Jethro Tull – We Used To Know


Nights of winter turn me cold
Says it’s time to go
The bad old days they came and went
Try to find new words to say
Giving way to fruitful years
By running slowly
But for your own sake remember times
We used to know
We used to know
Saving up the birds in hand
Made no sense to leave the bed
While in the bush the others land
Then to revisit stony grounds
I think about the bad old days
Could be soon we’ll cease to sound
Each to his own way I’ll go mine
Fears of dying, getting old
Remembering mornings, shillings spent
Best of luck with what you find
We used to know
Whenever I get to feel this way
Slowly upstairs, faster down
We ran the race, the race was won
Take what we can before the man
