Video Gold:-->Jethro Tull



"Lend me your ear
while I call you a fool.
You were kissed by a witch
one night in the wood.
"

~ Jethro Tull ~



Ian Anderson, the British flute-meister and singer of Jethro Tull has been labeled an acquired taste...at least by a few of my classic rock buds...and that's okay. To each their own.

The more I listen...the more I enjoy this band and their unapologetic way of waking your rock mind. I feel like a time traveler when spinning their tunes.

"Witches Promise"...
...is a favorite from "Living In The Past" (1972).  Dig the crazy mugging.
Below...Jethro Tull - circa early 70's.


Lend me your ear while I call you a fool.
You were kissed by a witch one night in the wood,

And later insisted your feelings were true.

The witch's promise was coming,

believing he listened while laughing you flew.

Leaves falling red, yellow, brown, all are the same,
And the love you have found lay outside in the rain.
Washed clean by the water but nursing it's pain.
The witch's promise was coming, and you're looking
elsewhere for your own selfish gain.

Keep looking, keep looking for somewhere to be,
Well, you're wasting your time, they're not stupid like he is.
Meanwhile leaves are still falling, you're too blind to see.

You won't find it easy now, it's only fair.
He was willing to give to you, you didn't care.
You're waiting for more but you've already had your share.
The witch's promise is turning, so don't you wait up
for him, he's going to be late.

Good Stuff.
