[Verse] (play intro riff)

Sitting on a park bench eyeing little girls with bad intent
Snot running down his nose, greasy fingers smearing shabby clothes……Hey Aqualung
Drying in the cold sun watching as the frilly paintes run……Hey Aqualung
Feeling like a dead duck spitting out pieces of his broken luck……Hey Aqualung


[Chorus]

Gm            F                                     C
Sun streaking cold on an old man wandering lonely
Cm               Gm          F
Taking time, the only way he knows


[Verse] (play intro riff)

Leg hurting bad as he bends to pick a dog-end
He goes down to the bog and warms his feet
Feeling alone, the army’s up the road
Salvation a la mode and a cup of tea
Aqualung, my friend don’t you start away uneasy
You poor old sod, you see, it’s only me


[Chorus]

Gm                F                      Gm
Do you still remember December’s foggy freeze
                         F                                              Gm
When the ice that clings on to your beard is screaming agony

Gm                           F                                     C
And you snatch your rattling last breaths with deep-sea-diver sounds
Cm                         Gm               F
And the flowers bloom like madness in the spring


[Verse] (play intro riff)

Sun streaking cold on an old man wandering lonely
Taking time, the only way he knows
Leg hurting bad as he bends to pick a dog-end
He goes down to the bog and warms his feet
Feeling alone, the army’s up the road
Salvation a la mode and a cup of tea
Aqualung, my friend don’t you start away uneasy
You poor old sod, you see, it’s only me


[Bridge]

  Oh……Aqualung
