Songtexte - Calling Elvis

Calling Elvis
calling elvis - is anybody home
calling elvis - I'm here all alone
did he leave the building
or can he come to the phone
calling elvis - I'm here all alone

well tell him I was calling just to wish him well
let me leave my number - heartbreak hotel
oh love me tender - baby dob't be cruel
return to sender - treat me like a fool

calling elvis - is anybody home
calling elvis - I'm here all alone
did he leave the building
or can he come to the phone
calling elvis - I'm here all alone

why don't you go get him - I'm his biggest fan
you gotta tell him - he's still the man
long distance baby - so far from home
don't you think maybe you could put him on

well tell him I was calling just to wish him well
let me leave my number - heartbreak hotel
oh love me tender - baby dob't be cruel
return to sender - treat me like a fool

calling elvis - is anybody home
calling elvis - I'm here all alone
did he leave the building
or can he come to the phone
calling elvis - I'm here all alone



Iron Hand
with all the clarity of dream
the sky so blue, the grass so green
the rank and file and the navy blue
the deep and strong, the straight and true

the blue line they got the given sign
the belts and boots marched forward in time
the wood and the leather the club and shield
swept like a wave across the battlefield

now with all the clarity of dream
the blood so red, the grass so green
the gleam of spur on the chestnut flank
the cavalry did burst upon the ranks

oh the iron will and the iron hand
in england's green and pleasant land
no music for the shameful scene
that night they said it had even shocked the queen

well alas we've seen it all before
knights in armour, days for yore
the same old fears and the same old crimes
we haven't changed since ancient times



Millionaire Blues
I woke up this morning, my jacuzzi wouldn't work
then the butler quit on me, man, can you believe it? jerk!
must have been my artistic temperament he couldn't take
how come nobody wants to give me a break?

I've got the blues right down, mean and low
I'm as low as the heels of my alligator shoes
you should know how it feels to have these millionaire blues
millionaire blues

well, I found one of my bathrooms and I made it to the sink
I called one of my managers up and I poured myself a drink.
oh, I swear I'd kill that little weasel if I could
I checked myself in the mirror - my hair was looking good, but

I had the blues right there, mean and mean and mean and low
as low as the heels on my alligator shoes
you should know how it feels to have these millionaire blues
millionaire blues
get down!

well, so much for breakfast, I couldn't face lunch
I thought I'd raise my spirits with a little champagne brunch.
I take the lamborghini, the flunkie parks the car
can you believe it, man, this other monkey won't let me in the bar!

I said, I said, "don't you know who I am, man?" and he says, "no."
no! can you believe it?
I'm as low as the heels of these alligator shoes
you should know how it feels to have these millionaire blues
millionaire blues, to have these millionaire blues,
millionaire blues

bad, bad!
that's bad! yeah
so hard,
it's hard sometimes for a boy
ah, I like that
that's good
get down!
you're making a very big mistake, man
oh yeah
you'll never work in this town again!
all right
