JETHRO TULL - Mother Goose Lyrics

As I did walk by hampstead fairI came upon mother goose -- so I turned her loose --She was screaming.And a foreign student said to me --Was it really true there are elephants and lions tooIn piccadilly circus? Walked down by the bathing pondTo try and catch some sun.Saw at least a hundred schoolgirls sobbingInto hankerchiefs as one.I don't believe they knewI 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 drives 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 knewThat I was long john silver.Saw johnny scarecrow make his roundsIn his jet-black mac (which he won't give back) --Stole it from a snow man.
