Lyrics:

Down around the No Hotel,...look for me they know me well.
Travílers come and travílers go,...down around the Notel No.
If you choose the No Hotel,...Be prepared to run pell mel,
Be another burnt out shell. You checked in the No Hotel.

Down around the No Hotel,...water there donít flow so well.
Problems come ní problems go,...freezing shower say hello.
If you choose the No Hotel,...The bellhop never rings the bell,
Why thereís another neíer do well, just checked in the No Hotel.

Down around the No Hotel,...look for me the human shell.
Strangers moving to and fro,...all around the Hotel No.
When dining at the No Hotel,...Thereís caterers who cater not,
And waiters who donít wait a lot. Youíve checked in the No Hotel.

Living at the No Hotel,...just another neíer do well,
Seasons ebb and seasons flo,...down around the Hotel Ho.
Snug in your No Hotel room,...See the little critters fly
Above the bed sheets telling lies. Youíve checked in the No Hotel.

Down around the No Hotel,... look for me they know me well.
Trav'lers come and trav'lers go...Itís the only world they know.
If you choose the No Hotel,... The bellhop never rings the bell,
Now heís another burnt out shell. Youíve checked in the No Hotel
