King Creole
Elvis Presley Lyrics


King Creole
There's a man in New Orleans
Who plays rock and roll
He's a guitar man
With a great big soul
He lays down a beat
Like a ton of coal
He goes by the name of King Creole

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip-shaking King Creole

When the king starts to do it
It's as good as done
He holds his guitar
like a Tommy gun
He starts to growl
From way down his throat
He bends a string
And that's all she wrote

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip-shaking King Creole

Well, he sings a song about a crawdad hole
He sings a song about a jelly roll
He sings a song about meat and greens
He sings some blues about New Orleans

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip-shaking King Creole

Well, he plays something evil
Then he plays something sweet
No matter what he plays
You got to get up on your feet

When he gets the rockin' fever
Baby, heaven sakes
He don't stop playin'
'Till his guitar breaks

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip-shaking King Creole

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip-shaking King Creole

Peace be with you.

But are you kidding me? I love his rockabilly tone but have you ever heard

Reach Out To Jesus
You’ll Never Walk Alone
Help Me
Hurt
Never Gonna Fall In Love
Make The World Go Away
You’ve Lost That Loving Feelin’

Those songs make believers in Christ out of Atheists. Even if your not religious you can feel the heart he puts into. I’ve never heard people sing like him and trying to sing like Elvis is like finding your soul, he has inspired me to sing.

Finding love is what we’re hear for. Yeah it didn’t work out for their marriage but how can you say he shouldn’t try to find a wife? He’s still a person.

We’re all about to be proven precognitive geniuses or idiots.

Swimsuit Breakfast seemed random until you realize it represented Shrove Teusday aka Fat Teusday aka Mardi Gras.
Coronation Theory might actually become canon.

Just a slice of bread

That's the power of "i know everything" and "i love fan fiction".
