FCS Daily Music Video – ‘Crawling King Snake’ (studio rehearsal) The Doors

The Doors were an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1965, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger, and drummer John Densmore. They were among the most controversial and influential rock acts of the 1960s, partly due to Morrison’s lyrics and voice, along with his erratic  stage persona. 

The band took its name from the title of Aldous Huxley‘s book The Doors of Perception.

Lyrics below

“Crawling King Snake”

Well, I’m the Crawlin’ King Snake
And I rule my den
I’m the Crawlin’ King Snake
And I rule my den
Yeah, don’t mess ’round with my mate
Gonna use her for myself

Caught me crawlin’, baby, window
Grass is very high
Keep on crawlin’ ’til the day I die
Crawlin’ King Snake
And I rule my den
You better give me what I want
Gonna crawl no more

Caught me crawlin’, baby
Crawlin’ ’round your door
Seein’ everything I want
I’m gonna crawl on your floor
Let’s crawl
And I rule my den
C’mon, give me what I want
I’m not going to crawl no more

C’mon crawl
C’mon crawl
Get on out there on your hands and knees, baby
Crawl all over me
Just like the spider on the wall
Ooh, we gon’ crawl, one more

Well, I’m the Crawlin’ King Snake
And I rule my den
Call me the Crawlin’ King Snake
And I rule my den
Yeah, don’t mess ’round with my mate
Gonna use her for myself
