about

From 2010: Stayed at the comfort inn in Erie PA and across the street was the Thunderbird Motel -- sounded like a song to me. A block down the road is the Flamingo Inn -- maybe a song in the future. Could get a decent 2nd verse so I made it a duet.

lyrics

Thunderbird Motel Duet
(c) Emmrich 2011

(Male verses)
sitting in the thunderbird motel
parking lot's half full
and my life’s half empty
sheets didn't get changed today
they don't hand out mints or shampoo bottles
there ain't no plans to re-model

but they'll take your cash with no id
you can stay if you can pay,
it's a good place
to get out of the world's way

(male only chorus)
and i need a place to go when i want out
out of this hole I’m in
i need a place where no one's gonna tell
and i found it here at the thunderbird motel

(Female Verse)
I work down at sam’s silver moon cafe
6am coffee to the working man’s table
breakfast and lunch when I am able
I stand and wait on customers all day
tips on the counter, crumbs on the floor
I’ll stay here ‘til I can’t stand it any more

(female only chorus)
... and I found him here at the Thunderbird Motel

(Bridge)
so don't look for us in no fancy part of town
don't look for us when the sun’s going down
we’ll be were you can’t find us
down at the thunderbird motel

(chorus again -- together)
and we need a place to go when we want out
out of this hole we’re in
we need a place where no one's gonna tell
and we found it here at the thunderbird motel
and we found it here at the thunderbird motel
