big dipper lyrics – jethro tull

the mist rolls off the beaches:
the train rolls into the station.
weekend happiness seekers pent-up saturation.
well, we don’t mean anyone any harm,
we weren’t on the glasgow train.
see you at the pleasure beach:
roller-coasting heroes.
big dipper riding
we’ll give the local lads a hiding
if they keep us from the ladies
hanging out in the penny arcades.
shaking up the tower ballroom
throwing up in the bathroom.
landlady’s in the backroom
i’m the big dipper
it’s the weekend rage.

rich widowed landlady give me
your spare front door key.
if you’re 39 or over,
i’ll make love to you next thursday
i may stay over for a week or two
drop a postcard to my mum.
i’ll see you at the waltzer
we’ll go big-dipping daily.
