image for The Doors rerelease 'The Unknown Snowman' for their British fans as a tribute to the end of the cold weather spell there Jim Thawison

The Doors classic song 'The Unknown Snowman' from the album 'Waiting For The Sun and a Bit of Heat, Mate' was rereleased today, and here are the lyrics:

'Wait until the snow has all gone
And we're both a bit warmer
The unknown snowman

Breakfast where the weather is read
Television licence fees that get bled
Unknown Taffie with hair that's red
Snowflake strikes the dustman's head

And it's all over
For the unknown snowman
And it's all over
For the unknown snowman

[spoken: British Broadcasting Company, halt!
Present ... harms!
(drum roll, then sound of firing squad shooting the BBC Director General)]

Make a grave for the unknown snowman
It was Tom or it might have been Pam
The unknown snowman

Breakfast where the weather's read
Television fees that still get bled
Snowflake strikes the dustman's head

And it's all over
The snow is over
It's all over
The snow is over

It's all over
For the unknown snowman
The snow is over
All over

(Words by Jim Thawison; music by Ray Snowattak, Bobbie Gritter, John Driesmore; mixed by Norman Snowball; produced by Paul A. Snowchild;

'Waiting For The Sun and a Bit of Heat, Mate' by The Doors - CD available on Elektric Blanket Records:

'Hello I Throw Snow At You
Slush Street
Not To Touch The Earth
Winter Hasn't Gone
Wintertime Hate
The Unknown Snowman
Spanish Holiday In A Caravan
My Cold Child
We Could Be So Cold Together
Yes, The Shiver Grows
Five To One Odds On More Snow Will Appear Next Month'
