"Hotel Infinity"
all rights reserved
lyric ©️ 2000 Lawrence Mark Lesser

May be sung to the tune of
the Eagles’ “Hotel California” (by Don Felder, Don Henley, Glenn Frey),
the 6.5 minute #1 hit from the #1 album of the same title that came out in 1976

On a dark desert highway -- not much scenery
Except this long hotel stretchin’ far as I could see.
Neon sign in front read “No Vacancy,”
But it was late and I was tired, so I went inside to plea.

The clerk said, “No problem. Here’s what can be done--
We’ll move those in a room to the next higher one.
That will free up the first room and that’s where you can stay.”
I tried understanding this as I heard him say:

CHORUS: “Welcome to the HOTEL INFINITY --
Where every room is full (every room is full)
Yet there’s room for more.
Yeah, plenty of room at the HOTEL INFINITY --
Move ‘em down the floor (move em’ down the floor)
To make room for more.”

I’d just gotten settled, I’d finally unpacked
When I saw 8 more cars pull into the back.
I had to move to room 9; others moved up 8 rooms as well.
Never more will I confuse a Hilton with a Hilbert Hotel!

My mind got more twisted when I saw a bus without end
With an infinite number of riders coming up to check in.
“Relax,” said the nightman. “Here’s what we’ll do:
Move to the double of your room number:
that frees the odd-numbered rooms.” (Repeat Chorus)

Last thing I remember at the end of my stay--
It was time to pay the bill but I had no means to pay.
The man in 19 smiled, “Your bill is on me.
20 pays mine, and so on, so you get yours for free!”
