"Graceland" as written by and Alejandro Rosso/reyes Gonzales....
I wish I lived in Graceland
But I only had one day
A postcard from the mainland
Is all I have today

Forty thousand million
And a Rolls Royce engine
Couldn’t take me anywhere
Yes I tried with Aspirin
And a nice calm weekend
But my heart has left me here

I wish I had that skin tan
That you are born into
They’d see me as a warm man
Just like they’re seeing you

Forty thousand million
And a Rolls Royce engine
Couldn’t take me anywhere
Yes I tried with Aspirin
And a nice calm weekend
But my heart has left me here

I drown in my drool
Over all the goodies that they get
I drown in a pool
In a pool of my own sweat

Forty thousand million
And a Rolls Royce engine
Couldn’t take me anywhere
Yes I tried with Aspirin
And a nice calm weekend
But my heart has left me

    General Commentthat, and maybe the story of a man who can't escape his meaningless life no matter how many vacations abroad he goes on. he can never really grow that tan and become the southern man, free from inhibitions and responsibilities
