ഹോട്ടല്‍ കേരള-ഫോണിയ



Lyrics


On the road to Trivandrum,
Coconut oil in my hair

Warm smell of avial,
Rising up through the air

Up ahead in the distance,
I saw a bright pink tube-light

My tummy rumbled, I felt weak and thin,
I had to stop for a bite

There he stood in the doorway,
Flicked his mundu in style

And I was thinking to myself,
I don’t like the look of his sinister smile

Then he lit up a petromax,
Muttering “No power today”

More Mallus down the corridor,
I thought I heard them say


Welcome to the Hotel Kerala-fonia,
Such a lousy place,

Such a lousy place (background),
Such a sad disgrace,

Plenty of bugs at the Hotel Kerala-fonia,
Any time of year

Any time of year (background),
It’s infested here

It’s infested here


His finger’s stuck up his nostril,
He’s got a big, thick mustache

He makes an ugly, ugly noise,
But that’s just his laugh

Buxom girls clad in pavada,
Eating banana chips

Some roll their eyes, and
Some roll their hips

I said to the manager,
My room’s full of mice

He said,
Don’t worry, saar,I sending you
meen karri, brandy and ice

And still those voices were crying from far away,
Wake you up in the middle of the night

Just to hear them pray


Save us from the Hotel Kerala-fonia,
Such a lousy place,

Such a lousy place (background),
Such a sad disgrace

Trying to live at the Hotel Kerala-fonia,
It is no surprise

It is no surprise (background),
That it swarms with flies


The blind man was pouring,
Stale sambar on rice

And he said,
We are all just actors here

In Silk Smitha-disguise,
And in the dining chamber

We gathered for the feast,
We stab it with our steely knives

But we just can’t cut that beef,
Last thing I remember

I was writhing on the floor,
That cockroach in my appam-stew was the culprit,

I am sure,
Relax, said the watchman

This enema will make you well,
And his friends laughed as they held me down

God’s Own Country? Oh, Hell!

കണ്ണാ, ഞാൻ ഇതു കേട്ടൂ കുറേ ചിരിച്ചൂ...നാട്ടിൻ പുറത്തെ ഒരു സാദാ “ഹോട്ടൽ” ന്റെ തനതായ വർണ്ണന...
ആരുടേ ശബ്ദമാ മോനെ..? നന്നായിട്ടൂണ്ട്,

പലവരികളിലും ലിറിക്സും പാട്ടുമായി വ്യത്യാസം ഉണ്ട്
എന്തായാലും ഹോട്ടൽ കേരള ഫോണിയ കലക്കി..

വരികളും പാട്ടുമായി അല്പസ്വല്പ വിത്യാസം ഉണ്ടെങ്കിലും നന്നായി ചിരിപ്പിച്ചു .നന്ദു പറഞ്ഞതുപോലെ ഇതൊരു സാദ ഹോട്ടല്‍ അല്ല അല്ലേ ..സ്റ്റാര്‍ ഹോട്ടല്‍ ആണെന്നു തോന്നുന്നു ? ഞാന്‍ ഇതിങ്ങേടുക്കുന്നു .ഇതുപോലുള്ള സംഭവങ്ങള്‍ ഇനിയും എഴുതണം
ബെസ്റ്റ് കണ്ണ ബെസ്റ്റ് :)
