heartbreak hotel

the original, and famous song "Halfway Hotel", was done by the very famousVoyager band, towards the end of their career... The chorus lyrics are... Why dont we call into the Halfway Hotel/I long for service at the ring of a bell/And we could sleep in late (sleep in late)/Yeah, your mummy and your Daddy can wait/And if we dont get home again (home again)/Well you know that you'll be welcome to stay (welcome to stay)/ And the people that you thought so swell are sipping back their Moselles, And life is so hard on a credit card... Its almost normal... At the Halfway Hotel... X :-)

Heartbreak hotel alt.

I remember a song from the early 80's (I think).. can't remember the name or the band (1 hit wonder probably)but do remember some lyrics..the chorus goes something like this:

"Why don't we put in at heartbreak hotel, I long for service at the ring of a bell, we could sleep in late, (sleep in late), your mommy and daddy can wait. (daddy can wait)"

other lyrics are.."Hey mama it's a long long way, to the borderline home where the butterflies play all day"

I know it sounds a bit naff but was a catchy tune, can't find it in any search i've done...any ideas

Regards, Nev

You were correct in thinking it was a one hit wonder and you got the lyrics quite close, but we think the line is "Why don't we put in at the halfway hotel"

The song is "Halfway Hotel" by Voyager and was in the following charts:

"Springbok 12 - Aug 1979 (5 weeks), Sweden (alt) 18 - Jul 1979 (2 weeks), UK 33 - May 1979 (8 weeks), RIANZ 34 - Nov 1979 (5 weeks)"
