Hotel California

       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

  My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim

  I had to stop for the night

  There she stood in the doorway;

  I heard the mission bell

  And I was speaking to myself,

  'This could be Heaven or this could be Hell'

  Then she lit up a candle and 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 face

  Plenty of rooms at the Hotel California

  Any time of year, you can find it here

  Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes-Benz

  She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends

  How 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'

  And he said, 'We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty        -nine'

  And still those voices are calling from far away,

  Wake you up in the middle of the night

  Just to hear them say...

  Welcome to the Hotel California

  Such a lovely place

  Such a lovely face

  They livin' it up at the Hotel California

  What a nice surprise, bring your alibis

  Mirrors on the ceiling,

  The pink champagne on ice

  And she said 'We are all just prisoners here, of our own device'

  And in the master's chambers,

  They gathered for the feast

  They stab it with their steely knives,

  But they 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
