Land Ho!
testi da "Morrison Hotel"


Grandma loved a sailor who sailed the frozen sea
Grandpa was a whaler and he took me on his knee

He said, "Son, I'm going crazy from livin' on the land
Got to find my shipmates and walk on foreign sands"

This old man was graceful with silver in his smile
He smoked a briar pipe and he walked our country miles
Singing songs of shady sisters and old time liberty
Songs of love and songs of death, songs to set men free


I've got three ships and sixty men
A course for ports unread
I'll stand at mast, let north winds blow
Till half of us are dead

Land ho!

Well, if I get my hands on a dollar bill
Gonna buy a bottle and drink my fill
If I get my hands on a number five
Gonna skin that litlle girl alive

If I get my hand on a number two
Come back home and marry you
Marry you
Marry you.....all right!
Hey, - land ho!
Hey, - land ho!

Well, if I get back home and I feel all right
You know I'm gonna love you tonight
Love tonight, yeah
Love tonight, yeah
Hey, land ho!
Hey, land ho!
Hey, land ho!
