"Hotel California" as written by and Don Henley Don Felder....
She works all day at the Burger King
Gettin' greasy for the dollars
Promoted to fries
But there's tears in her eyes
It's not the grease or the pickles that upset her

California
Hotel California
California
Hotel California
California
Hotel California

You can't stab the beast

A look of disgust on her pimple-marked face
No amount of mayonnaise can cover
She frowns at the kill, charbroilling on the grill
Singin
"Death for no reason, death for no reason is murder"

California
Hotel California
California
Hotel California
California
Hotel California

She can't stand the beast
She stabs him with her steely knife
But she just can't kill the beast

California...

    General CommentThis song is random and I feel it doesn't have a particular meaning. But I like the band because their name is a reference to Star Wars. XD

    General CommentThey're making fun of the original Eagles song.

    The Eagles version of Hotel California was a metaphor for rich people and how they get caught up in a luxurious lifestyle and apparently being rich is a difficult thing and we should feel sorry for rich people.

    This is Nerf Herders answer to that message of the Eagles song. They're responding to that song in a way. Saying that being rich is a ridiculous thing to try and get sympathy for. They contrast the Eagles message of rich people having it hard to an example of real hardship - being poor and having to work a menial job to survive like a lot of people have to do.
