The Lyrics

Yeah, well, somebody was gonna do this, so it might as well be me! This is in reference to Jethro Tull keyboard player David Palmer's decision to make the unkindest cut of all and correct the bungle in his jungle . . .(See AmIRight news).
Happy and I'm smiling,
took a while but, now I'm female.
You know I still can rock out,
But I've cut out one small detail.
I am coming out,
while others shout "Hey, where'd your wi-i-ick go?"
Please don't call it sin.
I'll be livin' as a chick!

Once I wore a long beard,
had a dong, feared I would feel shame.
Now this aging rocker,
has big knockers and a new name!
You can call me Dee;
I squat to pee, and wear pink kni-i-i-ckers.
I had to give in,
Now I'm livin' as a chick!

Very good, SP. I liked the wick line best.

They say the first cut is the deepest. Henceforth, will they be known as Jethrine Tull?
Johnny D - January 27, 2004 - Report this comment
Or Jethro Null.

When he went in for the operation, was he A Classic Case? David Palmer did three orchestral albums - the Tull one was A Classic Case, the Genesis one was We Know What We Like and the Floyd one was Objects Of Fantasy. The last one doesn't irritate me like what the Scissor Sisters (ouch!) did to Comfortably Numb - they turned it into music for a workout video.

John, David, Johnny, Pickle: Thanks for all your comments. Though I must admit they were some "cutting" remarks . . . :D

Stray, I'll cut my remarks short here, but nothing else. Great job! It works...unlike Palmer's old unit now...Was expecting to see last line as "Now I'm living with no Dick!" but I forgot this wasn't one of Johnny D's parodies. But I guess your choice is a more positive and forward-looking attitude. "Look not at what we once were but what we are and will be." Someone MUST have said that before but if not I just did. See? Short problem for me...

Stray - Only 5 Votes on this so far? Doesn't anyone else here know the original? Am I "Living Way Too Far In The Past"? Answers: Yes, don't know, Maybe...Say, didn't David Palmer also play on Steely Dan's 1st album("Can't Buy A Thrill") ? I'm thinking maybe he was on the cut "Dirty Work". I'll see if "" can answer that for me and post a note later if I can find out. Gee, I guess Palmer DID eventually find a way to "Buy A Thrill".
