Series continued with the young man who had just purchased the inn and wasn't very efficient. There is a twist at the end.

I had just purchased my little inn
When my whole world began to spin
Caesar’s census brought a big crowd
Making our little town very loud

I needed more time to learn my trade
Before I faced the endless parade
Of travelers from far and from wide
To find a place they could reside

My place was packed to overflowing
This couple came and she was showing
My heart hurt me when I had to say
There is no room you must go away

If I had known then what I know now
I wouldn’t have roomed them with the cow
I was so sad and I couldn’t sleep
As I closed the door and watched her weep

There was more action in that shed
When I went down there to take some bread
I wanted to apologize
But they hugged me with happy eyes

A baby boy was born that night
It was a very eerie sight
He laid in the manger like a king
And I thought I heard some angels sing

Years later I had bought a new place
And my life moved at a hectic pace
I bought some inns in Jerusalem
And I made lots of money with them.

This baby who had become a man
Came to me with the strangest plan
He wanted to rent an upper room
For a Passover meal I presume
