Jethro Tull - Kissing Willie Lyrics

Breaking hearts in a market town. She eats filet of sole
and washes it down with sparkling wine.
Nice girl, but a bad girl's better. Qualifies in both ways
to my mind. But now she's kissing Willie.

She shows a leg --- shows it damn well. Knows how to drive a man
right back to being a child.
Well, she's a --- nice girl, but her bad girl's better. I can read
it in her cheating eyes and know that in a while --- Well,
she'll be kissing Willie. (My best friend, Willie.)

Willie stands and Willie falls. Willie bangs his head
behind grey factory walls.
She's a --- nice girl, but her bad girl's better. Me and Willie
just can't help come, when she calls.
Now she's kissing Willie. (My best friend, Willie.)

Jethro Tull Kissing Willie Comments
  1. Sharon Constable

    I still like this song, but never saw the (anachronistic) video until now. A better setting might have been an actual 20th century factory town in a northern European city. Anderson's lyric has more sophistication than this farcical Baroque romp would imply.

  2. Freddy Cellophane

    Erratic AND Erotic!

  3. Hello Skinny

    Ok. I didn't know until now that Willie is a penis...

  4. Tiziana Ferreri

    "Banned on the BBC & MTV " While Nicky Minaj's videos shows a better taste?

  5. Magnoler Riccardo

    I had not seen this video since I was 13 ... youtube power!

  6. Ichnusia

    Two persons are kissing willies 😂

  7. Markku Koljonen

    Jep! :D Tinja&Markku

  8. john surabian

    Love It!

  9. Peter Leeson

    Great song and riff. The video is hardly in bad taste , just a bit of fun.

  10. Robert Middlemiss

    Such an obvious and terrible joke, accompanied by a video that even Ian Anderson said was regrettable. But damn, you can't help but like the song, and even the video has its moments. Banned on the BBC & MTV as well, I love how Ian can be so scholarly, sophisticated and classy, yet be so perverse & silly! The director wanted a Benny Hill kind of idea apparently. A nice spoof of the "Dangerous Liaisons" film. From the album "Rock Island" released in 1989.

    Marco Deo

    I liked the video until the last scene. flute in between legs, just bad
