Five To One

Five To One

WRITING CREDITS:
The Doors (John Densmore, Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek, and Jim Morrison)

  
Yeah, c'mon. Love my girl.
She lookin' good. C'mon. One more
 
Five to one, baby; one in five.
No one here gets out alive.
Now, you get yours, baby. I'll get mine.
Gonna make it, baby, if we try.
 
The old get old and the young get stronger.
May take a week and it may take longer.
They got the guns, but we got the numbers.
Gonna win, yeah, we're takin' over.
 
Come on!
Yeah!
 
Your ballroom days are over, baby. Night is drawing near.
Shadows of the evening crawl across the years.
You walk across the floor with a flower in your hand
trying to tell me no one understands.
 
Trade in your hours for a handful dimes.
Gonna' make it, baby, in our prime.
Come together one more time.
Get together one more time.
 
Get together one more time.
Get together, uhuh.
Get together one more time!
Get together one more time!
Get together one more time.
Get together one more time.
Get together, gotta, get together.
 
Ohhhhhhhh!
 
Hey, c'mon, honey, you won't have along wait for me, baby.
I'll be there in just a little while.
You see, I gotta go out in this car with these people and . . .
Get together one more time.
 
Get together one more time.
Get together, got to—
Get together, got to—
Get together, got to—
Take you up in my room and . . .
Hah-hah-hah-hah-hah.
Love my girl.
She lookin' good, lookin' real good.
Love ya, c'mon.
