The Lyrics

In lavish Las Vegas, folks gamble tonight
No thought of the money they squander
Roulette wheels rolling, slots spin and excite
While home in Ohio I wonder
How spirits like his choose to play
He's out there, somewhere, in some way..

I Wonder What The King Is Doing Tonight
I'm wondering where he's Blue Suede Shoeing tonight
Is he all dressed in black, or wearing regal white?
I Wonder What The King Is Doing tonight
As he steps from the back of... his limo Cadillac of
Gold,...beside a blonde up there beyond the moons

I wonder what the King is singing tonight,
What tunes, what tunes...

He might do "Loving You" or, "Love Me Tender"
Then, fade into "Return To Sender"
And after that "Always On My Mind"
Fine !

Perhaps he'll sing, "Peace In The Valley"
Or bust out rockin' "Long Tall Sally"
Following with "Are You Lonesome Tonight"
Right !

Angels in the crowd will hear him sing
Black hair shining, hips still swiveling
Tossing out his snow white scarves for souvenoirs,
Cheers !

I wonder who the King is kissing tonight
Which feminine Angel fan is in his spotlight
In his high collared jump suit, sequined and white
He bends down low to kiss, his wings sparkle bright
A brow of perspiration reflecting inspiration,
He must feel about this concert in the sky !

And here is what the King is feeling tonight
He's proud ! He shakes !
He makes earthquakes !
Yes,, this is What the King is..doing...tonight !
