the Doors - Morrison Hotel [1970] - Land Ho!

Posted by MojosBeads on January 12, 2013 at 10:55 AM Comments comments (9)

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 living on the land

Got to find my shipmates and walk on foreign sand

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 town liberty

Songs of love and songs of death, songs that 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 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, all right

 

Land land Ho!

Land land Ho!

Well I get back home and I feel all right

You know babe I'm gonna love you tonight

Love you tonight, love you tonight

Land land Ho!

Land land Ho!

Land land Ho!

The human race was dying out

No one left to scream and shout

People walking on the moon

Smog will get you pretty soon

Everyone was hanging out

Hanging up and hanging down

Hanging in and holding fast

Hope our little world will last

 

Yeah along came Mr. Goodtrips

Looking for a new ship

Come on people better climb on board

Come on babe we're going home

Ship of fools, ship of fools

 

The human race was dying out

No one left to scream and shout

People walking on the moon

Smog will get you pretty soon

Ship of fools, ship of fools

Ship of fools, ship of fools

Ship of fools, ship of fools

Ship of fools, ship of fools

Climb on board

Ship's gonna leave you all, far behind

I found my own true love was, on a Blue Sunday

She looked at me and told me

I was the only, one in the world

Now I have found my girl

My girl awaits for me in tender times

My girl is mine, she is the world

She is my girl

 

La, la, la, la

 

My girl awaits for me in tender times

My girl is mine, she is the world

She is my girl

There's blood in the streets it's up to my ankles

She came

There's blood on the streets it's up to my knee

She came

Blood on the streets in the town of Chicago

She came

Blood on the rise it's following me

Think about the break of day

She came and then she drove away

Sunlight in her hair

She came

Blood in the streets runs a river of sadness

She came

Blood in the streets it's up to my thigh

She came

Yeah the river runs down the legs of the city

She came

The women are crying red rivers of weepin'

She came into town and then she drove away

Sunlight in her hair

 

Indians scattered on dawn's highway bleeding

Ghosts crowd the young child's fragile eggshell mind

Blood in the streets in the town of New Haven

Blood stains the roofs and the palm trees of Venice

Blood in my love in the terrible summer

Bloody red sun of fantastic L.A.

Blood screams her brain as they chop off her fingers

Blood will be born in the birth of a nation

Blood is the rose of mysterious union

There's blood in the streets it's up to my ankles

Blood in the streets it's up to my knee

Blood in the streets in the town of Chicago

Blood on the rise it's following me

At first flash of Eden

We race down to the sea

Standing there on Freedom's Shore

Waiting for the sun

Waiting for the sun

Waiting for the sun

 

Can you feel it, now that spring has come

And it's time to live in the scattered sun

Waiting for the sun

Waiting for the sun

Waiting for the sun

Waiting for the sun

Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting

Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting

Waiting for you to, come along

Waiting for you to, hear my song

Waiting for you to, come along

Waiting for you to tell me what went wrong

This is the strangest life I've ever known

YEAH!

When I was back there in seminary school

There was a person there

Who put forth the proposition

That you can petition the Lord with prayer

Petition the lord with prayer

Petition the lord with prayer

You cannot petition the lord with prayer!

 

Can you give me sanctuary

I must find a place to hide

A place for me to hide

 

Can you find me soft asylum

I can't make it anymore

The Man is at the door

 

Peppermint miniskirts chocolate candy

Champion sax and a girl named Sandy

There's only four ways to get unraveled

One is to sleep and the other is travel, da da

One is a bandit up in the hills

One is to love your neighbor 'till

His wife gets home

 

Catacombs, nursery bones, winter women, growing stones

Carrying babies to the river

Streets and shoes, Avenues

Leather riders selling news

The monk bought lunch

Ha ha, he bought a little, Yes, he did, Woo!

This is the best part of the trip, this is the trip, the best part

I really like, what'd he say?

Yeah!

Yeah, right!

Pretty good huh

Huh!

Yeah I'm proud to be a part of this number

 

Successful hills are here to stay

Everything must be this way

Gentle streets where people play

Welcome to the Soft Parade

All our lives we sweat and save

Building for a shallow grave

Must be something else we say

Somehow to defend this place

Everything must be this way

Everything must be this way yeah

 

The Soft Parade has now begun

Listen to the engines hum

People out to have some fun

A cobra on my left

Leopard on my right yeah

The deer woman in a silk dress

Girls with beads around their necks

Kiss the hunter of the green vest

Who has wrestled before

With lions in the night

Out of sight

The lights are getting brighter

The radio is moaning

Calling to the dogs

There are still a few animals

Left out in the yard

But it's getting harder

To describe

Sailors

To the underfed

 

Tropic corridor

Tropic treasure

What got us this far to this mild equator

We need someone or something new

Something else to get us through yeah (c'mon)

Callin' on the dogs

Callin' on the dogs

Oh it's getting harder

Callin' on the dogs

Callin' in the dogs

Callin' all the dogs

Callin' on the gods

You gotta meet me too late baby

Slay a few animals at the crossroads, too late

All in the yard, but it's gettin' harder, by the crossroads

You gotta meet me, oh, we're goin', we're goin great

At the edge of town, tropic corridor, tropic treasure

Havin' a good time, Got to come along, what got us this far

To this mild equator, Outskirts of the city, you and I

We need someone new, Somethin' new, Somethin' else to get us through

Better bring your gun, better bring your gun

Tropic corridor, tropic treasure, we're gonna ride and have some fun

 

When all else fails

We can whip the horse's eyes

And make them sleep

And cry

There will never be another one like you

There will never be another one who can

Do the things you do oh

Will you give another chance

Will you try, little try

Please stop and you remember

We were together

Anyway

All right

And if you have a certain evening

You could lend to me

I'd give it all right back to you

A how it has to be with you

I know your moves and your mind

And your mind

And your mind

And your mind

And your mind

And your mind

And your mind

 

Will you stop and think and wonder

Just what you'll see

Out on the train yard

Nursin' penitentiary

It's gone, I cry, out long

Go head brother

 

Did you stop it to consider

How it will feel

Cold grinded grizzly bear jaws hot on your heels

Do you often stop and whisper

It's Saturday's shore

The whole world's a savior

Who could ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever

Ask for more

Do you remember

Will you stop, will you stop

The pain

And there will never be another one like you

There will never be another one who can

Do the things you do oh

Will you give another chance

Will you try little try

Please stop and you remember

We were together

Anyway, all right

How you must of think and wondered

How I must feel

Out on the meadows

While you run the field

I'm alone for you

And I cry

 

The sweat look at it

Optical promise

Heh, heh, heh

You'll be dead and in hell before I'm born

Sure thing

Brides maid

The only solution

Isn't it amazing

the Doors - Waiting For The Sun [1968] - My Wild Love

Posted by MojosBeads on January 11, 2013 at 5:25 AM Comments comments (8)

My wild love went riding

She rode all the day

She wrote to the devil

And asked him to pay

The devil was wiser

It's time to repent

He asked her to give back

The money she spent

My wild love went riding

She rode to the sea

She gathered together

Some shells for her hair

She rode and she rode on

She rode for a while

Then stopped for an evening

And lay her head down

She rode on to Christmas

She rode to the farm

She rode to Japan

And re-entered a town

By this time the weather

Had changed one degree

She asked for the people

To let her go free

My wild love is crazy

She screams like a bird

She moans like a cat

When she wants to be heard

My wild love went riding

She rode for an hour

She rode and she rested

And then she rode on

Ride c'mon
