Don't you know I need a place to stay
It's only fifteen bucks a day
I didn't wanna end up here
But now I guess I need to stay

River red, runs like lead
And the smell of kerosene in my head
Stuck in here in this shithole
Reading foreign magazines instead

But señor, I only have ten dollars
Can't you give me a room for the night?
We argue about currency and then
He says I can stay for the night

In this Panama City motel
I am out on the freeway again

A woman approaches in Barcelona
Walking down the Diagonolia
Spaghetti concrete overpasses
I keep grasping for something familiar

But señor, I only have ten dollars
Can't you give me a room for the night?
We argue about currency and then
He says I can stay for the night

In this Panama City motel
I am out on the freeway again
In this Panama City motel
I am out on the freeway again
No no

Well don't you know (Don't you know)
Well don't you know (Don't you know)
Well don't you know I need a place to stay

Don't you know I need a place
Don't you know I need a place
Don't you know I need a place to stay
