Hotel Keralafonia Songs Video And Lyrics

Hotel Keralafornia

They have a unique classical music in South India. Its called 'Karnatic'. But people from South India, especially Keralites, affectionately called 'Mallus', have a particular liking for parody songs. Now they even have their own version of Hotel California by Eagles. The local version is called 'Hotel Keralafornia' by Yeagles! The music and vocals are not as haunting as the original, and leaves much to be desired, but it sure is funny. I am know that my friends from the west will have a tough time understanding the words. Don't worry, I have the lyrics too, especially for you.

But First, here is another video on similar veins. This video was created by two Indian students in the US called "MC Vikram and Ludakrishna". Their song "Curry and rice girl" is still popular on YouTube. This one also is quite funny.

Scroll down for Hotel Keralafornia, Kerlafonia, Keralafonia, Kerlafornia - however you wish to spell it.

Curry and rice girl video by MC Vikram and Ludakrishna

Welcome To The Hotel Keralafornia

Actually this is no video at all! Someone converted the song into a video and uploaded it to YouTube. You can still listen to it. Scroll down for the lyrics. It really is funny. I have given the meanings of the words that you may not understand to the right.

Trivandrum - Capital of Kerala State

avial - A tasty Kerala vegetarian dish

mundu - Dhoti worn by men, can be called the national dress of Kerala

petromax - Hurricane lamp

Mallus - Keralites are affectionately called so

pavada - Skirt worn by girls

saar - Sir

meen karri- Fish Curry

sambar - A South Indian vegetarian curry

Silk Smitha - A south Indian actress known for her spicy roles

appam-stew - A breakfast of mallus

Kerala - Gods Own Country, so says the tourism department here!

Hotel Keralafonia 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!


I hope you have enjoyed it, if not disgusted with it!

Best Regards
