Lookin' Out My Back Door Lyrics

Just got home from Illinois,
Lock the front door, oh, boy!
Got to sit down,
Take a rest on the porch.
Imagination sets in,
Pretty soon I'm singin'.
Doo, doo, doo,
Lookin' out my back door.

There's a giant doing cartwheels,
A statue wearin' high heels.
Look at all the happy
Creatures dancing on the lawn.
A Dinosaur Victrola
List'ning to Buck Owens.
Doo, doo, doo,
Lookin' out my back door.

Tambourines and elephants
Are playing in the band.
Won't you take a ride
On the flyin' spoon?
Doo, doo-doo.
Wond'rous apparition
Provided by magician.
Doo, doo, doo,
Lookin' out my back door.

Tambourines and elephants
Are playing in the band.
Won't you take a ride
On the flyin' spoon?
Doo, doo-doo.
Bother me tomorrow,
Today I'll buy no sorrows.
Doo, doo, doo,
Lookin' out my back door.

Forward troubles Illinois,
Lock the front door, oh, boy!
Look at all the happy
Creatures dancing on the lawn.
Bother me tomorrow,
Today I'll buy no sorrows.
Doo, doo, doo,
Lookin' out my back door.

Lock the door, roll a Doobie; herb takes effect. Mind and imagination runs casually wild, mellow. Troubles and worries dissapate into the hazy smoke but slowly..slowly the smoke clears, the herb fades, fast forward to real life and beyond the locked front door the troubles are still there..waiting.
