Colorblind James Experience – Considering A Move To Memphis lyrics

I'm considering a move to Memphis with my hair all aglow
When I arrive in Memphis, I'm bound to meet up with someone I might know

I'm considering, I'm considering
A move to Memphis, a move to Memphis
I'm considering, I'm considering

I'll visit the Graceland mansion and set my face in wax
Then go back to my motel room to file my income tax
I'm considering a move to Memphis and this much I know
When I arrive in Memphis, I'll have to spent my dough
I'll walk down to Beale Street to watch the jug band show
I'll shake hands with Gus Cannon, he's someone I should know
I'll get myself a motel room that's not too small to see
I'll get one with a private bath and a black and white tv
Memphis isn't all that big, at least that's how I found it
Why, it took only an hour and a half to walk completely around it
Memphis isn't all that big, it isn't all that wide
Still, it is the kind of place where a country boy can hide

I'm considering, I'm considering
A move to Memphis, a move to Memphis
I'm considering, I'm considering

I'll find a favourite restaurant and eat there every day
And at the nearby bowling alley I'll bowl my cares away
Some days I'll order chicken, some days I'll order fish
Some days I'll have piroshki's, that's a Polish dish
And after bowling twenty frames, I'll sit and have a beer
Perhaps I meet a pretty girl who is a barmaid there
I'll get a job at a steak house, wash dishes, mob floors
Yes, I know I won't get rich
Memphis is the kind of town that won't feel like a trap
Besides, I kind of like the way it sits there on the map
I'm considering a move to Memphis, that's Memphis Tennessee
It worked for Elvis Presley, why can't it work for me?
The people in the restaurants there will all use forks and knives
They won't take decongestions though for fear of getting hives

I'm considering, I'm considering
A move to Memphis, a move to Memphis
I'm considering, I'm considering

I'll ask the lowly sparrow, up in his lofty perch
"Would you please direct me to the local Baptist church?"
I'll attend the Wednesday meeting and there I'll speak in tongues
I'll shout and holler "praise the lord" ''till I nearly burst my lungs
Someday I'll return to Memphis in my own private jet
I'll remember my first visit there, that's if I don't forget
When I arrive in Memphis I'll put a sign out on the door
"It's ok to disturb me, that's what I came here for"

I'm considering, I'm considering
A move to Memphis, a move to Memphis
I'm considering, I'm considering
