But weve got a couple of thi... wait a second man!
Look, weve just got a couple of little things that weve gotta tell you about.
The fire-marshal is not gonna let this show go on,
And I just had a long meeting with him, and man,
This is no joke, you either gotta sit down, and you gotta go back to your seats,
You gotta make isles, and thats it man. you gotta move back.

Who Do You Love
Yeeeah
Yeeeah
Yeeeah
Yeeeah
I walked 47 miles on barbed-wire,
Cobra-snake for a necktie.
Built a house by the roadside,
Made of rattlesnake hide.

Brand new chimney up on top,
Made out of human skulls.
Come on baby take a walk with me,
Tell me who do you love?

Who do you love, now?
Who do you love, now?
Who do you love, babe?
I say: who now, who do you love?

Tombstone head and a graveyard mind,
Just 22 and I dont mind dying.
Rode around the town with a rattlesnake whip,
Come on baby dont give me no lip.

Who do you love, now?
Who do you love?
Who do you love, child?
I said: who, baby, who do you love?

Night is dark, the sky was blue,
Down the alley the ice wagon flew.
Hit a bump, somebody screamed,
Shoulda heard just what I seen.

Do you love me, babe?
Do you love her, yeah
Do you love me, babe?
Do you love it, yeah
Yeeeeeah

Well, who, baby, who do you love?
What do you love, now?

Stuck her with knives in the side of the dawn

Who put forth the proposition
That you can petition the lord with prayer
Petition the lord with prayer
Petition the lord with prayer
You cannot petition the lord with prayer!

Lions In The Street
Lions in the street and roaming
Dogs in heat, rabid, foaming
A beast caged in the heart of a city
The body of his mother
Rotting in the summer ground.
He fled the town.
He went down south and crossed the border
Left the chaos and disorder
Back there over his shoulder.

One morning he awoke in a green hotel
With a strange creature groaning beside him.
Sweat oozed from its shiny skin.

Is everybody in?
The ceremony is about to begin.


Wake Up
Wake up!
You cant remember where it was.
Had this dream stopped?
The snake was pale gold
Glazed & shrunken.
We were afraid to touch it.
The sheets were hot dead prisons.

And she was beside me.
Old, shes numb.
Her dark, red hair,
The white soft skin.

Now, run to the mirr

A Little Game
Once I had a little game
I liked to crawl back in my brain
I think you know the game I mean
I mean the game called go insane
Now you should try this little game
Just close your eyes forget your name
Forget the world, forget the people
And well erect a different steeple.

This little game is fun to do.
Just close your eyes, no way to lose.
And Im right here, Im going too.
Release control, were breaking through.

The Hill Dwellers
Way back deep into the brain
Way back past the realm of pain
Back where theres never any rain.
And the rain falls gently on the town,
And over the heads of all of us.
And in the labyrinth of streams
Beneath, quiet unearthly presence of
Nervous hill dwellers in the gentle hills around,
Reptiles abounding
Fossils, caves, cool air heights.

Each house repeats a mold
Windows rolled
A beast car locked in against morning.
All now sleeping
Rugs silent, mirrors vacant,
Dust blind under the beds of lawful couples
Wound in sheets.
And daughters, smug
With semen eyes in their nipples

Wait
Theres been a slaughter here!

Not To Touch The Earth
Not to touch the earth
Not to see the sun
Nothing left to do, but
Run, run, run
Lets run
Lets run
House upon the hill
Moon is lying still
Shadows of the trees
Witnessing the wild breeze
Cmon baby run with me
Lets run
Run with me
Run with me
Run with me
Lets run
The mansion is warm, at the top of the hill
Rich are the rooms and the comforts there
Red are the arms of luxuriant chairs
And you wont know a thing till you get inside
Dead presidents corpse in the drivers car
The engine runs on glue and tar
Come on along, not goin very far
To the east to meet the czar
Run with me
Run with me
Run with me
Lets run
Whoa!
Some outlaws lived by the side of a lake
The ministers daughters in love with the snake
Who lives in a well by the side of the road
Wake up, girl, were almost home
Ya, cmon!
We should see the gates by mornin
We should be inside the evenin
Sun, sun, sun
Burn, burn, burn
Soon, soon, soon
Moon, moon, moon
I will get you
Soon!, soon!, soon!
I am the lizard king
I can do anything

Names Of The Kingdom
We came down
The rivers & highways
We came down from
Forests & falls
We came down from
Carson & springfield
We came down from
Phoenix enthralled

& I can tell you
The names of the kindom
I can tell you
The things that you know

The Palace Of Exile
For seven years I dwelt
In the loose palace of exile,
Playing strange games
With the girls of the island.
Now I have come again
To the land of the fair, & the strong, & the wise.

Brothers & sisters of the pale forest
Children of night
Who among you will run with the hunt?

Now night arrives with her purple legion.
Retire now to your tents & to your dreams.
Tomorrow we enter the town of my birth.
I want to be ready.

The doors! the doors!
Were out of time, thank you very much. were out of time.

All right, weve got time for one more, lets do it one more time.

Soul Kitchen
Well, the clock says its time to close now
I guess Id better go now
Id really like to stay here all night
The cars crawl past all stuffed with eyes
Street lights share their hollow glow
Your brain seems bruised with numb surprise
Still one place to go
Still one place to go
Let me sleep all night in your soul kitchen
Warm my mind near your gentle stove
Turn me out and Ill wander baby
Stumblin in the neon groves
Well, your fingers weave quick minarets
Speak in secret alphabets
I light another cigarette
Learn to forget, learn to forget
Learn to forget, learn to forget
Let me sleep all night in your soul kitchen
Warm my mind near your gentle stove
Turn me out and Ill wander baby
Stumblin in the neon groves
Well the clock says its time to close now
I know I have to go now
I really want to stay here
All night, all night, all night





The Doors Chm, myslím, že jsem se tam trochu producíroval...
(Jim Morrison, březen 1969)
The Doors Nějak se to vymklo z rukou a natáčení trvalo hrozně dlouho. Natáhlo se to na devět měsíců. Album má být jako kniha povídek, spojených navzájem, má být jednotné ve stylu a náladě, a právě to "The Soft Parade" chybí.
(Jim Morrison)
