  1. jethro tull'ın 1969 tarihli stand up albümünden güzide bir parça. kanımca aqualung'dan sonraki en iyi jethro şarkısı. gitar solosu efsanedir hatta öyle ki eagles hotel california'yı bestelerken bu şarkıdan baya esinlenmişmiş(!). sözleri şöyledir,

    whenever i get to feel this way,
    try to find new words to say,
    i think about the bad old days
    we used to know.
    nights of winter turn me cold --
    fears of dying, getting old.
    we ran the race and the race was won
    by running slowly.

    could be soon well cease to sound,
    slowly upstairs, faster down.
    then to revisit stony grounds,
    we used to know.

    remembering mornings, shillings spent,
    made no sense to leave the bed.
    the bad old days they came and went
    giving way to fruitful years.

    saving up the birds in hand
    while in the bush the others land.
    take what we can before the man
    says its time to go.

    each to his own way ill go mine.
    best of luck in what you find.
    but for your own sake remember times
    we used to know.
