Land Ho!
The Doors Lyrics


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 four country miles

Singing songs of shady sisters
And old time liberty
Songs of love and songs of death
And songs to set men free

Yea!

I've got three ships and sixteen 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 little girl alive

If I get my hand on a number two
Come back home and marry you
Marry you
Marry you, alright!

Ey, land ho!
Ey, land ho!

Well, if I get back home and I feel alright
You know, babe, I'm gonna love you tonight
Love you right
Love you right

Ey, land ho!
Ey, land ho!
Ey, land ho!

Grandma love 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 four country miles

Singing songs of shady sisters
And old time liberty
Songs of love and songs of death
And songs to set men free

Yeah!

I've got three ships and sixteen 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
Alright!

Ey, land Ho!
Ey, land Ho!

If I get back home and I feel all right
You know baby gonna love you tonight
Love you right, love you right

Ey, land Ho!

Ey, land Ho!

Ey, land Ho!

Grandma loved a sailor, who sailed the frozen sea
Grandpa was that 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 in foreign sands."

This old man was graceful with silver in his smile
He smoked a briar pipe and he walked four country miles
Singing songs of shady sisters in old town Liberty
Songs of love and songs of death and songs to set men free
Ya!

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 little girl alive
If I get my hands on a number two come back home and marry you
Marry you, marry you
Alright!

Eh land ho!
Eh land ho!

Well if I get back home and I feel alright
You know babe I'm gonna love you right, love you right, love you right

Eh land ho!
Eh land ho!
Eh!

This song is extremely underrated.

fultonpace

That's a massive fact. The Doors as a band are like the unconscious mind of rock and roll. Everyone forgets about them (not us obviously) yet their influence can be heard everywhere and people often cite Jim and the band as influence. The Strokes is one band that's obvious and they have admitted it.

Nate Balcerak

Not by me, It isn't.

Robert Rindler

I concur

Ron Bateman

One of the best songs they ever wrote!
