weathercock lyrics – jethro tull

good morning weatherc*ck, how did you fare last night
did the cold wind bite you or did you face up to the fright?
when the leaves spin from october and whip around your tail
did you shake from the blast and did you shiver through the gale?

and give us direction, the best of goodwill
put us in touch with fair winds
sing to us softly, hum evening’s song
tell us what the blacksmith has done for you

do you simply reflect changes in the patterns of the sky
or is it true to say the weather heeds, the twinkle in your eye?
do you fight the rush of winter, do you hold snowflakes at bay
do you life the dawn sun from the fields and help him on his way?

good morning weatherc*ck, make this day bright
put us in touch with your fairy winds
sing to us softly, hum evening’s song
point the way to better days, we can share with you

good morning weatherc*ck, make this day bright
put us in touch with your fairy winds
sing to us softly, hum evening’s song
point the way to better days, we can share with you
