Lyrics

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 thinkin' to myself :
"This could be heaven and this could be hell"
Then she lit up a candle
And she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor
I thought I heard them say

Welcome to the hotel california
Such a lovely place, (such a lovely place) such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the hotel california
Any time of year, (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
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"
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 place) such a lovely face
They're livin' it up at the hotel california
What a nice surprise, (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 stabbed 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
"Relax," said the night man, "we are programmed to receive
You can check out anytime you like... but you can never leave"

(Guitar solo until end)
