Mother Goose (song)
"Mother Goose" is a song by the British multi-genre band Jethro Tull. It is the fourth track from their album Aqualung which was released in 1971. The lyrics are a pastiche of surreal figures based on images that Ian Anderson saw while wandering around Hampstead Heath. The song is mostly acoustic much like "Cheap Day Return" or "Slipstream", from the same album. The song appeared on The Best of Jethro Tull - The Anniversary Collection and was performed (as was the entire Aqualung album) on 23 November 2004 at the XM Studios and captured on the album Aqualung Live.
