I loosen up my collar when it's warm outside
And I wear a heavy coat when it's cold
I call up the doctor when my fever's high
See a tailor when my suit gets old

And when I need a little company
There's only one girl I wanna see
And she lives in Memphis, Tennessee
I think I'll Memphis me
One more time, yeah, yeah
Memphis me, one more time

It's early in the morning in Birmingham
And I wish that I could stay in bed
'Cause I'm dreaming that she's with me here where I am
And I know it's only in my head

When I need a little company
She's the only girl I wanna see
But she lives in Memphis, Tennessee
I guess I'll Memphis me
One more time, yeah, yeah
Memphis me, one more time

A farmer has to live where his crops will grow
And a peddler has to sell his wares
The children need to learn what the teachers know
Everybody needs someone who cares

So when I need a little company
There's only one place for me to be
And it's here in Memphis, Tennessee
I had to Memphis me, one more time, yeah, yeah
Memphis me, one more time, yeah, yeah
One more time, Memphis me
One more time
