Something ‘Bout A Glitch

Old Charlie went to Motel 6

He thought he’d spend the night

He heard them bragging on TV

How they’d leave on a light

 —

The night clerk told him, yessiree

We’ve got a room for you

We even left the light on

So you can see what e’er you do

 —

Charlie said, won’t need the light

Just gotta get some sleep

But I knew you left it on, he said

I seen it on TV

 —

Well, Charlie hit the sack and then

Looked over at the light

Now this won’t do, he said aloud

I’ll be awake all night

 —

Old Charlie he searched high and low

Said something ‘bout a glitch

It looks as though this lamp here

Hasn’t got a switch

 —

He called the night clerk on the phone

And told him ‘bout the trouble

The guy just laughed and then he said

I sure hate to burst your bubble

 —

But yes, he said, the light is on

Laughed so hard it made him cough

We said we’d leave it on for you

We never said we’d turn it off
