Song - The Doors Hello, I Love You

1. Listen to the song and order the song lines.

 

and her legs are long
at her feet
Blind
Do you hope
Do you hope
Do you think
down the street
Hello, I love you
Hello, I love you
Her arms are wicked
her head so high
in the sky
Let me jump in your game
Like a dog that begs for something sweet
Like a statue
my brain screams out this song
She holds
She´s walking
Sidewalk crouches
to every eye she meets.
to make her see, you fool?
to make the queen of the angels sigh?
to pluck this dusty jewel?
When she moves
Won´t you tell me your name?
you´ll be they..
