I prefer Wooden Ships to House on Pooneil Corner as well. Although just as songs, I love them equally, I just love the music and the fabulous vocals on Wooden Ships.
Marty, Grace, and Paul all singing their parts, which are all three so distinctive and beautiful is just too much to pass up. Aside from White Rabbit and Somebody to Love, that was my first Airplane song.
Trouble in mind, lord I'm blue
But I won't be blue always
The sun's gonna shine in my door,
Shine in my back door someday
