A man of modest

Beginnings had the

Nerve to try to

Change the world

Fought like a lion

Even though he was

Cryin' in a

Sea of deep despair

Tried to hide the

Energy

Tried to hide the

Light

Afraid of being

Turned in

Grappling with his nerves

A mind working at the speed of lightening

A man with a heart of gold

Just tryin' to do the right thing

Bringing joy to countless thousands

And what did we do to him?

As he grew OLD and outdated

We did something utterly APPALLING!

Made him out to be a caricature

Nothing more than a joke

Treated him like T R A S H

As he grew old and outdated

And, yes, we did the same thing

To marilyn

I WANT THEM TO KNOW

That what we did was so very wrong

We TORE out their hearts out

When they gave us so much

I want them to know

That we are so VERY SORRY

About what WE did

I will say a prayer for THEM

I want them to know

THAT OUR HATS ARE OFF TO THEM !

Because they were such a generous souls

Such good hearts

I suspect that their G H O S T s

Are still with us and that they will soon

RISE AGAIN

To sing another day

To sing another day

To sing another day

In a mind-blowing EARTH-shattering way

Because good souls never die

Good spirits NEVER DIE

Believe me when i say

Elvis is BACK in the building

BABY

Elvis is BACK in the building

BABY

Elvis is BACK in the building

BABY



Isobel & Elizabeth
