memphis in your mind lyrics – ringo starr & his all starr band

a cat has nine lives
but man, you don’t live twice
you can play for a price
bring your friend and his dice

if you wanna be the king
you gotta go to memphis
in your mind

it’s a bad point of view
if that gloom got through to you
well, i kissed peggy sue
and you could have too

ain’t that a shame
you never went to memphis
in your mind

there’s no place cooler
when you got your bop-a-lula on
slip into your blue suede shoes
we’re dancin’ ’til the break of dawn

son records will be playin’
you’ll know every word they’re sayin’s true
heartbreak hotel is takin’ reservations
there’s a room for you

you can hire any town
get up but not get down
if you wanna hear the rockin’ sound
then go to memphis in your mind

there’s no place cooler
when you got your bop-a-lula on
slip into your blue suede shoes
we’re dancin’ ’til the break of dawn

son records will be playin’
you’ll know every word they’re sayin’s true
heartbreak hotel is takin’ reservations
there’s a room for you

you can have two left feet
and you can still keep the beat
if you’re sixteen and sweet
oh, you can’t leave your seat

if you wanna be the king
you gotta go to memphis in your mind
we can’t all be king
so go to memphis in your mind
