Today it was cold
There was ice all around
But, the ship, it was happy
We were homeward bound

Sea dream, daydreams loom around
It’s been so long since they’ve been found
Pictures painted by a virgin’s hand
That someday soon will please her man
Today it was calm
There was fog all around
But, the ship it was happy
We were homeward bound
And I’m on the masthead looking for land
Just a-waiting to be touched by that virgin’s hand
Oh, land…
Oh, land….

A roof of straw and seaweed walls
Sun’s itself on the beach’s halls
Quiz the mermaids in the cove
Well, they say that she’s waiting
And growing quit old
Today, it was warm
There was sun all around
And the ship it was happy
We were homeward bound
And I’m on the masthead just looking for land
Just a-waiting to be touched by that virgin’s hand
Oh, land…..
Oh, land….
Land…ho!
