The Lyrics

This parodied M2M song is a special tribute to the lead singer of The Doors, named Jim Morrison.
Well I wonder could it be
When a lead singer of The Doors died tragically in Paris, France
Call him lizard king of 1967
He took lot of cocaine and drugs, or heart attack

Did we lose our hero for tragic death
And Jim drank too much alcohol
I know he spent on Whiskey Bar

Well Jim so much I need to say
Been dead since the day
The day Jim Morrison died
So sad and tragic
For all fans of The Doors
Been dead since the day
The day Jim Morrison died

Oh whoa .... yeah... oh...ooh...

I remember date and year
Saturday of July third of the year nineteen-seventy-one
In the bathroom with the blood
Police found the lead singer dead
There were tears on our faces

And the fans were saddened by the tragic death
Something also happened to Hendrix
As well as Janis Joplin and Cobain

Well The Doors so much I need to say
Been dead since the day
The day Jim Morrison died
So sad but tragic
For us there's only you
Been dead since the day
The day Jim Morrison died
The day Jim Morrison died
The day Jim Morrison died

Oh whoa .... yeah oh

Did they came out in 1967 as The Doors
The Doors sang "Light My Fire"
On Ed Sullivan Show in that year

Well The Doors so much I need to say
Been dead since the day
The day Jim Morrison died
So sad but tragic
For us there's only you
Been dead since the day
The day Jim Morrison died

Jim Morrison was buried in a cemetery in Paris
What's a cemetery
The day Jim Morrison died
He was laid to rest in Pere-Lachaise in Paris, France
Been dead since the day
The day Jim Morrison died

The day Jim Morrison died
The day Jim Morrison died
oh whoa .. yeah oh
RIP Jim Morrison, 1943-1971
