elvis be true lyrics – girlysound

everyone’s talking about elvis
cause it seems like a thing that we do
elvis is walking round listlessly
seems he can’t even die if he wanted to

it’s a bad business to be in
you don’t get thanked and you don’t get paid
it’s a hard world to be in with and to end with
and to think about leaving behind

examining the body in memphis
waiting five hours to get into graceland
is this anybody’s idea of a good time or a good joke
airport biographies are usually true

the fame and fortune took it’s toll
he’s not the king of rock and roll anymore
he’s just a junkie redneck

pull a sheet over your head
fold your arms across your chest
lie back in bed
you can call from wisconsin tomorrow

everyone’s talking about elvis
cause it seems like a thing that we do
elvis is living too fat and slow now to care
what we say about him

picking up hitch hiking elvises
presenting babies at the foot of his grave
he was watching tv and laughing to himself
he just had to tell someone how he did it

elvis be good to me
elvis be true
elvis i love you
elvis be true
elvis be near me
el
elvis come back to me
please elvis be kind

everything’s coming up roses
everything’s coming up elvis
everything’s coming up roses
everything’s coming up elvis

elvis elvis elvis be true
