HOTEL MULIMBINDI

From my CD "The Wizard of Auz"

(to the tune "Hotel California" by The Eagles)

 

On a dark lonesome highway, kangaroos everywhere

smell of burnt eucalyptus, rising up through the air

up ahead in the distance, a billboard with a light

"Fourex Bitter only seven k's" Jeez a beer'd be all right...

Then the speed sign said eighty, I saw the lights of a town

slowly drove down the main street, everything looked run-down

on the corner a hotel, and a light from the bar

flashing sign in the car park: "Wanna know where you are?"

 

Welcome to the town of Mullimbindi

such a lovely place - life at crawling pace

prices are higher here than even Sydney

stop for just two beers...stay for forty years...

 

The barman's smile was all twisted, he saw my Mercedes Benz

he said "We like you city boys, I know we'll soon be friends

"Try this" he said smiling "Tell me then how you feel

two of those and I promise friend this stuff is unreal"

I wondered if he was dealing, so I asked him the price

he mixed a funny coloured drink and then threw in lots of ice

then he lit up a large one and he passed it my way

there were voices through the public bar, thought I heard them say:

 

Welcome to the Hotel Mullimbindi

such a lovely place - leave that old rat race

plenty of room at the Hotel Mullimbindi

If you must stop here...don't you buy a beer...

 

So I drank it and staggered, he poured a bottle of wine

I told him that I'd better go, it was way after nine

But we danced on the table, and I swung on the ceiling fan

No-one even noticed, I was their kind of man

The last thing I remember I was spinning like a top

The next day gave my car away to the Salvo Army Op Shop

"Relax" said the barman "all your old days are gone

you're in Mullimbindi now, and you'll be here from now on"
