The King

The King

Saw him in Sun Studio. He had his feet upon the desk
Sleepin like a baby cause he hadn’t got time to rest
Workin’ his power out, the battery got flat
Marion gave him a microphone and he started to rock

And the stars were shining, shining oh so bright
and he became our king on the scene, in a golden light
Cause he was greater than us, it was easy to see
Sam hadn’t enough money, he had to leave

After 23 years of singin’, still on the top
but he’d started takin pills, and just couldn’t stop
and eaten his power out, the battery gone flat
Parker gave him a microphone, and he started to rock

And the stars were shining, shining oh so bright
and he became our king on the scene, in a golden light
Cause he was bigger than us, it was easy to see
His heart couldn’t manage, he had to leave

Now, he’s drivin’ in heaven, in a big fancy car
Got a crowd of disciples around him, he’s a famous star
They all come to see him, The American King
They give him a microphone and now he starts to sing

And the stars are shining, shining oh so bright
and he is our king on the scene, in a golden light
Cause he is greater than us, it is easy to see
We hadn’t enough in common, so he had to leave
Still he is our king, but he had to leave
He is our King and he’ll never ever gonna leave
