The King Is Dead!

by Orsen
(Canada)

You did'nt see me in Plattsburgh
I don't sell toupees in Maine
That wasn't me you spotted
doing laundry in Key Biscayne

So let my body rest in Graceland
and let my soul go home
Ladies and Gentlemen I've left the building
so please leave me alone

You've turned me into a cartoon
bloated in a one piece suit
hair dye trickling down my face
mumbling "thank you very much"

I'm tired of all this Elvis culture
that feeds the Presley lore
You fools are waiting for a resurrection
off my bathroom floor

So let my body rest in Graceland
and let my soul go home
Ladies and Gentlemen I've left the building
so please leave me alone

Go ahead and worship Lennon
rommanticize Marylin as being sane
but don't inflate my legend
by comparing "Blue Hawaii" with "Citizen Kane"

All this posthumous devotion
for just a hillbilly with hips
I can't be your religion
because the King Is Dead!
