Song: Hotel Yorba

We're planning on blasting this in the car all the way to Montauk on Saturday. Just swap out Hotel "Yorba" with "Sole East" and press repeat. We're not quite sure what time we'll make it there, but we somehow always do. But instead of grabbing that umbrella, we'd suggest a pair of wayfarers.

LYRICS:

I was watching with one eye on the other side I had fifteen people telling me to move I got moving on my mind I found shelter In some thoughts turning wheels around I said 39 times that I love you to the beauty I had found

Well its 1 2 3 4 take the elevator at the hotel yorba I'll be glad to see you later all they got inside is vacancy

I been thinking of a little place down by the lake they got a dirty little road leading up to the house I wonder how long it will take till we're alone sitting on the front porch of that home stomping our feet on the wooden boards never gonna worry about locking the door

Well its 1 2 3 4 take the elevator at the hotel yorba I'll be glad to see you later all they got inside is vacancy

You'll prob'ly say I'm silly think childish thoughts like these but I'm so tired of acting tough and i'm gonna do as i please Let's get married in a big cathedral by a priest coz if i'm the man you love the most you can say i do at least

And its 4 5 6 7 grab your umbrella grab hold of me cause I'm your favorite fella all they got inside is vacancy
