Black Elvis Submit Correct Lyrics

Yeah
For the two thousand
(Two thousand)
Black Elvis
(Black Elvis)

We get raw with this
(Hand me my guitar)
Tour bus packed
(Tour bus packed)

Black Elvis, recordin' in the forty-eight-track studio
Madison Square Garden sound check, to speak direct
Fans in the upper level, backstage passes
Wearin' diamonds around my glasses, leather coat

Thirty thousand from Wilson, countin' the mill's
I'm talkin' to Andre Harrell with a chauffeur drivin' me around
In the green Rolls Royce, parked parallel on Fifth Avenue
Steppin' in Bloomingdale's, waitin' for Celine Dion to get her nails done

Tour dates start tomorrow
MCI send the cash through Wells Fargo
Black Elvis, twenty-eight G's a night
Tour bus with the Motley Crue, who gon' stop who?
Rock star don't need no tattoo

Guitar out of the sharp
Fender bass with the Stratocaster
With Prodigy, Rage Against the Machine
Flyin' over the Atlantic ocean with the potion

Black Elvis, rock star, walkin' down Broadway
What y'all thinkin' about?
Black Elvis, rock star, walkin' down Broadway
Chillin' in the project hallway

Black Elvis, rock star, walkin' down Broadway
What y'all thinkin' about?

Tour bus painted neon green with black wheels
We do big wheels, count big head Franklin bills
Movin' up, that's when I'm Black Elvis at the Civic Center
Promoter book venues that are too small, ignore the call

Seventy thousand jam-packed arenas
With rock fans wearin' backpacks
Merchandise sell nice gold shirts with red lights
Sponsored by Dial soap and a Heineken

The biggest rock star gon' rhyme again
Roadie cases for eight months, Samsonite suitcases
Rappers comin' home with no money on the red eye with dead eyes
Stadium tickets, watch scalpers get wicked

Pull up in my limo, ejectin' your demo
(Your demo)
Stretch Lamborghinis with four doors, with four floors
Followin' right behind yours, basic Continental
Get out your rental before I get mental
(Yeah, baby)

Black Elvis, rock star, walkin' down Broadway
What y'all thinkin' about?
Black Elvis, rock star, walkin' down Broadway
Chillin' in the project hallway

Black Elvis, rock star, walkin' down Broadway
What y'all thinkin' about?
Black Elvis, rock star, walkin' down Broadway
Chillin' in the project hallway

Huge signs on highways, you see the biggest advertisements
I'm at [unverified] office getting my next assignment
Walk in the Sony building, grab checks
Stop in a Hilton, [unverified]

On the back of my royalty statements
My name is Matthew
Three apartments on the West
With two hundred songs

Five minutes each on Ampex reels
At the [unverified] chewin' billionaire meals
At the Apollo, can you digest?
I'm a hard act to swallow

With a Paris France model, with a real estate agent
That's building me a kid's playground in Denver, Colorado
Vacation unknown when I'm speakin' three-way with Roberto Duran
And Sugar Ray Leonard on the cellular phone
Upstate Connecticut, hold you rap style with a better grip
(I'm a rock star now)

Black Elvis, rock star, walkin' down Broadway
What y'all thinkin' about?
Black Elvis, rock star, walkin' down Broadway
Chillin' in the project hallway

Black Elvis, rock star, walkin' down Broadway
What y'all thinkin' about?
Black Elvis, rock star, walkin' down Broadway
Chillin' in the project hallway
