  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
C      D   C   D                         D   C  D                    Asus2 G
Was it really true there are elephants and lions too in piccadilly circus?

D                  Bm              G                 D A
Walked down by the bathing pond to try and catch some sun.
                D              Bm                 G              D  A
Saw at least a hundred schoolgirls sobbing into hankerchiefs as one.
C                                 Asus2 G Asus2 G
I dont 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 sisters 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 dont believe they knew that I was long john silver.
Saw johnny scarecrow make his rounds
In his jet-black mac (which he wont give back) stole it from a snow man.

Used to play this on my 12 string in high school!! Now I am 63 and just got a new 12 string. Was just relaxing and going through some chord progressions and I thought to myself, damn...that sounds like Jethro Tull!! Couldn't remember the name of the song! Found it by googling a few words. Buying the Aqualung CD today so I can jam with it. I play it in the key of D, but I came here for the lyrics. Let's face it, great song no matter what key it's in! Ya all have fun with this one!! Wow, what a throwback!
