MAGIC CARPET RIDE ~ IF YOU KNOW ME • YOU KNOW OF HER

The stork is so old school. I'm arriving in a style that befits me as a Princess. Look out world. Here I come....
On a Magic Carpet Ride.

I like to dream yes, yes, right between my sound machine 
On a cloud of sound I drift in the night 
Any place it goes is right 
Goes far, flies near, to the stars away from here 

Well, you don't know what we can find 
Why don't you come with me little girl 
On a magic carpet ride 

You don't know what we can see 

Why don't you tell your dreams to me 

Fantasy will set you free 

Close your eyes girl 
Look inside girl 
Let the sound take you away 

Last night I held Aladdin's lamp 
And so I wished that I could stay 
Before the thing could answer me 
Well, someone came and took the lamp away 
I looked around, a lousy candle's all I found 

Well, you don't know what we can find 
Why don't you come with me little girl 
On a magic carpet ride 
Well, you don't know what we can see 
Why don't you tell your dreams to me 
Fantasy will set you free 
Close your eyes girl 
Look inside girl 
Let the sound take you away.

Steppenwolf ~ written by John Kay and bass player Rushton Moreve

The song was initially released in 1968 on the album The Second. It was the lead single from that album, peaking at #3 in the US, and becoming the band's second-biggest hit, surpassed only by "Born to Be Wild". 
The song is also considered the first modern rock video.
