On a dark desert highway
Cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance
I saw a shimmering light
It grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
There she stood in the doorway
With the mission bell
I was thinking to myself
This could be heaven or this could be hell
Then she lit up a candle
She showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor,
Thought I heard them say

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place, such a lovely place
Such a lovely face
There's plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year, any time of year
You can find it here

Her man is definately twisted
She got the Mercedes Benz
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys she calls friends
And they dance in the courtyard
Sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget
So I called up the captain
"Please bring me my wine"
he said "We havn't had that spirit here
since nineteen sixty nine"
And still those voices are calling from far away
Wake you up in the midle of the night just to hear them say

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place, such a lovely place
Such a lovely face
Living it up at the Hotel California
What a nice suprise, when your alabis

Mirrors on the ceiling, and champaign on ice
She said "We are all just prisoners here, of our own device"
In their master's chambers
We gathered for the feast
Stabbing with their steely knives
Just can't kill the beast
Last thing i remember I was running for the door
I had to find the passage
Back to the place I was before
"Relax" said the nightman
"We are all programmed to receive
You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave"
