Hotel California

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hairWarm smell of colitas, rising up through the airUp ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering lightMy head grew heavy and my sight grew dimI had to stop for the nightThere she stood in the doorwayI heard the mission bellAnd I was thinking to myself“This could be heaven or this could be hell”Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the wayThere were voices down the corridorI thought I heard them sayWelcome to the Hotel CaliforniaSuch a lovely placeSuch a lovely facePlenty of room at the Hotel CaliforniaAny time the year, you can find it hereHer mind’s Tiffany-twisted, she got a Mercedes BenzShe got a lot of pretty, pretty boys that she calls friendsHow they danced in the courtyard,sweet summer sweatSome dance to remember, some dance to forgetSo I called up the captain“Please bring me my wine”He said, “We haven’t had that spirit here sincenineteen sixty nine”And still those voices are calling from far awayWake you up in the middle of the nightJust to hear them sayWelcome to the Hotel CaliforniaSuch a lovely placeSuch a lovely faceThey’re livin’ it up at the Hotel CaliforniaWhat a nice surprise, bring your alibisMirrors on the ceilingThe pink champagne on iceAnd she said “we are all just prisoners here,of our own device”And in the master’s chambersThey gathered for the feastThey stabbed it with their steely knivesBut they just can’t kill the beastLast thing I rememberI was running for the doorI had to find the passage backTo the place I was before“Relax”, said the night manWe are programmed to receiveYou can checkout any time you likeBut you can never leave
