slow marching band lyrics – jethro tull

would you join a slow marching band
and take pleasure in your leaving
as the ferry sails and tears are dried
and cows come home at evening?

would you get behind a slow marching band
and join together in the p*ssing
of all we shared through yesterdays
in sorrows neverlasting?

take the hand and take a bow
you played for me, that’s all for now
oh, and never mind the words
just hum along and keep on going

walk on slowly, don’t look behind you
don’t say goodbye, love, i won’t remind you

dream of me as the nights draw cold
still marking time through winter
you paid the piper and called the tune
and you marched the band away

take the hand and take a bow
you played for me, that’s all for now
oh, and never mind the words
just hum along and keep on going

walk on slowly, don’t look behind you
don’t say goodbye, love, i won’t remind you
oh, walk on slowly, don’t look behind you
don’t say goodbye, love, i won’t remind you, remind you
