The Lyrics

Thanks to Rick Cormier for the title idea, with his hilarious "New Pelvis."
They found blue Elvis
Bluer than suede shoes, what a fright
(Bloat, bloat, bloat)
Toppled off sat-on throne that night
Gobbled lard

They found blue Elvis
(Off throne)
Blue pills blended with deep-fried pies
(A no-no)
No more "Love meat tenders, large fries,"
Lunch was o'er

He was not taken lightly
Because he'd fat sure grown.
His weight gain was unsightly,
But now he's left,
His stature's grown.

We view Elvis
These days as iconography
(Grow, grow grow)
Press fueled the hagiography
Through the years
Fan, I swill canned sweet Blue Ribbon,
Fat on beer.

Thanks for doing this, so I can get it out of my head, where it has been bouncing around looking for fruition for 2 years. This is way better than I could have done it. High 5's, JB

wondrous the iconography / hagiography rhyme

So funny! Perhaps your best (of five!) today... just the image alone (slyconography?) of "Blue Elvis, Thrombosed" was worth the $555.00 price of admission!
