Riders on the storm

Riders on the storm

Into this house we're born

Into this world we're thrown

Like a dog without a bone

An actor out on loan

Riders on the storm

There's a killer on the road

His brain is squirmin' like a toad

Take a long holiday

Let your children play

If you give this man a ride

Sweet family will die

Killer on the road, yeah

 

Girl you gotta love your man

Girl you gotta love your man

Take him by the hand

Make him understand

The world on you depends

Our life will never end

Gotta love your man

yeah

 

Riders on the storm

Riders on the storm

Into this house we're born

Into this world we're thrown

Like a dog without a bone

An actor out on loan

Riders on the storm

 

Riders on the storm

Riders on the storm

Riders on the storm

Riders on the storm

the Doors - L.A. Woman [1971] - The Wasp (Texas Radio And The Big Beat)

I want to tell you about Texas Radio and the Big Beat

It comes out of the Virginia swamps

Cool and slow with money and decision

And a back beat narrow and hard to master

 

Some call it heavenly in its brilliance

Others mean and rueful of the western dream

I love the friends I have gathered together on this thin raft

We have constructed pyramids in honor of our escaping

This is the land where the Pharaoh died

 

The Negroes in the forest brightly feathered

They are saying, forget the night

Live with us in forests of azure

Out here on the perimeter there are no stars

Out here we is stoned, immaculate

 

Now listen to this and I'll tell you about the heartache

I'll tell you about the heartache and the loss of God

I'll tell you about the hopeless night

The meager food my soul forgot

I tell you about the maiden with wrought iron soul

 

I'll tell you this, no eternal reward

To forgive us now for wasting the dawn

 

I'll tell you about Texas Radio and the Big Beat

Soft driven slow and mad like some new language

 

Now listen to this and I'll tell you about the Texas

I'll tell you about the Texas radio

I'll tell you about the hopeless night

The wandering the Western dream

Tell you about the maiden with wrought iron soul

What are they doing in the Hyacinth House

What are they doing in the Hyacinth House

To please the lions, in this day

I need a brand new friend who doesn't bother me

I need a brand new friend who doesn't trouble me

I need someone and who doesn't need me

I see the bathroom is clear

I think that somebody's near

I'm sure that someone is following me, oh yeah

Why did you throw the Jack of Hearts away

Why did you throw the Jack of Hearts away

It was the only card in the deck that I had left to play

 

And I'll say it again, I need a brand new friend

And I'll say it again, I need a brand new friend, the end

Well I took a little downer about an hour ago

Took a look around see which way the wind blow

Where the little girls in their Hollywood bungalows

Are you a lucky little lady in The city of light

Or just another lost angel

City of night, City of night, city of night, city of night, woo c'mon

 

L.A. Woman, L.A. Woman

L.A. Woman Sunday afternoon

L.A. Woman Sunday afternoon

L.A. Woman Sunday afternoon

Drive through your suburbs

Into your blues, into your blues yeah

Into your blue-blue Blues

Into your blues, ohh yeah

 

I see your hair is burning

Hills are filled with fire

If they say I never loved you

You know they are a liar

Driving down your freeways

Midnight alleys roam

Cops in cars, the topless bars

Never saw a woman

So alone, so alone

So alone, so alone

Motel Money Murder Madness

Let's change the mood from glad to sadness

 

Mr. Mojo Rising

Mr. Mojo Rising

Mr. Mojo Rising

Mr. Mojo Rising

Got to keep on rising

Well rising, rising

Woah, ohh yeah

 

Well I took a little downer about an hour ago

Took a look around see which way the wind blow

Where the little girls in their Hollywood bungalows

Are you a lucky little lady in The city of light

Or just another lost angel...city of night

City of night, city of night, city of night, woah c'mon

L.A. Woman, L.A. Woman, L.A. Woman, your my woman

But she's out of reach

Headlight through my window

Shinin' on the wall

Headlight through my window

Though I called and called

 

Windows started tremblin'

With a sonic boom

Windows started tremblin'

With a sonic boom, boom
