"What If?" as written by and Miles Davis....
Dateline the early 1970's
Now world famous rock quartet
The Doors, lead singer James Morrison
Has recently died
While down but certainly not out
The surviving members desperately
Tried to piece together their broken lives
Every option was considered, a new name
The windows, the walls, even the door knobs
Ultimately, the band opted to carry on
Under the original doors name
Auditioning new singers.
One young hopeful, a struggling art
Student from Athens Georgia,
Fred Schneider, who went on to front
The hugely successful B-52's tried
Out for this position
The lyrical style of the young Schneider
More known for his quick wit and
Impromptu jams was hard fought
To match the well structured
Melodies of the classic doors numbers.
Let's listen in
Love me two times
Love me three times
I've got me a car
It seats about twenty
So hurry up and bring
Your juke box money
You're livin' in your own private Idaho
Livin in your own private Idaho
This is the end
This is the end
Wammy kiss me wammy hug
Revitalize me give me wammy love yea!
Light my fire
We couldn't get much hire
He was in a jam
He's in a giant clam
