Jack-in-the-green

Jethro Tull


Have you seen Jack-In-The-Green?

With his long tail hanging down.

He quietly sits under every tree

in the folds of his velvet gown.

He drinks from the empty acorn cup

the dew that dawn sweetly bestows.

And taps his cane upon the ground

signals the snowdrops it's time to grow.


It's no fun being Jack-In-The-Green

no place to dance, no time for song.

He wears the colours of the summer soldier

carries the green flag all the winter long.

Jack, do you never sleep

does the green still run deep in your heart?

Or will these changing times,

motorways, powerlines,

keep us apart?

Well, I don't think so

I saw some grass growing through the pavements today.


The rowan, the oak and the holly tree

are the charges left for you to groom.

Each blade of grass whispers Jack-In-The-Green.

Oh Jack, please help me through my winter's night.

And we are the berries on the holly tree.

Oh, the mistlethrush is coming.

Jack, put out the light.

Jethro Tull is a progressive rock / folk rock band which formed in Blackpool, Lancashire, England in 1967.
