Wonderin' Aloud (Jethro Tull)

lyrics by Ian Anderson - 'And it's only the giving that makes you what you are'

Sleep and his Half-brother Death
Wond'ring aloud how we feel today

Cymon and Iphigenia
Last night sipped the sunset...

Love Among the Ruins
...my hands in her hair

Paolo and Francesca
We are our own saviours as we start

Romeo and Juliet
both our hearts beating life into each other...

The Confession
Wond'ring aloud...

Fire Fancies
...will the years treat us well

The Post
As she floats in the kitchen,

The Remorse of the Emperor Nero after the Murder of his Mother
I'm tasting the smell of toast as the butter runs

The Eve of Saint Agnes
Then she comes,

The Death of Tristram
spilling crumbs on the bed... and I shake my head

The Wedding of St George and the Princess Sabra
And it's only the giving that makes you what you are
