Close to You
The Doors Lyrics


Ah, ladies and gentlemen, I don't know if you realize it,
But tonight you're in for a special treat.
No, no, no, not that, not that!
You only get that treat on full moons.
Besides, I know there's a lot of young people here,
And I would want anybody to

Last time it happened, grown men where weeping.
Policemen where turning in their badges.
Oh, I get, I get, everyone was intimidated tonight by all the security precautions, oh.
Well, just remember their motto is «protect and serve?
I want to get

Close to you baby like black on white,
Close to you baby like the coldest of ice,
Close to you baby like a Siamese twin,
Close to you baby like I'm feeling all right.

I want to get
Close to you baby,
Well, close to you baby,
Close to you baby,
I don't know what to say or do.

I want to get
Close to you baby like the sight of your eye?
Close to you baby like the heat is to fire,
Close to you baby close as I can get,
Close to you baby like water is wet.

I want to get
Close to you baby.
I said close to you baby.
Close to you baby.
Don't know what to say or do.

I want to get
Close to you till I'm feeling all right,
Close to you gonna love you all night,
Close to you in New York City,
I love you so much, woman, you know it's a pity.

I want to get
Close to you baby.
I said close to you baby.
Close to you baby.
Don't know what to say or do.

Well

I want to closer and closer babe
Closer and closer babe
Closer and closer babe
Closer and closer babe
I want to close to you babe
That I don't know what to say or do.

Well, closer and closer babe
Closer and closer babe
Closer and closer babe
Closer and closer babe
I want to close to you babe
Oh babe! We love you!
And you make me feel all right
Make me feel all right
Make Robbie feel all right
And you make John feel all right
And make Jim feel all right
And we want to love you so much to you
I don't know what to say or do

Alright

Ray had the best voice among the three not named Jim Morrison!

I saw The Doors in Lisbon (some 3 years ago), and asked several times for "Close to You", but Ray wasn´t in the mood.... However, in my point of view it is (together with "Universal Mind" the 2 best vocal interpretations from "absolutelly live"
