My first and last time with you
And we had some fun
Went walking through the trees, yeah
And then I kissed you once
Oh I want to see you soon
But I wonder how
It was a new day yesterday
But it's an old day now
Spent a long time looking for a game to play
My luck should be so bad
Now to turn out this way
Oh I had to leave today
Just when I thought I'd found you
It was a new day yesterday
But it's an old day now

"Jeffrey Goes To Leicester Square"
music and lyrics by Ian Anderson

Stand Up (1969), Stand Up (remaster) (2002)

Bright city woman walking down
Leicester Square everyday
Gonna get a piece of my mind
You think you're not a piece of my kind
Ev'rywhere the people looking
Why don't you get up and sing?
Bright city woman where did you learn
All the things you say?
You listen to the newsmen on TV
You may fool yourself but you don't fool me
I'll see you in another place, another time
You may be someone's, but you won't be mine

"Back To The Family"
music and lyrics by Ian Anderson

Stand Up (1969), 25th Anniversary Boxed Set: Potpourri - Live Across The World and Through The Years (1993), Stand Up (remaster) (2002)

My telephone wakes me in the morning
Have to get up to answer the call
So I think I'll go back to the family
Where no one can ring me at all
Living this life has its problems
So I think that I'll give it a break
Oh, I'm going back to the family
'Cos I've had about all I can take
Master's in the counting house
Counting all his money
Sister's sitting by the mirror
She thinks her hair looks funny
And here am I thinking to myself
Just wond'ring what things to do
I think I enjoyed all my problem
Where I did not get nothing for free
Oh, I'm going back to the family
Doing nothing is bothering me
I'll get a train back to the city
That soft life is getting me down
There's more fun away from the family
Get some action when I pull into town
Everything I do is wrong
What the hell was I thinking?
Phone keeps ringing all day long
I got no time for thinking
And every day has the same old way
Of giving me too much to do

"Look Into The Sun"
music and lyrics by Ian Anderson

Stand Up (1969), A Little Light Music (1992), Stand Up (remaster) (2002)

Took a sad song of one sweet evening
I smiled and quickly turned away
It's not easy singing sad songs
But still the easiest way I have to say
So when you look into the sun
And see the things we haven't done
Oh was it better then to run
Than to spend the summer crying
Now summer cannot come anyway
I had waited for time to change her
The only change that came was over me
She pretended not to want love
I hope she was only fooling me
So when you look into the sun
Look for the pleasures nearly won
Or was it better then to run
Than to spend the summer singing
And summer could have come in a day
So if you hear my sad song singing
Remember who and what you nearly had
It's not easy singing sad songs
When you can sing the song to make me glad
So when you look into the sun
And see the words you could have sung
It's not too late, only begun
We can still make summer
Yes, summer always comes anyway
So when you look into the sun
And see the words you could have sung
It's not too late, only begun, look into the sun

"Nothing Is Easy"
music and lyrics by Ian Anderson

Stand Up (1969), 'M.U.': The Best of Jethro Tull (1976), 25th Anniversary Boxed Set: Carnegie Hall Live, New York City 1970 and Potpourri - Live Across The World and Through The Years (1993), The Best of Jethro Tull: The Anniversary Collection (1993), 36 Greatest Hits (1998), Living With The Past (2002), Stand Up (remaster) (2002), The Essential Jethro Tull (2003), Nothing Is Easy: Live At The Isle of Wight 1970 (2004)

Nothing is easy
Though time gets you worrying my friend
It's o.k.
Just take your life easy
And stop all that hurrying, be happy my way
When tension starts mounting
And you've lost count
Of the pennies you've missed
Just try hard and see why
They're not worrying me
They're last on my list, nothing's easy
Nothing is easy
You'll find that the squeeze
Won't turn out so bad
Your fingers may freeze
Worse things happen at sea
There's good times to be had
So if you're alone and you're down to the bone
Just give us a play
You'll smile in a while and discover
That I'll get you happy my way, nothing's easy

"Fat Man"
music and lyrics by Ian Anderson

Stand Up (1969), 'M.U.': The Best of Jethro Tull (1976), 20 Years of Jethro Tull: I. Radio Archives and The Rare Tracks (Released But Only Just) (1988), Aqualung 25th Anniversary Special Edition (1996), 36 Greatest Hits (1998), Living With The Past (2002), Stand Up (remaster) (2002), The Essential Jethro Tull (2003), The Best of Acoustic Jethro Tull (2007)

Don't want to be a fat man
People would think that I was just good fun
Would rather be a thin man
I am so glad to go on being one
Too much to carry around with you
No chance of finding a woman
Who will love you in the morning
Don't want to be a fat man
Have not the patience to ignore all that
Hate to admit to myself
Half of my problems came from being fat
Won't waste my time feeling sorry for him
I seen the other side to being thin
Roll us both down a mountain
And I'm sure the fat man would win

"We Used To Know"
music and lyrics by Ian Anderson

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 we'll 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 it's time to go
Each to his own way I'll go mine
Best of luck in what you find
But for your own sake remember times
We used to know

"Reasons For Waiting"
music and lyrics by Ian Anderson

Stand Up (1969), 25th Anniversary Boxed Set: Carnegie Hall 1970 (1993), Stand Up (remaster) (2002)

What a sight for my eyes to see you in sleep
Could it stop the sun rise hearing you weep?
You're not seen, you're not heard
But I stand by my word
Came a thousand miles
Just to catch you while you're smiling
What a day for laughter and walking at night
Me following after, your hand holding tight
And the memory stays clear
With the song that you hear
If I can but make the words awake the feeling
What a reason for waiting
And dreaming of dreams
So here's hoping you've faith
In impossible schemes
That are born in the sigh of the wind blowing by
While the dimming light brings
The end to a night of loving

"For A Thousand Mothers"
music and lyrics by Ian Anderson

Stand Up (1969), 25th Anniversary Boxed Set: Carnegie Hall Live, New York City 1970 (1993), Stand Up (remaster) (2002), Nothing Is Easy: Live At The Isle of Wight 1970 (2004)

Did you hear mother saying
I'm wrong but I know I'm right?
Did you hear father calling
My name into the night?
Saying I'll never be what I am now
Telling me I'll never find what I've already found
It was they who were wrong
And for them here's a song
Did you hear baby
Come back and tell you the things he's seen?
Did it surprise you
To be picked up at eight in a limousine?
Doing the things he's accustomed to do
Which at one time it seemed like a dream
Now it's true and unknowing
You made it all happen this way
