Another one of my favourites: 

Wild Mountain Thyme

Oh, the summer time is coming,
And the trees are blooming,
And the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather.

Will you go, lassie, will you go?
And we'll all go together
To pull wild mountain thyme
All around the blooming heather,
Will you go, lassie, go?

I will build my love a bower
By yon clear and crystal fountain,
And all around the bower,
I'll pile flowers from the mountain.

If my true love, she won't have me,
I will surely find another
To pull wild mountain thyme
All around the blooming heather.

Oh, the summertime is coming
And thre trees are blooming
And the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather.

(And no, it's not traditional - 1957, more likely - but beautiful nonetheless)

Because I have to study and do not feel too inspired anyway :-)

That's one of my all-time favourites by Jethro Tull (the whole Heavy Horses LP is excellent imo), and the late-70s promotion video is just so funny ^^
I felt like I had to post this because everyone always only knows their Locomotive Breath, and there's sooo much more to this band. Plus, it's my dad's fault I like them, like with so many others. :-) 

Also check out Heavy Horses, Aqualung, Budapest, The Minstrel in the Gallery, Wondrin' Aloud, and all those others... :-)

Does anyone know whether there are JT userpics out there? I simply love their early LP covers.
