"Disgraceland" as written by Bob Marlette and Alice Cooper....
I want to tell you a story, happened long ago
About a redneck boy down from Tupelo
I got the slick black hair, I played a rock guitar
I liked to shake my hips, man, then i went too far

He ate his weight in country ham
Killed on pills and woke in Disgraceland
Disgraceland
Disgraceland
Disgraceland

I had a lot of girls, yeah, I had a lot of guns
When they found me dead, ow, the whole world was stunned
Went to the pearly gates, said, "I'm the hippest thing"
And Peter said "Well son, we already got ourselves a king"

He lived on southern deep-fried spam,
Killed on pills and woke in Disgraceland
Disgraceland
Disgraceland
Disgraceland

He finished his short life sweaty and bloated and stoned
(A-Hey-Hey)
He ruled his domain and he died on the throne
No "Yes-Men", no colonel, he went all alone...

(Hey, man, that looks like me down there on the floor)

I heard the devil cry real loud and clear
"You were the big man, there, hejust a sideman here
Well, I know your face, and I've heard your name
Looks like heaven's loss, gonna be my gain"
(I've got plans for you, man)

He ate his weight in country ham
Killed on pills and woke in Disgraceland
Disgraceland
Disgraceland
Disgraceland
Disgraceland
Disgraceland
Disgraceland
Disgraceland


Well, I woke up, right here in Disgraceland
Disgraceland, thank you, thank you very much

    General CommentI don't see how this is Alice being a goody-goody. :S I always saw it as him poking fun at Elvis as in lets all point and laugh what a joke he turned into, rather than a moral story. I mean he did a whole album about himself going to hell so he'd be a bit of a hypocrite if he looked down on Elvis. Vincent Furnier may be a christian, but Alice Cooper is a very bad man- thats the point of him.

    General CommentThis album was pretty depressing... this is the only track I like actually. Compared to Brutal Planet, Dragontown was a joke.

    General CommentI like Elvis, but it's easy to admit this is a good song, probably the best (at least the cathiest) on the album. Still, pretty harsh words for such an American Icon!

    General CommentMmmm - I don't know, this leaves a bad taste. I don't care for Alice's more Christian songs, & this is very moral & goody-goody. "Oooh, Elvis was a bad man, so he goes to Hell!". Nasty. (And I don't even like Elvis).

    General CommentI loved this album along with brutal planet. This song got me laughing because of his parody of Elvis! And yes, Vincent Furnier is a christian. Alice Cooper is his mental homicidal alter ego. Off stage, he's actually a pretty decent guy.
