There’s an old hotel with a faded sign
South of town on the county line
It’s been there a hundred years or so
And it seems to shine with a ghostly glow
That comes from the graveyard down the way
And when the haunts come out to play
They rattle their bones and raise some hell
When the moon is full at the Haunts Hotel

Sometimes strangers passing by
Rent a room to spend the night
But those strangers won’t last long
The price is right but it feels all wrong
The paint is faded the air is stale
The clientel is ghostly pale
But oh the tales they could tell
About the goings-on at the Haunts Hotel

The desk-clerk opens up the door a crack
Points a bony finger out to the back
Theres a bar they call the Baying Hound
Where the haunts all hang around
Strangers shake thr heads&wonder if theyre seeing right
While the haunts start to slip back outa sight
They coulda had a nice time & they never would regret it
Now they’ll spend a lifetime trying to forget it

So if you find yourself going out around the bend
And you wanta have a little bit of fun again
And you’re feeling like yr never gonna break her spell
Take my advice take her down to the Haunts Hotel
Take a chance where you’ve never ever been before
That’s the only way you’ll ever even up the score
You can get it any way that you want it
With the help of someone who can haunt it
Check your troubles in at the door
Join the ghosts on the hardwood floor
Have the time of your life and you’ll discover
She’ll be yours forever, she never will recover..
At the Haunts Hotel
