Elvis, white trash
Elvis, the Memphis flash
Elvis, didn't smoke hash
Would've been a sissy without Johnny Cash

Elvis, didn't dodge the draft
Elvis, had his own aircraft
Elvis, having a laugh
On the Lisa Marie in a color photograph

Elvis, under the hood
Elvis, with Cadillac blood
Elvis, darling bud
Flowered and returned to the Mississippi mud

Elvis, ain't gonna rot
Elvis in a Memphis plot
Elvis, he didn't hear the shot
And Dr. King died just across the lot from

Elvis, vanilla ice cream
Elvis, girls of fourteen
Elvis, the Memphis spleen
Shooting TVs reading Corinthians' 13

Elvis with God on his knees
Elvis, owned three TVs
Elvis, here come the killer bees
Head full of honey, [Incomprehensible]

Elvis, the bumper stickers
Elvis, the white knickers
Elvis, the white nigger
Ate at King Burger and just kept getting bigger

Elvis, sang to win
Elvis, the battle hymn
Elvis, the battle to be slim
Elvis ate America before America ate him
