The band did not want "Me & Elvis" to be their main release, fearing it would give radio audiences the impression that they were a novelty act. Columbia released the song against the band's wishes.The...
Me and Elvis used to have a good time
We'd cash in all our coke bottles
to buy a quart wine
Me and Elvis we'd ride out to the park
Smoke his daddy's cigarettes
come home after dark
Me and Elvis liked to really rock n roll
We liked to crank up our guitars
n then we'd really lose control
Me and Elvis we'd ride our motorbikes
We used to always skip school,
we did just what we liked

(Chorus)
Me and Elvis
Elvis and I (2x)

Me and Elvis we were cool with the chicks
We had a smooth delivery
n we knew how to get our kicks
Me and Elvis never worried bout the cops
He flashed that badge he got from Nixon
every time that we got stopped
Me and Elvis used to play pinball all day
N the machines would never tilt,
no one ever had to pay
Me and Elvis liked our leather jackets black
N we'd ride up and down the river
in a brand new Cadillac

(Chorus)

Sweating in the Memphis sun
Elvis kept us in the shade
N when the crowd got much too thick
Elvis put up barricades
N when the colonel gave him lemons
Elvis served up lemonade
N when the time came for departure
Elvis had his dues full paid

Me and Elvis really tried to disappear
We took his jet down to Las Vegas
n we stayed a coupla years
Me and Elvis watched TV till it got late
N we would never change the channel,
we'd use Elvis'.38
Me and Elvis never meant to sing the blues
But avalanches never go
in the direction that you choose
Me and Elvis finally made our sacrifice
N now his pictures on my mantle
sitting next to Jesus Christ

(Chorus 2x)
