Cars Hiss By My Window

  • The cars hiss by my window
    Like the waves down on the beach
    The cars hiss by my window
    Like the waves down on the beach
    I got this girl beside me, but she's
    Out of reach

    Headlight through my window
    Shinin' on the wall
    Headlight through my window
    Shinin' on the wall
    Can't hear my baby
    Though I called and called

    Windows started tremblin'
    With a sonic boom
    Windows started tremblin'
    With a sonic boom, boom
    A cold girl'll kill you
    In a darkened room

    Ride on Writer/s: Jim Morrison, John Paul Densmore, Raymond Manzarek, Robert Krieger
    Publisher: Doors Music Company
