Wind Up (Quad Version)
Jethro Tull

When I was young they packed me off to school

And taught me how not to play the game

I didn't mind if they groomed me for success

Or if they said that I was just a fool

So I left there in the morning

With their God tucked underneath my arm

Their half-assed smiles and the book of rules


And I asked this God a question

And by way of firm reply he said

I'm not the kind you have to wind up on Sundays

So to my old headmaster and to anyone who cares

Before I'm through I'd like to say my prayers


I don't believe you, you got the whole damn thing all wrong

He's not the kind you have to wind up on Sundays

Well, you can excommunicate me

On my way to Sunday school

And have all the Bishops harmonize these lines


How do you dare tell me that I'm my Father's son

When that was just an accident of birth

I'd rather look around me, compose a better song

'Cos that's the honest measure of my worth


In your pomp and all your glory

You're a poorer man than me

As you lick the boots of death born out of fear



When I was young they packed me off to school

And taught me how not to play the game, yeah

I didn't mind if they groomed me for success

Or if they said that I was just a fool


You can excommunicate me

On my way to Sunday school

And have all the Bishops harmonize these lines


In your pomp and all your glory

You're a poorer man than me

As you lick the boots of death born out of fear


When I was young and they packed me off to school

And taught me how not to play the game

I didn't mind if they groomed me for success

Or if they said that I was just a fool

So to my old headmaster and to anyone who cares

Before I'm through I'd like to say my prayers


You can excommunicate me

On my way to Sunday school

And have all the Bishops harmonize these lines


I don't believe you, you had the whole damn thing all wrong

He's not the kind you have to wind up on Sundays
