She's got her ear to the walls and she's tappin' the calls
If you've got a secret boy, forget about it, 'cause she's a

Hotel Detective
My little
Hotel Detective
Yeah she's a
Hotel Detective
Why don't you check her out

Well the bellhop is funky
The dumbwaiter's a monkey
If there's a knock at the door, boy, forget about it, 'cause she's a

Hotel Detective
My little
Hotel Detective
Yeah
Hotel Detective
Cone on and check her out

She says she likes my face
She says she owns the place
Forget about it, 'cause she's a

Hotel Detective
My little
Hotel Detective
Come on her
Hotel Detective
Why don't you check her out

Hotel Detective
Come on and swing with me
Hotel Detective
From the top of a tree
Hotel Detective
And make me feel like a bee
Hotel Detective
That's where I want to know you

    General CommentI like this song quite a bit.
    Such awesome/hilarious/cool disco-revival.
    Love the falsetto.

    It is crazy rare though, and it is really hard to find in the shadow of (She Was A) Hotel Detective.
    To help anyone out, this is off of the '94 EP "Back to Skull", and you can only really find it for download in a podcast on one of the fan-run websites.
