When the lights are low you know I'm going to go to my hotel chambermaid

Going to shut the bellboy out tonight

Verse
When the world is dead I'm going to make the bed with that hotel chambermaid
She'll bring the coffee in the morning with a smile
She don't ask me where I come from
I crept in and I soon be done
I just want to hide here for a while

Room service can you help me I want a hotel chambermaid
I didn't pay my bill but I had my fill all right
While the river's rolling outside the window

While the river's rolling outside the window
Going to see her going to get love
Going to shut the bellboy out tonight (3 times)
