Hi. I liked this song since I saw the Big Lebowski film. I'm from Seville, at Spain, where there are lots of Gypsy people so I tried to decode this lyric and put it here because this is the first website that google shows me when I was searching for this lyric.

I used this dictionary to find the "Jestlé" word, that means "To think".

****** Song 1 ******

Por el camino del desierto
el viento me despeina
sube aroma de colitas (marijuana)
en una duna del aire.
Ella a lo lejos.
Una luz centellea.
La diadema de metal.
Te vi -gracias a- ella anoche.

Alli estaba a las entradas.
Y las campanas -van a- sonar.
Y me dije: ya mismo
el (dios) tapó lo del cielo (el sol).
Ella enciende una vela
y muestra el camino.
Se oyen voces en el corredor
y yo te digo que diciendo:

(in english)

Welcome to see hotel california.
such a lovely place.
such a lovely place.
Welcome to see hotel california.
such a lovely place.
such a lovely place.

(A) ella le -va- lo que brilla. (los lujos)
Tiene un mercedes.
Rodeada (de) chicos guapos,
(que) ella llama amigos.
Cuando bailan despacio.
Perfume de verano.
Hay quien viene (al hotel) para recordar
y (hay) otras (personas que vienen) para olvidar.

Le pedí al capitán
que sirviera el vino.
Y me dijo: - No hemos
tenido este alcohol
desde el sesenta y nueve. ('69)
Las voces que llamando.
-Pensé- yo al despertar (que)
la noche es para decir:

Welcome to see hotel california.
such a lovely place.
such a lovely place.
Welcome to see hotel california.
such a lovely place.
such a lovely place.

(speaking)

El espejo en el techo,
champán en el hielo.
Y ella dijo:
"- Somos todos prisioneros.
Por propia voluntad."
Eramos cuatro principales, (los que veníamos)
a "hacer su siesta" (a "dormirla", matarla)
a atacar a la bestia,
pero no la logramos matar.

(singing again)

Mi último recuerdo
corri hacia, -allí en donde está-, la puerta.
Debía encontrar el camino
por donde había llegado.
Relax, dijo el portero.
Yo en eso -no caí en la cuenta-.
Puede salir cuando quiere,
pero nunca ha de partir.

Welcome to see hotel california.
such a lovely place.
such a lovely place.
Welcome to see hotel california.
such a lovely place.
such a lovely place.

****** Song 1 ******

On the desert road
The wind ruffles me.
There was the smell of colitas
from a dune in the air.
She's in the distance.
A light shimmers.
A metal headband.
I saw you thanks to it last night.

She was at the entrance
And the bell was going to ring,
And I said to myself
God is hiding the sun.
She lights a candle
and she shows the way.
Voices are heard in the corridor.
And I say you that they are saying:

(in english)

Welcome to see hotel california.
such a lovely place.
such a lovely place.
Welcome to see hotel california.
such a lovely place.
such a lovely place.

She likes lushness.
She had a Mercedes car.
Surrounded by cute boys
She called friends.
When they are dancing slowly
Summer perfumes
Some were to remember
And others to forget.

I asked the captain
To serve the wine
And he said he no longer
Had this alcohol
Since sixty-nine.
The voices calling me
I thought upon waking.
The night is to say:

Welcome to see hotel california.
such a lovely place.
such a lovely place.
Welcome to see hotel california.
such a lovely place.
such a lovely place.

(speaking)

A mirror on the ceiling,
Champagne on ice.
And she said: “We are all prisoners
Of our own will.”
We were four main men
to make her "sleep",
to attak to the beast.
But we weren't able to kill her.

(singing again)

My last memory --
I ran to the door.
I should find the way back.
From where I had come.
"Relax," said the doorman,
I did not realized it.
You can leave when you want
But never depart.”

Welcome to see hotel california.
such a lovely place.
such a lovely place.
Welcome to see hotel california.
such a lovely place.
such a lovely place.


****** Song 2 ******

(speaking)

A mirror on the ceiling,
Champagne on ice.
And she said: “We are all prisoners”
We were four main men
to make her "sleep",
to attak to the beast, with our daggers.
But we weren't able to kill her.

Welcome. Hotel california.
such a lovely place.
such a lovely place.
Welcome. Hotel california.
such a lovely place.
such a lovely place.

Hi jusore,

Wow! Welcome to the Forum, and muchisimas gracias for your great post, which took a lot of time and effort. I don't have time right now to read it thoroughly, look at the links and write a proper reply, because tomorrow I'm going to the Gipsy Kings concert here in Los Angeles, and I have a lot to do to get ready! :D I'll read your post and reply soon.

Thanks,

Amanda :geek:
