Commercial Traveller

This song is by Jethro Tull and appears on the 2015 reissue of the album Too Old to Rock 'n' Roll: Too Young to Die! (1976).

I'm travelling in pots and pans
Call me a sailor, a soldier, a tinker man
But don't ever call me a gypsy
I've made the down-payment on my caravan

Now, you're looking at a commercial traveller
Commercial traveller
Now, maybe you think that I haven't a fiver to put to my name
Well, it's all the same to me 'cause I'm rolling
Filthy rich

I'll visit you when your old man's away
I'll give you a good price on the time of day
And never say no to a gypsy
I can do you a turn on the front room floor

Madam, you're looking at a commercial traveller
Commercial traveller
Now, maybe you think that I haven't a fiver to put to my name
It's all the same to me 'cause I'm rolling

I live under a flyover out in the green
The camp is an eyesore like you've never seen
And the council came 'round to move me away
But I was moving anyway

I'm a commercial traveller
Commercial traveller
Now, maybe you think that I haven't a fiver to put to my name

I'm travelling in pots and pans
Call me a sailor, a soldier, a tinker man
But don't ever call me a gypsy
I've made the down-payment on my caravan

Now, you're looking at a commercial traveller
Commercial traveller
Now, maybe you think that I haven't a right to be a traveller
Commercial traveller
Now, maybe you think that I haven't a fiver to put to my name
Well, it's all the same to me 'cause I'm rolling
Filthy rich
