Текстове на песни: Jethro Tull. Rupi's Dance. Birthday Card At Christmas.
(Bonus track from The Jethro Tull Christmas Album)
Got a birthday card at Christmas: it made me think of Jesus Christ.
It said, ?I love you? in small letters. I simply had to read it twice.
Wood smoke curled from blackened chimneys. The smell of frost was in the air.
Pole star hovered in the blackness. I looked again: it wasn?t there.
People have showered me with presents. While their minds were fixed on other things.
Sleigh bells, bearded red suit uncles. Pointy trees and angel wings.
I am the shadow in your Christmas. I am the corner of your smile.
Perfunctory in celebration. You offer content but no style.
That little baby Jesus. He got a birthday card or three.
Gold trinkets and cheap frankincense. Some penny baubles for his tree.
Have some time off for good behaviour. Forty days, give or take a few.
Hey there, sweet baby Jesus: Let?s share a birthday card with you.
