Mother Goose Lyrics

Artist: Jethro Tull
Album: Aqualung

As I did walk by Hampstead Fair
I came upon Mother Goose - So I turned her loose -she was screaming.
And a foreign student said to me - was it really true there elephants and lions too in Picadilly Circus?

Walked down by the bathing pond to try and catch some sun.
Saw at least a hundred schoolgirls sobbing into handkerchiefs as one.
I don't believe they knew I was a schoolboy.

And a bearded lady said to me - if you start your raving, and your misbehaving - you'll be sorry.
Then the chicken-fancier came to play - with his long red beard (and his sister's weird:
She drivs a lorry).

Laughed down by the putting green - I popped 'em in their holes.
Four and twenty labourers were labouring - digging up their gold.
I don't believe they knew that I was Long John Silver.

Saw Johnny Scarecrow make his rounds in his jet-black 'mac (which he won't give back) - stole it from a snowman.
