"Land of a Thousand Words" is the second single from the American band, the Scissor Sisters' second album, Ta-Dah. It is the fifth track of Ta-Dah, and it was released on 4 December 2006 in the UK and Ireland. The single was released and charted in various European countries including Germany, Austria, Italy, Poland, Norway and the Czech Republic.

Unlike the first release off the album "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'", "Land of a Thousand Words" is a slow ballad track. The video for the song, directed by Brumby Boylston and Chris Dooley of National Television, is a homage to the James Bond film title sequences (in the style of Robert Brownjohn and Maurice Binder), featuring all of the band, and the credits for the music video itself.
