Song by Revenue Parody to the music of “American Pie” by Don McLean. Artist: Justin Beauchamp Lyrics: Kerry Mack December 2020 A long, long time ago I still remember how that pricing strategy made me smile And I knew if I had my chance That I could make these guests overpay And can -being the owners would be happy for a while But March 20 made me shiver With every event that didn’t deliver bad news to the door I couldn’t take one more step I can’t remember if I had cried When I realized that no more guests would arrive But something deeply touched me inside The day the room demand fell So bye, bye to COVID 19 I want to resell the rates like in 2019 I want that my STR report results mean something Oh please give us back the request for our room… Please give us our request for our return room Did you write your recovery strategy? And have you changed the rates for our new reality? I know these low rates are causing agony Did you create the right OTA promotions? And have you made sure that our best rate is displayed? I know these net rates bring us heartache and misfortune Well I know the rates will go up again Because travelers are tired of sitting in their den Hotels will fill up every night Meetings will happen again on place I’m a talented revenue manager With many strategies that are tried and true But I knew I was out of luck The day the room demand died I started chanting Bye, bye to COVID 19 I want to resell the rates as in 2019 I want my STR report results to mean something Oh please give us the request for our room… Please return the request for our room. Now for eight months we’ve been trying everything As the demand for rooms keeps dropping But it’s not like it used to be In the good old days we were at the top of our game But don’t worry , we will have our praise again Once we get a vaccine, oh you’ll see And while things look bleak right now This whole team has all the know-how to come back triumphantly and overtake the market after this downturn Oh we will prevail again as we always do Our talent will generate higher income And soon we will say goodbye To the day the room demand is dead We were singing Bye, bye to COVID 19 I want to resell the rates like in 2019 I want them my STR report results mean something Oh please give us back our room request … Please give us back our room request.
