Man, the first woman know she smells so nice And she looks so good I gotta zip up once or twice Well I've been down Up and up Up and down In 99, but I love my woman Like the sun goes up She's the sweetest little woman When she wakes up Come on, now right
Now you walk around And you thinking that you're so tough I see you walking around You think that you're so tough Well you got some thing momma, But it's not enough
I'm going home I'm going home and lay down I'm going home, baby I'm going home and lay down
Gonna switch on the television I'm gonna drown, yeah
Well it's a long time coming Long time coming, long time coming Long time coming, long time coming But when you find her baby You know you found something good
When you find somebody now, Don't leave it no good

Well at last the great moment when She Smells So Nice was unveiled to the world. Even genius has off days and this dirge was obviously one of them. Whateverthehell it was and whereeverthehell it came from thankfully it did not take up room on LAW as it would have stunk what was one of The Doors perfect albums out by its odious presence. Bloody awful
"That's the trouble with reality!.... it's taken far too seriously! I do hope God is good to me and Santa Claus to the children! Celebrate...this parties over...I'm going home!"
The music of this song is similar to Got my Mojo workin' by Muddy Waters. Perhaps, She smells so nice was Morrison’s improvised lyrics at the end of this song and they launched the recording too late to record the entire song. It is a shame because Jim’s improvisation is not good.
Listening to this song on the 40th re-release of L.A. Woman, I can't help but draw comparisons to the "Rock is Dead" jam session. That's all this 'new' song seems to be, the band jamming to find their groove which culminates in something of a performance of "Rock Me".
It's also interesting to note that Ray was quoted as saying "I didn't even know it existed... It was a surprise to all of us... I don't even remember recording it." This quote alone certifies that the jam was never supposed to be a full-blown 'song', and in my opinion, probably should have never been released as such. But still, it is nice to hear these lost little pieces.
