They walk along by the old canal
They're bound by those cathedral bells
Stopped into the restaurant hotel
Where the desk clerk dressed in white
With a face as black as night
He said, "Checkout time's at eight"
Bringin' back that simple twist of fate

Has anyone ever heard of a hotel with a checkout time of eight o'clock (other than a seedy hourly rate hotel, of course)? We have yet to encounter one.
