Elvis Is Back In The Building Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

A man of modest
beginnings had the
nerve to try to
change the world
Fought like a lion
even though he was
cryin' in a
sea of deep despair
tried to hide the
energy
tried to hide the
light
afraid of being
turned in
grappling with his nerves
a mind working at the speed of lightening
a man with a heart of gold
just tryin' to do the right thing
bringing joy to countless thousands
and what did we do to him?
as he grew OLD and outdated
we did something utterly APPALLING!
made him out to be a caricature
nothing more than a joke
treated him like T R A S H
As he grew old and outdated
And, yes, we did the same thing
to marilyn
I WANT THEM TO KNOW
That what we did was so very wrong
We TORE out their hearts out
When they gave us so much
I want them to know
that we are so VERY SORRY
About what WE did
I will say a prayer for THEM
I want them to know
THAT OUR HATS ARE OFF TO THEM !
because they were such a generous souls
such good hearts
I suspect that their G H O S T s
are still with us and that they will soon
RISE AGAIN
to sing another day
to sing another day
to sing another day
In a mind-blowing EARTH-shattering way
Because good souls never die
Good spirits NEVER DIE
Believe me when i say
Elvis is BACK in the building
BABY
Elvis is BACK in the building
BABY
Elvis is BACK in the building
BABY
