Hotel California      Eagles

(Don Felder/Glenn Frey/Don Henley)



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 dimmer

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 face)

Plenty of room at the Hotel California

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 that she calls friends

How they dance in the courtyard

Sweet summer sweats

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(註2) here since nineteen sixty nine'

And still those voices are calling from far away

Wake you up in the middles of the night

Just to hear them say---



Welcome to the Hotel California

Such a lovely place (such a lovely face)

They living it up at the Hotel California

What a nice surprise, bring you 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'



加州旅館      老鷹合唱團





黑暗的沙漠高速公路上

冷風吹亂了我的髮

空氣中飄來科麗塔(註1)溫暖的氣味

望向遠方

我看到閃爍的燈光

我的頭越來越昏沈,視線越來越模糊

我得停下來過夜



她就站在門邊

我聽到了教堂的鐘聲傳來

我心裡想

這兒可能是天堂也可能是地獄

然後,她點燃蠟燭為我帶路

走廊傳來許多聲音

我想它們是說--------



歡迎蒞臨加州旅館

多麼美麗的地方(接待人員和藹親切)

旅館內有充足的房間

無論哪一天,隨時恭迎大駕



她總是追求名牌時尚

她擁有賓士轎車

還有很多她稱之為朋友的俊美男孩

他們在庭院裡跳著舞

汗水淋漓

有人跳舞是為了回憶

有人是為了遺忘

於是我請領班過來

"幫我端杯酒來"

但他說"我們這兒從1969年起就不再供應烈酒了"

那些聲音依然在遠方召喚

將你從午夜時分喚醒

只聽見它們說著--------



歡迎蒞臨加州旅館

多麼美麗的地方(接待人員和藹親切)

人們都在加州旅館裡尋歡作樂

多麼美麗的驚喜,是你逃避的藉口



天花板上的鏡子

冰鎮的粉紅色香檳

她說"我們都是自投羅網的囚犯"

在主人的房裡

所有客人齊赴盛宴

他們用小鋼刀戳刺獵物

卻無法宰殺那隻野獸



我最後記得的是:

我奪門而出

我得回到未完的旅程

回到從前的地方

" 別緊張",值夜者說

" 我們已接獲指示

您隨時都可以買單

但您休想離開!"
