Elvis
White trash
Elvis
The Memphis flash
Elvis
Didn't smoke hash
Would have been a sissy without Johnny Cash
Elvis
Didn't dodge the draft
Elvis
Had his own aircraft
Elvis
Having a laugh
Elvis
On the Lisa Marie
In a color photograph
Elvis
Under the hood
Elvis
Cadillac blood
Elvis
Darling bud
Flowered and return to the Mississippi Mud
Elvis
Ain't gonna rot
Elvis
In a Memphis plot
Elvis
Didn't hear the shot
Dr. King died just across the lot from
Elvis
Vanilla ice cream
Elvis
Girls of 14
Elvis
Memphis spleen
Shooting tv's
Reading Corinthians 13
Elvis
With God on his knees
Elvis
On three tv's
Elvis
Here come the killer bees
Head full o' honey
Elvis
The bumper stickers
Elvis
The white knickers
Elvis
The white nigger
Ate a cheeseburger 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
[Elvis spoken repeatedly at various times until song's end]
Stamps
Necromance
Fans
Psychopants
The public enemy
Don't mean shit to Chuck D
Changed the center of gravity
Made it slippy

The pelvis
The Psalmist
The genius
The generous
Forigve us
Pray for us
(Elvis)
