aqualung lyrics – jethro tull

sitting on a park bench
eyeing little girls with bad intent.
snot 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.
neck 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 sod, you see, it’s only me.

do you still remember
december’s foggy freeze
when the ice that
clings onto your beard was
screaming agony.
and you sn*tch 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.
neck 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 sod, you see, it’s only me.

aqualung my friend
don’t you start away uneasy
you poor old sod, you see, it’s only me.

sitting on a park bench
eyeing little girls with bad intent.
snot 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!
