Hotel Kerala-Fonia By the Mallu Eagles

A tribute to the ORIGINAL EAGLES !

Sing to the tune …

On the road to Trivandrum
Coconut oil in my hair
Warm smell of avial
Rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance
I saw a bright pink tube-light
My tummy rumbled, I felt weak and thin
I had to stop for a bite
There he stood in the doorway
Flicked his mundu in style
And I was thinking to myself
I don’t like the look of his sinister smile
Then he lit up a petromax
Muttering “No power today”
More Mallus down the corridor
I thought I heard them say

Welcome to the Hotel Kerala-fonia
Such a lousy place,
Such a lousy place (background)
Such a sad disgrace,
Plenty of bugs at the Hotel Kerala-fonia
Any time of year
Any time of year (background)
It’s infested here
It’s infested here

His finger’s stuck up his nostril
He’s got a big, thick mustache
He makes an ugly, ugly noise
But that’s just his laugh
Buxom girls clad in pavada
Eating banana chips
Some roll their eyes, and
Some roll their hips
I said to the manager
My room’s full of mice
He said,
Don’t worry, saar, I sending you
meen karri, brandy and ice
And still those voices were crying from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them pray

Save us from the Hotel Kerala-fonia
Such a lousy place,
Such a lousy place (background)
Such a sad disgrace
Trying to live at the Hotel Kerala-fonia
It is no surprise
It is no surprise (background)
That it swarms with flies

The blind man was pouring
Stale sambar on rice
And he said
We are all just actors here
In Silk Smitha-disguise
And in the dining chamber
We gathered for the feast
We stab it with our steely knives
But we just can’t cut that beef
Last thing I remember
I was writhing on the floor
That cockroach in my appam-stew was the culprit,
I am sure
Relax, said the watchman
This enema will make you well
And his friends laughed as they held me down
God’s Own Country? Oh, Hell!

Thang you …

   Do Pink Floyds ever get tired of playing? They perform all the time since years. When I work, when I travel, when I eat, I brush, I…In my ears. They are more than 1 GB with me.  Recently friend of mine related PFs with my philosophy, for which I never had an answer. 

“I do not understand Atheism, if you say there is no god  … Then who is David Gilmore??” 

One more, I read..,  

          The three remaining PF members get in a car wreck and all three die. They’re standing in front of the pearly gates to heaven when St. Peter comes up and says “Oh hi guys, we’ve been expecting you! You’re really going to love it here; Heaven is a great place for musicians. We even have our own band and you guys are welcome to join. We’ve got Elvis Presley singing, Jimmie Hendrix is playing guitar, Frank Sinatra is on piano and Roger Waters is writing lyrics!” 

Dave replies “Roger’s here? When did he die?” 

St. Peter leans over and whispers in his ear “It’s really just God, but he thinks he’s Roger Waters!”
