"All hands on deck, we"ve run afloat" I heard the captain cry "Explore the ship, replace the cook, let no one leave alive!" Across the straits, around the Horn, how far can sailors fly? A twisted path, our tortured course, and no one left alive
We sailed for parts unknown to man, where ships come home to die No lofty peak, nor fortress bold, could match our captain's eye Upon the seventh seasick day we made our port of call A sand so white, and sea so blue, no mortal place at all
We fired the gun, and burnt the mast, and rowed from ship to shore The captain cried, we sailors wept, our tears were tears of joy Now many moons and many Junes have passed since we made land A salty dog, this seaman's log, your witness my own hand

Geffen Records made history on June 27, 1994 when Aerosmith's "Head First" became the first major label song made available for exclusive digital download. Download speeds at the time were so slow it took around 75 minutes to download the track.
