My Boy
Elvis Presley Lyrics


You're sleeping son, I know
But, really, this can't wait
I wanted to explain
Before it gets too late
For your mother and me
Love has finally died
This is no happy home
But God knows how I've tried
Because you're all I have, my boy
You are my life, my pride, my joy
And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy
I know it's hard to understand
Why did we ever start?
We're more like strangers now
Each acting out a part
I have laughed, I have cried
I have lost every game
Taken all I can take
But I'll stay just the same
Because you're all I have, my boy
You are my life, my pride, my joy
And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy
Sleep on, you haven't heard a word
Perhaps it's just as well
Why spoil your little dreams
Why put you through the hell
Life is no fairytale
As one day you will know
But now you're just a child
I'll stay here and watch you grow
Because you're all I have, my boy
You are my life, my pride, my joy
And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy

Elvis will always be the one and only complete artist that ever lived. His voice (oh my God), looks, charisma, showmanship of stage, intelligence and the unbelievable way he delivered his songs makes you think he was talking to you directly.
I am disappointed in the main stream big media stations that don't play his music enough so the young generation can experience some of the magic that will hit their souls when they hear or see him perform. but i guess if they do it will show how inferior these days so called artists/singers are!!!


I have a dedicated playlist on my channel to king's fan who would like to play the guitar along while the chords scrolling across the screen. check it out
