Doug Anthony All Stars – Dead Elvis lyrics

I was floating through the cemetery late last night
When I saw a ghost who was out of sight
He said, "Down in the graveyard there's a party going on
So get down, get down six feet and sing a spiritual song
Everyone's invited, we would be delighted
If you grabbed your favourite corpse and came along."

You don't move your arms and don't move your legs
You just do the, do the Dead Elvis
You don't grind your pelvis, it's the dance of the dead
You just do the, do the Dead Elvis

Your old hound dog's sniffin' at your tomb
Tryin' to find a bone that ain't been consumed
You can't jailhouse rock in your blue suede shoes
When you do, do, do - the Dead Elvis

I bet you're lonesome tonight in your hole in the ground
Old Shep's so shook up that he pissed on your crown
No one's crying in the chapel, get wise, get hip
There's some pretty heavy shit going down and you're it
Priscilla was delighted, all Dallas was invited
To poke fun a your corpse and kick your dog

You don't move your arms and don't move your legs
You just do the, do the Dead Elvis
You don't grind your pelvis, it's the dance of the dead
Come on and do the, do the Dead Elvis

It was a terrible day, when you had your cardiac arrest
They tried to find your heart but couldn't cut through the flesh
You can't Viva Las Vegas when there's no viva left
Come on and do, do, do - the Dead Elvis
