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 shimering 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

Then she lit up a candle

There were voices down the corridor

I thought I heard them say:

Plenty of room at the Hotel California,

Sweet summer sweat

Some dance to remember

Some dance to forget

So I called up the captain

And still those voices are calling from

Far away

Wake you up in the middle of the night

Just to hear them say:

Pink champagne on ice, and she said

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
