Jefferson Airplane - Wooden Ships lyrics

(UPS) EARTH JULY 1975
Black sails knifing through the pitchblende night
Away from the radioactive landmass madness
From the silver-suited people searching out
Uncontaminated food and shelter on the shores
No glowing metal on our ship of wood only
Free happy crazy people naked in the universe
WE SPEAK EARTH TALK
GO RIDE THE MUSIC

If you smile at me you know I will understand
Cause that is something everybody everywhere does
In the same language

I can see by your coat my friend that you're
From the other side
There's just one thing I got to know
Can you tell me please
Who won?

You must try some of my purple berries
I been eating them for six or seven weeks now
Haven't got sick once
Probably keep us both alive

Wooden ships on the water very free and easy
Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline leave us be
Very free and easy

Sail away where the morning sun goes high
Sail away where the wind blows sweet
And young birds fly

Take a sister by her hand
Lead her far from this barren land

Horror grips us as we watch you die
All we can do is echo your anguished cry
Stare as all your human feelings die
We are leaving, you don't need us

Go and take a sister by her hand
Lead her far from this foreign land
Somewhere where we might laugh again
We are leaving, you don't need us

Sailing ships on the water very free and easy
Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline leave us be
Very free, and gone

No (repeats)

No c'mon,
Go ride the music
C'mon ride it child
