The Bastard Son Of Elvis Presley

lyrics

I guess you knew that I’d show up one day
Like the first run blueprint of teenage outrage
Hey old man, I’m less than impressed
You promised me gold and it’s all gone west

Show me ambitions and show me achievements
Show me there’s still ++++ left to believe in
Tell me again about not selling out
Did those words come out of your mouth?

I’m the bastard son of Elvis Presley
17, 18, 19, 20
I’m the bastard son of Elvis Presley
Taking all the world on, if somebody lets me

I'll leave you standing and gasping for air
Watch the earth’s gravity bend in my wake
I’m sucking up the knowledge, make no mistake
If you’re looking for trouble then you’re in the right place

I’m the bastard son of Elvis Presley
17, 18, 19, 20
I’m the bastard son of Elvis Presley
Taking all the world on, if somebody lets me

Hey Joe, go with the flow; keep the line moving, nice and slow.
Take one, pass it on, enjoy the show, we’re all revved up and we’re ready to go.
The walls of this city had better watch out, once more round and they’ll be coming down
Send me a ticket to your counter-culture, speed like white light and travelling upwards
Eyes wide, all alive and into the future

I’m 0 to 100 in the blink of an eye
I can’t stand still for the rest of my life
I never explain or apologise
And the last train out leaves here tonight

I’m the bastard son of Elvis Presley
17, 18, 19, 20
I’m the bastard son of Elvis Presley
Taking all the world on, if somebody lets me
