The King of Rock 'N' Roll
Prefab Sprout Lyrics


La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

All my lazy teenage boasts
Are now high precision ghosts
And they're coming 'round the track to haunt me
When she looks at me and laughs I remind her of the facts
I'm the king of rock 'n' roll completely
Up from suede shoes to my baby blues

Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque

The dream helps you forget you ain't never danced a step
You were never fleet of foot, hippy
All the pathos you can keep for the children in the street
For the vision I have had is sweeping
New broom, this room, sweep it clean

(Hot dog)

Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque

High kickin' dandy, fine figure fine cut a fine figure fine, oh yeah
Long legged candy, fine figure fine cut a fine figure fine, oh yeah

Now my rhythm ain't so hot, but it's the only friend I've got
I'm the king of rock 'n' roll completely
All the pretty birds have flown, now I'm dancing on my own
I'm the king of rock 'n' roll completely
And I'm up from suede shoes to my baby blues

(Hot dog)

Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque

(Now you're lonesome)

High kickin' dandy, fine figure fine cut a fine figure fine, oh yeah
Long legged candy, fine figure fine cut a fine figure fine, oh yeah

Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque (la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la)
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque (the king of rock 'n' roll)
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque (la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la)
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque (the king of rock 'n' roll)
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque

For the vision I have had is sweeping
New broom, this room, sweep it clean
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque
High kickin' dandy, fine figure fine cut a fine figure fine oh yeah ;
Long legged candy, fine figure fine cut a fine figure fine oh yeah ;
Now my rhythm ain't so hot, but it's the only friend I've got
I'm the king of rock 'n' roll completely
All the pretty birds have flown now I'm dancing on my own
I'm the king of rock 'n' roll completely
Up from, suede shoes to my baby blues
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque
High kickin' dandy, fine figure fine cut a fine figure fine oh yeah ;
Long legged candy, fine figure fine cut a fine figure fine oh yeah ;
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque


You welcome ....

Listening to this in the bath with a Tia Maria & Coke to celebrate my Birthday while daughter cooks her Da her & I a lovely Curry with homemade Naan made with Greek yogurt instead of Ghee!
This is an absolute CLASSIC, taught my late Nephew Damian & his sister Ashleigh all the words to this when they were children,unfortunately Damian passed away aged 32 but this always reminds me of him..
D.R.G loved & remembered for the selfless person he was..xxx
