The Doors – Love Street (1968)

Album: Waiting for the Sun. 1968.

This song is about the street in Laurel Canyon, California where Jim Morrison lived with his girlfriend, Pamela Courson. The address was 1812 Rothdell Trail, but they called it “Love Street” because they could sit on the balcony and watch the hippies go by.
This was released as the B-side of “Hello, I Love You.”
The line, “There’s a store where the creatures meet” refers to the canyon store where all the hippies of the canyon hung out.

Lyrics
[Chorus]
She lives on Love Street
Lingers long on Love Street
She has a house and garden
I would like to see what happens

[Verse 1]
She has robes and she has monkeys
Lazy diamond studded flunkies
She has wisdom and knows what to do
She has me and she has you
She has wisdom and knows what to do
She has me and she has you
I see you live on Love Street
There’s this store where the creatures meet
I wonder what they do in there
Summer Sunday and a year
I guess I like it fine, so far

[Chorus]

[Outro]
La, la, la, la, la, la, la[x5]
