  • Lyrics
  • Tonight we sleep on silken sheets
    We drink fine wine and eat rare meats
    On Carousel and gambling stake
    Our fortunes speed, and dissipate
    It's candlelight and chandelier
    It's silver plate and crystal clear
    The nights we stay at Hotel Grand

    Tonight we dine at Hotel Ritz
    (A golden dish with every wish )
    It's mirrored walls, and velvet drapes
    Dry champagne, and bursting grapes
    Dover sole, and Oeufs Mornay
    Profiteroles and Peach Flambe
    The waiters dance on fingertips
    The nights we dine at Hotel Ritz

    One more toast to greet the morn
    The wine and dine have danced till dawn
    Where's my Continental Bride?
    We'll Continental slip and slide
    Early morning pinch and bite -
    (These French girls always like to fight)
    It's serenade and Sarabande
    The nights we stay at Hotel Grand
    Les nuits qu'on passe à l'Hotel GrandeWriter/s: GARY BROOKER, KEITH REID
