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

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, 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 ....

Best pop song ever made...when I was 20 I worked in a petrol station in Suffolk, UK.....I had a Prefab Sprout album playing in the back-office......in walks Martin.....I asked him for his autograph and he said "Nobody's ever asked me for that before..."...we both laughed....lovely man....I've kept it in my bedside draw , tucked in the CD case, all my life...right by me now.
