Song lyrics:

Available on the rare on air benefit cd.



Everybody got a room
Everybody got a room
Everybody got a room
In gods hotel.
Everybody got a room.
Well youll never see a sign hanging on the door
Sayin no vacancies anymore.


Everybody got wings
Everybody got wings
Everybody got wings
In gods hotel.
Everybody got wings.
Youll 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 gods hotel.
Everybody got a harp.
Youll 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 gods hotel.
Everybody got a cloud.
Youll 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 gods hotel.
Everybody hold a hand.
Youll never see a sign hung up above your door
no visitors allowed in rooms, by law!


Everybodys halo shines
Everybodys halo shines


Everybodys halo shines
In gods hotel.
Everybodys halo lookin fine.
You wont see a sign staring at you from the wall
Sayin lights out! no burnin the midnight oil!


Everybody got credit
Everybody got credit
Everybody got credit
In gods hotel.
Everybody got good credit.
Youll never see a sign stuck on the cash-box drawer
Sayin credit tommorow!! or want credit?!? haw, haw haw!!


Everybody is blind
Everybody is blind
Everybody is blind
In gods hotel.
Everybody is blind.
Youll 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 gods hotel.
Everybody is deaf.
Youll 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 gods hotel.
Everybody is dumb.
So youll 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 gods hotel.
Everybody got heaven.
So youll never see scribbled on the bathroom wall
let rosy get ya heaven, dial 686-844!
