Too Many Too*

 


Photo from Jethro Tull's A Passion Play (1973)

 

Too many drivers in too many cars.
Too many lost souls drinking in too many bars.
Too many heroes stepping on too many toes.
Too many yes-men nodding when they really mean no.
Too many lives each cat can lose —
We've got too many too.
Too many too.

Too much sunshine. Too many drops of rain.
Too many equal and average children who will all grow up the same.
Too many fireside politicians holding too many views.
Too many questions — but there are answers too few.
Too many lives each cat can lose —
We've got too many too.

If I were a liar — yes, and you were a cheat —
There would be too many places where we all could meet.
Too many temples where we could worship the beast.
Where he who thinks he had the most in fact has the least.
Too many lives each cat can lose —
I've got too many too.
I've got too many too.

*20 Years Of Jethro Tull, 1988
