Tribute to Elvis ©

John Bearcat-Redmond
Fife, Scotland
1979

On the sixteenth of August in Nineteen Seventy Seven
At the age of forty two a man was sent to heaven
The man he was the greatest that you have ever seen
No one will ever take his place or ever has there been

He was the King of Rock 'n Roll, the King of ballads too
No one will ever take his place, no one will ever do
He has ten million followers and all of them are true
He was a living legend a thing that's hard to do

For twenty two years he was the man the world all loved the best
The son of a poor drifter who came from America's west
A driver who had a singing voice, and a pair of swaying hips
The songs he sung were so good they stuck right to your lips

And now they try and ruin his name
And all the good he had done
Oh please God make them leave him alone
He will always be our.......... Number One
