only solitaire lyrics – jethro tull

brain-storming habit-forming battle-warning weary
winsome actor spewing spineless chilling lines —
the critics falling over to tell themselves he’s boring
and really not an awful lot of fun.
well who the h*ll can he be when he’s never had v.d.,
and he doesn’t even sit on toilet seats?
court-jesting, never-resting
he must be very cunning
to *ssume an air of dignity
and bless us all with his oratory prowess,
his lame-brained antics and his jumping in the air.
and every night his act’s the same
and so it must be all a game of chess he’s playing
“but you’re wrong, steve: you see, it’s only solitaire.”
