Hotel Dunkin’ Donuts

On a dark crowded strip mall, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of Coconut Kreme, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a pink and orange light
My gut grew hungry, and my mouth watered, I had to stop for a bite
There she stood at the counter, I heard the drive-thru bell
And I was thinking to myself, this could be Krispy Kreme or this could be Hell
Then she picked up a powdered, and she showed me the way
There were voices from the back room, I thought I heard them say

Welcome to the Hotel Dunkin’ Donuts
Such a lovely place, such a lovely glaze
Plenty of room at the Hotel Dunkin’ Donuts
Any time of year, you can eat ’em here

Her fav is the Chocolate Frosted, but she got the Chocolate Glazed
She’s got a lot of yummy yummy cakes, that she calls friends
How they eat in the breakroom, sweet summer sweat
Some eat to remember, some eat to forget
So I called up the baker, please bring me my Lime
He said, “We haven’t had that flavor here since 1989”
And still those crullers are calling from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night, just to hear them say

Welcome to the Hotel Dunkin’ Donuts
Such a lovely place, such a yummy glaze
They’re eating ’em up at the Hotel Dunkin’ Donuts
What a nice surprise, bring your appetite

Donuts on the ceiling, large coffees on ice
And she said, “We are all just customers here of our own device”
And in the baker’s kitchen, they scrambled for the yeast
They kneed it with their steely fists, but they just can’t smash the yeast
Last thing I remember, I was running for the door
I had to find the way back to the place I parked my car
Relax said the cashier, we are programmed to receive
You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave
