Love Street Lyrics

She lives on Love Street
Lingers long on Love Street
She has a house and garden
I would like to see what happens

She has robes and she has monkeys
Lazy diamond studded flunkies
She has wisdom and knows what to do
She has me and she has...

    Okay I could be TOTALLY wrong on this...but Love Street was just a silly name he was using for where Pam Courson lived...and "she" is Pam...and the junkies/flunkies/monkies are the men she always had around her... remember they had a pretty open relationship in the beginning (when he wrote the song)

    She has robes and she has monkeys
    (monkeys as in men like Tom Baker and a couple of other men that she can con into doing anything she wants...sex, drugs...whatever)

    Lazy diamond studded flunkies
    (lazy diamond studded flunkie could be the guy that she was still seeing..the Count?? hence the lazy, because he didn't do anything to deserve the money or the drugs, and he's diamond studded b/c he's got the money)

    She has wisdom and knows what to do
    She has me and she has you
    (she knows exactly what she's doing and she's got us both under her spell...)

    again, I could be TOTALLY off, but I just thought it was an interesting little interpretation of it??

    i see it as this was the first time JIM really felt a good home life, feeling extremely content and comfortable, totally in love with life in this home on what he refered to as Lovestreet.

    well capitalist im sorry but you are incorrect in this case. jim lived in a green house in la with pam. they lived across the street from a store which is where theres a store where the creatures meet" line comes from. he has the lyrics 'she has robes and she has monkies' but original lyrics were 'she had junkies' because she always had her heroin dealers around jim and at their house. pam, like morosson, had many lovers and they were never together. later on she started refering herself as mrs morisson.

    Ir's about Pam and the junkies she always had around. She was a heroin junkie. Hint Monkeys and Flunkies. And the person was right about him watching the hippies walk by. It was Love street.

    The first anonymous had a good theory but I'm a little disappointed that mine was completely dismissed w/o comment. Again, anonymous (if that is your real name) okay job I guess. I'm just not convinced jm had as mundane (and lame) a focus as your interpretation seems to suggest. The guy had hundreds if not thousands of chicks for free. Not sure he was about to write a song about one night/whore at the red-light district. What about the whole god-man-satan concept? Not even conceivable to one as noble and uncowardly as a poster idedntified (truthfully?) as "anonymous"?

    Come on: try again.

    Or else get the hell outa here you doofus.

    [mods: just trying to jump-start the guy's brain here; and what's w/allowing "anonymous" posters? They are most often pedophiles, or sympaticos therewith.] ;)

    This song is about a street in Cali where Jim Morrison and his girlfriend Pam used to lay back and watch the hippies pass by.

    The song love street is about a prostitute that lives (works in the red-light district). “Lingers long on Love Street” means that she shows off her goods on the street. The house is probably a brothel and the garden would be the sidewalk in front of it where she gets her clients. ”I would like to see what happens” means that he likes this girl and is interested in her services. She has different attires (robes) and every thing to satisfy any fetishism (monkeys). I’m not sure about the next part but “Lazy diamond studded flunkies” but flunkies are manservant, this could mean that she is a veteran or even the Madame and the flunkies are her apprentices. “She has wisdom and knows what to do” this supports the idea that she has experience in the field. In the next part “She has me” means that he is now and client and “you” portrays the other clients. I guess the “store” = brothel, “Summer Sunday and a year” means that’s its open for business all year round, “I guess I like it fine, so far” is when she asks him if he is happy with the services she is providing…
