The Changeling
The Doors Lyrics


Uh!
Uh-ah!
Ged-ow!

I live uptown
I live downtown
I live all around

I had money, and I had none
I had money, and I had none
But I never been so broke that I couldn't leave town

I'm a changeling
See me change
I'm a changeling
See me change

I'm the air you breathe
Food you eat
Friends you greet in the sullen street, wow

See me change
See me change

Get loose!

I live uptown
I live downtown
I live all around

I had money, yeah, and I had none
I had money, yeah, and I had none
But I never been so broke that I couldn't leave town

Well, I'm the air you breathe
Food you eat
Friends you greet in the sullen street, wow

Ooh, ma!
Uh, ah!

You gotta see me change
See me change
Yeah, I'm leavin' town
On a midnight train
Gotta see me change
Change, change, change
Change, change, change
Change, change, change
Change, change, change
Whoa, change, change, change

See me change
I'm a Changeling

I'm the air you breath
And food you eat
Friends your greet
Sullen street, wow
Hey, Change
See me change


I live uptown
I live downtown
I live all around

I had money, yeah, and I had none
I had money, yeah, and I had none
But I never been so broke

Well, Air you breath
Food you eat
Friends your greet
Sullen street, wow

Gotta gotta see me change
See me change

Gonna see me change
Gone down and change
Before you're wild
Shame, change
Shame, change, change
Change, change, change
Change, change, change

Change, change, change

Hell yes, Jim Morrison's voice sounds raw as hell, and the guitar solo is sick as hell. Ray's funky chord changes and the bass droning along with Densmore's drumming. Awesome.

Julian Browne

Wow this is SICK and RAW as HELL.

Lindy Primo replied: "EuphoricTincture here's the thing first I'm sure we don't know each other, and where I come from when someone says that someone sounds raw as hell and guitar solo sounds like shit thats not a compliment..."
Where the hell did I write that the "guitar solo sounds like shit"? What I clearly wrote was "the guitar solo is SICK as hell." Sick, in this case, meaning awesome. Now, you didn't tell me where you're from, but you did misinterpret my compliment towards this song. Also, when a song is raw, it's natural, unpretentious and beautiful in its form. Maybe you're older or younger than I am and from a different demographic (I'm in my early 30's), but don't tell me to "GFY" just because you can't understand a sentence.

So much energy in this song. Ray's keyboards and Jim's powerful voice, that's why I love the Doors.

Sometimes you have to go to grow and find yourself. This song has steadily became one one of my favorite Doors songs. It really defines my life after I dropped out of college in 13' until I chose to go back this year. I am have had my ups and downs and now I am a man ready to come of age and fully start my life.

When you both went back to school I hope you took a class in English grammar. Always the drama Queens!
