"God's Hotel" as written by and Paul Maurice/cave Kelly....
Everybody got a room
Everybody got a room
Everybody got a room
In God's Hotel
Everybody got a room
Well you'll never see a sign hanging on the door
Sayin 'No vacancies anymore'

Everybody got wings
Everybody got wings
Everybody got wings
In God's Hotel
Everybody got wings
You'll never see a sign hanging on the door
Sayin 'At no time may both feet leave the floor'

Everybody got a harp
Everybody got a harp
Everybody got a harp
In God's Hotel
Everybody got a harp
You'll never see a sign hanging on the wall
Sayin 'No harps allowed in the hotel at all'

Everybody got a cloud
Everybody got a cloud
Everybody got a cloud
In God's Hotel
Everybody got a cloud
You'll never see a sign hanging on the wall
Sayin 'Smoking and drinking will be thy downfall'

Everybody hold a hand
Everybody hold a hand
Everybody hold a hand
In God's Hotel
Everybody hold a hand
You'll never see a sign hung up above your door
'No visitors allowed in rooms, By law!'

Everybody's halo shines
Everybody's halo shines
Everybody's halo shines
In God's Hotel
Everybody's halo lookin' fine
You won't see a sign staring at you from the wall
Sayin 'Lights out! No burning the midnight oil!'

Everybody got credit
Everybody got credit
Everybody got credit
In God's Hotel
Everybody got good credit
You'll never see a sign stuck on the cash-box drawer
Sayin 'Credit tomorrow!' or 'Want credit? Haw, haw haw!'

Everybody is blind
Everybody is blind
Everybody is blind
In God's Hotel
Everybody is blind
You'll never see a sign on the front door
'No red skins No Blacks And that means you, baw!'

Everybody is deaf
Everybody is deaf
Everybody is deaf
In God's Hotel
Everybody is deaf
You'll never find a sign peeling off the bar-room wall
'Though shalt not blaspheme, cuss, holler or bawl'

Everybody is dumb
Everybody is dumb
Everybody is dumb
In God's Hotel
Everybody is dumb
So you'll never see on the visiting-room wall
'Though shalt not blaspheme, cuss, holler or bawl'

Everybody got Heaven
Everybody got Heaven
Everybody got Heaven
In God's Hotel
Everybody got Heaven
So you'll never see scribbled on the bathroom wall
'Let Rosy get ya Heaven, dial 686-8441'
