Well I don't know what day it is
And I'm afraid to say I'm not sure where I am
And these hotel rooms and greasy spoons
Have over stayed their welcome once again
And the folks down in the hotel lounge
Sit far apart and order rounds all night
And I'd rather be up on the moon,
'Cause at least from there I'd have you in my sight
I'm sure its indisputable, I hear Toledo's beautiful
But not here from this hotel lobby phone
So no offence Toledo, but I'm going home

And if I was there I'd pick you up
And take you out and head down to the crown
We’d trip the light fandango
Tie a yellow ribbon around this town
And I'd sing for you karaoke
So go on girl and pick your favourite song
And the Japanese-Jimmy-Deans-Rock-a-Billy
Boyfriends sing along

I'm sure its indisputable, I hear Toledo's beautiful
But not here from this hotel lobby phone
So no offence Toledo, but I'm going home

And your voice is in my heart, and its pounding like the sea
It sings at night alone in a perfect melody
But the voices in my head are still fighting off at sea
So come down from that widow's walk
And lay your heavy heart on me

I'm sure its indisputable, they say Toledo's beautiful
And I'm here at the perfect time of year
But no offence Toledo, but I'm outta here

    General Comment"But not here from this hotel lobby phone"

    It sounds like he's waiting for someone. He's in this place, and even though it's a great place to be, he can't enjoy it because he's depending on this person to come for him, but she won't, so he's leaving.
