Mother Goose - Ian Anderson

    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 are elephants and lions too
    in Piccadilly Circus?

    Walked down by the bathing pond
    to try and catch some sun.
    Saw at least a hundred schoolgirls sobbing
    into hankerchiefs 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 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 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 snow man.
