Stan Freberg – Heartbreak Hotel lyrics

Well, since my baby left me,
Well I found a new place to dwell.
Well it's down at the end of lonely street
At Heartbreak Hotel.

Well I'll be, I'll be so lonely baby,
I'll be so lonely baby,
I'll be so lonely I could die.
('Could I have a little more echo on my voice. ')

Although it's always crowded, ('That's got it. ')
You still can find some room.
For broken hearted lovers
To cry there in the gloom.

And be so, and be so lonely baby,
And be so lonely baby,
They'll be so lonely they could die.

Now, the Bell hop's tears keep flowin',
The desk clerk's dressed in black.
Well it's been so long on lonely street
Will they, will they ever get back.
Well it's so, it's lonely baby,
Well it's so lonely baby,
{music breaks into Hawaiian War Chant}
It's so lonely they could die

Well now, if your baby leaves you,
And you got a tale to tell.
Just take a walk down lonely street
To Heartbreak Hotel.
Where you'll be... ('Ripped my jeans. ')
Where you'll be... ('Third pair today. ')
You'll be so lonely you could die

('That's good, that's good, that's close enough for jazz. ')

Although it's always crowded,
You still can find some room.
For broken hearted lovers
To cry there in the gloom. (gloom gloom gloom...)
It's so, it's so lonely baby, (baby baby baby baby...)
It's so lonely baby, ('That's too much echo. ')
They'll be so lonely they could die...
Tears keep flowing...
You'll be so lonely baby...
('That's too much! Turn it off! ')
