Hotel Majestic
Written by C. Collingwood


From the Fountains of Wayne album Traffic and Weather

Wake up boys, we're in the dump again
Can't get a taxi, it's bucketing rain
Heading downtown with nothing in my brain
Trying to catch my breath

Tired legume in a smoke-filled room
The high school guys are making noise outside
Walking the hall with my shoes untied 
Dying to catch my death 

And now it's Pekoe tea 
With a reflection of me
My only company
As far as I can see
We're doing this the hardest way 
Back at the Hotel Majestic
Same time every day
Hey hey

Watch what you wish for, maybe wish too much?
You'll wake up in Westmoreland doubling Dutch
Aware of the uproar but numb to the touch
Sifting through bad poetry

A sweet disorder never served me as well
As a tape recorder and a worn-out Dell 
Time to reorder, man I feel like hell
I wonder what's on TV

And now it's Pekoe tea 
With a reflection of me 
My only company 
As far as I can see 
We're doing this the hardest way 
Stuck in the Hotel Majestic
Six nights, seven days 

I wake up around two o'clock 
Scrape off my eyelids and' search for my socks 
Holy shit, I'm late 
Now it's knock knock knock 
Let's go

We're doing this the hardest way 
Doing this the hardest way 
Rocking the Hotel Majestic 
I hope you enjoyed your stay 
Hey hey
