The last time I saw Elvis
He was shootin' at a color TV
The phones were ringin' at the pink motel
And the rest was history

He was the king

The last time I saw Elvis
He was singin' a gospel song
You could tell he had the feelin'
And the whole world sang along

He was the king

The last time I saw Elvis
He was up on the silver screen
Pushin' a plow in a black and white movie
And everybody started to scream

He was the king

The last time I saw Elvis
It was some kind of Vegas dream
Spotlights flashed on a silver cape
And a blue haired lady screamed

He was the king

The last time I saw Elvis
He was frontin' a three piece band
Rockin' on the back of a flatbed truck
With an old guitar in his hand

He was the king

The last time I saw Elvis
He was ridin' in a pink Cadillac
Wind was blowin' through his hair
And he never did look back

He was the king
