The lyric "I hear the chauffeur coming to my door/Says there's room for maybe just one more" is a reference to "The Bus-Conductor", a short story involving a hearse driver by E. F. Benson, published in The Pall Mall Magazine in 1906. The story has been adapted several times and spawned an urban legend, with each version using the catchphrase, "Room for one more."
It was also featured in one of the promos for the season 5 of television series Bones.
