Hello walls, (hello) (hello) How'd things go for you today? Don't you miss her Since she up and walked away? And I'll bet you dread to spend Another lonely night with me But lonely walls, I'll keep you company
Hello window (hello) (hello) Well I see that you're still here Aren't you lonely Since our darlin' disappeared? Well, look here, is that a teardrop In the corner of your pane? Now don't you try to tell me that it's rain
She went away and left us all alone The way she planned Guess we'll have to learn to get along Without her if we can
Hello ceiling, (hello) (hello) I'm gonna stare at you awhile You know I can't sleep So won't you bear with me awhile?
We must all stick together or else I'll lose my mind I've got a feelin', she'll be gone a long, long time (Hello, hello)

"Friends In Low Places" by Garth Brooks was written by two Nashville songwriters after a meal in a local restaurant. One of them forgot his money, but said not to worry, "I have friends in low places. I know the cook."
The chorus of "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir" in "Lady Marmalade" is French for "Do you want to sleep with me tonight?" When Labelle performed it on television, they had to change it to "Voulez-vous danser avec moi ce soir" (Do you want to dance with me tonight?).
