waves goodbye to you and me,
At least for now.
