“The WASP (Texas Radio and the Big Beat)“ is a 1971 song by The Doors, which appears on their final album with frontman Jim Morrison, L.A. Woman. The music was written by Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore. The spoken word lyrics, written by Morrison, come from a poem he wrote in 1968, three years before the music was written. These lyrics were published in a Doors souvenir book. It could be said that the “WASP” part of the title originated from the phrase “White Anglo-Saxon Protestant.“ It has gained considerable fame over the years and has been featured on several Doors compilation CDs.
