The Jethro Tull Christmas Album is an album released by Jethro Tull on September 30, 2003. The songs are a mix of new material, re-recordings of Tull's own suitably-themed material and arrangements of traditional Christmas music.
Todays tune for Christmas Eve is "A Christmas Song" with Jethro Tull and Ian Anderson, Enjoy!
Merry Christmas to you all!
Once in Royal David's City stood a lowly cattle shed,
where a mother laid her baby.
You'd do well to remember the things He later said.
When you're stuffing yourselves at the Christmas parties,
you'll laugh when I tell you to take a running jump.
You're missing the point I'm sure does not need making;
that Christmas spirit is not what you drink.
So how can you laugh when your own mother's hungry
and how can you smile when the reasons for smiling are wrong?
And if I messed up your thoughtless pleasures,
remember, if you wish, this is just a Christmas song.
Ian Anderson live 2003 with Jethro Tull's "A Christmas Song" - ("Hey, Santa, pass us that bottle, will you?")
