Thick As A Brick - Jethro Tull

 

Really don't mind if you sit this one out
My word's but a whisper, your deafness a shout
I may make you feel but I can't make you think
Your sperm's in the gutter, your love's in the sink
So you ride yourselves over the fields
And you make all your animal deals
And your wise men don't know how it feels...

No matter what I do
For I know I'll never find another you"

This video is a 10 minute mini-documentary (they play the song too) of how the song came about (in the olden days 😊), interviews (past times and in the later years), them getting together 25 years after they stopped performing to sing it and different years until 2014. I hope you view it.  Still a great song.
