"Love Street" as written by and Gerry Shephard....
She lives on Love Street
Lingers long on Love Street
She has a house and garden
I would like to see what happens
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
She lives on Love Street
Lingers long on Love Street
She has a house and garden
I would like to see what happens
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, La, la, la, la, la, la, la

    General CommentI honestly think this song doesn't have much to it besides that it's a message like any other of his song's and in this one he is basically saying is that she's too attached to him and he feels she loves him wayyy more than he loves her, she's just so clingy and in love like in a big daze with him.

    "She has wisdom and knows what to do" Meaning she's a smart girl, she shouldn't get swept off her feet that easy. Also just throwing it out there idk if this is true or not but i heard Pam had a Heroin problem. "She has me and she has you" and maybe she would tell him im going out and she would really go do Heroin and he secretly knew about this but didn't say much. "There's this store where the creatures meet
    I wonder what they do in there" Sarcasm much?

    General CommentLove Street does refer to Rothdell Trail, an offshoot of Laurel Canyon that has apartments situated behind the Canyon Country Store, the store where the "creatures meet". The line "She has robes and she has monkeys", probably is "read" as "She has robes and she has monkeys (who are) lazy diamond studded flunkees, meaning that Pamela was probably hanging with very greasy types that Jim did not appreciate her hanging with, heroin being Pam's drug of choice. Pam was a very strong headed individual, which either attracted Jim or trapped him. Either way, she was it for him, though they both screwed around somewhat. And there is sarcasm in this song, in the way that Jim says he likes it "so far". This was probably their relationship. "Summer Sunday and a year" confuses me though.

    General CommentSo says in the biography of Jim Morrison -"No One Here Gets Out Alive"- jIm and Pamela got a new apartment in Laurel Canyon, on Rothdell Trail, which is the place this song is written about. "Like all other songs about or dedicated to Pamela, there was a hesitancy, a refusal to make a final commitment, a biting sting at the end"

    I encourage anyone and everyone who has been a doors fan and/or morrison fan to read this book, it is unbelievable, great literature.

    General CommentThe book No One Here Gets Out Alive" should be called "Nothing Here But a Bunch of Lies" although the story about it regarding Pam is basically true.

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite doors song, even if it isn't their best song. It is soooo hard to choose just one best doors song.

    General CommentThe words " she has robes and she has monkeys" was orignally "she has robes and she has Junkies" referring yes, to Pam, where she lived if you have ever seen the Doors movie.
