His Latest Flame
Elvis Presley Lyrics


A very old friend came by today
'Cause he was telling everyone in town
Of the love that he just found
And Marie's the name of his latest flame

He talked and talked and I heard him say
That she had the longest blackest hair
The prettiest green eyes anywhere
And Marie's the name of his latest flame
Though I smiled the tears inside were a-burning
I wished him luck and then he said goodbye
He was gone but still his words kept returning
What else was there for me to do but cry?

Would you believe that yesterday
This girl was in my arms and swore to me
She'd be mine eternally?
And Marie's the name of his latest flame

Though I smiled the tears inside were a-burning
I wished him luck and then he said goodbye
He was gone but still his words kept returning
What else was there for me to do but cry?

Would you believe that yesterday
This girl was in my arms and swore to me
She'd be mine eternally?
And Marie's the name of his latest flame

Yeah Marie's the name of his latest flame
Oh Marie's the name of his latest flame
Oh Marie's the name

rockhard

this IS an AMAZING record
utterly unique
strange actually
three verses (one repeated) two bridges
NO CHORUS!
the genius drumming, the percisonly placed rhythm guitar, the dagger piano stabs and tictac bass in the bridges
elvis's voice so fragile like a thin pane of glass
EVERY ELEMENT OF THIS MASTERPIECE IS PERFECT
BARLEY TWO MINUTES
THAT IS WEIRD!!
its really strange, but so addictive
its like a mini candy bar for your ears so short and sweet
i would bet no one has ever put this record on the turntable without playing it at least a couple of times in a row
its like it was designed by a team of scientists to get people to keep pumping coins into the jukebox
like B.F, Skinner did with mice and cocaine

Don't care what anybody says. This will never go out of style. Elvis is one of the greatest. For ever.

people thought he was racist but he really wasn't, he actually was the biggest, and secret may i add, donators to Martin Luther King, they know that because they kept all the receipts at Graceland

Christopher Phillips

@JigsoreKills thank you for defending me.

JigsoreKills

@Christopher Phillips ...my point is i'm trying to defend you? You're sounding like Rabbit White now though, so maybe I don't want to defend you.
