Fat Man

Lyrics

Don't want to be a fat man, people would think that I was just good fun.
Would rather be a thin man, I am so glad to go on being one.
Too much to carry around with you,no chance of finding a woman who
will love you in the morning and all the night time too.

If I ever direct a film in which at some point a person is working out to attempt to lose weight, this song will play.

I loved all this early Tull stuff. Ian Anderson's vocals are always interesting.

This is the reason I like Tull, they are so diverse.
