I was sitting naked in a holiday inn down in Orlando
And it was the morning of the last day of the year
I didn't know who I was and I thought I might've been Evan Dando
But if I was him than what the hell was I doing here
So I asked myself one simple question
What would I do with the rest of my life
If I knew I couldn't fail I guess I'd get the hell
Out of Orlando and find me a rich and beautiful wife

And be loved loved loved loved loved by everyone

But I ain't got no visa I said honey could you please uh help me
She said she was sorry but I think she was just disgusted
And I was kinda disgusted myself cause it had all come down to this
And I felt like a pervert but goddamn it gets lonely
When you're sitting in your hotel room naked as a jaybird
Down in Orlando in the middle of the night
So I called up an old friend to see how he was doing
But he sounded like a robot and it was like I barely knew him
So I said I had to go then I couldn't take it any longer
You know the desire to throw my naked body out the fifth floor of the Holiday Inn kept getting stronger
I tried to take a cold shower but I couldn't get my nerve up
I just sat in that hotel room and tried to cut my own hair
That was the worst idea that I had all day
But goddamn it gets lonely down in f.l.o.r.i.d.a.
Then I thought to myself just what the hell was a jaybird
And just what the hell does it look like an
