(scatting)

Jim (Jim Morrison):
Ah-keep your eyes upon the road
And your hands upon the wheel

They got some bungalows

John:
Got some bungalows, bungalows, bungalows
Back at the roadhouse, got some bungalows, bungalows
They for the people that like to go down slow

Jim & John:
Let it roll, baby, roll
Let it roll, baby, roll
Let it roll, baby, roll
Let it rolllll, all night long


Jim:
You gotta roll, roll, baby, gotta thrill my soul

Jim:
The future's uncertain and the end is always near

John:

Everyone (John, Jim, John Densmore, Robbie Krieger, J. Puglese, and Ray Manzarek):
Let it roll, baby, roll
Let it roll, baby, roll
Let it roll, baby, roll
