The window's dirty
The mattress stinks
This ain't no place to be a man
I ain't got no future
I ain't got no past
And I don't think I ever can

The floor is filthy
The walls are thin
The wind is howling in my face
The rats are peeling
I'm losing ground
Can't seem to join the human race


I'm living in a hell hole
Don't want to stay in this hell hole
Don't want to die in this hell hole
Girl, get me out of this hell hole

I rode a jetstream
I hit the top
I'm eating steak and lobster tails
The sauna's drafty, hoo
The pool's too hot
The kitchen stinks of boiling snails

The taxman's coming
The butler quit
This ain't no way to be a man
I'm going back
To where I started
I'm flashing back into my pan

Yeah, that's what I'm doing
And why not?

It's better in a hell hole
You know where you stand in a hell hole
Folks lend a hand in a hell hole
Girl get me back to my hell hole

    General CommentJust making fun of those rich snobby rock stars who seem to have a lot but still complain.

    General CommentThis song is genius! I know it's meant to be a spoof of 70s and 80s rock, but it tells a compelling narrative about how we're never happy with what we have. (Plus, it rocks.) I love when the speaker decides he needs to get BACK to his Hell Hole, where "folks lend a hand" and where you "know where you stand." Isn't that the truth!
