(To the tune of Hotel California)
Once in Northern Virginia, a trademark was filed
A Mexican company a long list compiled
Cosmetics and phone cases, purses, hair gel and shoes
The list went on for six classes, just what did they have to lose?
During examination, a disclaimer was sought
The applicant gladly complied, any fear of refusal was for naught.
Then the mark was published, but the Eagles they did see
Their lawyers got involved
Said you can’t use this for free
Registering HOTEL CALIFORNIA
Such a lovely try (such a lovely try) Such a lovely cry
Don’t even try to use HOTEL CALIFORNIA
For any goods (for any goods) in our neighborhoods….
