Lyrics[edit]

   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 thinking 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
   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 a 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"
   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 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 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
   "Relax" said the night man
   "We are programmed to receive
   You can check out any time you like
   But you can never leave!"
