Back to I Try To Think About Elvis lyrics

I Try To Think About Elvis

I'm sorry, I forgot what it was

I try to think about Elvis, Memphis
Oprah in the afternoon
I try to think about palm trees, fig leaves
'The Creature from The Black Lagoon'

I try to think about high heels
And good deals, anything to get me through
I just can't concentrate
You're all I think about these days

I try to contemplate the cosmos and what goes
Round and round the sky at night
I try to think about champagne and freight trains
Slowly rolling out of sight

I try to focus on the headlines
And street crimes, every time I think I might
I just can't concentrate
You're all I think about these days

My mind wanders where it will
When it settles right on you
I forget what I should say
I forget what I should do

My mind wanders where it will
And when it settles right on you
I forget what I should say
I forget what I should do

Come on Patty
Get it together

I try to think about Shakespeare, leap year
'The Beatles' or 'The Rolling Stones'
I try to think about hair-do's and tattoos
Sushi bars and saxophones

I try to think about the talk shows
And new clothes but I guess I should have known
I just can't concentrate
You're all I think about these days
You're all I think about these days
