He Was The King / Lui era il Re

The last time I saw Elvis
He was shootin' at a color TV
The phones were ringin' in the Pink Motel
And the rest is history
He was the King

The last time I saw Elvis
He was singin' a gospel song
You could tell he had the feelin'
And the whole world sang along
He was the King
He was the King

The last time I saw Elvis
He was up on the silver screen
Pushin' a plow in a black and white movie
And everybody started to scream
He was the King

The last time I saw Elvis
It was some kind of Vegas dream
Spotlights flashed on a silver cape
And a blue haired lady screamed
He was the King

The last time I saw Elvis
He was frontin' a three piece band
Rockin' on the back of a flatbed truck
With an old guitar in his hand
He was the King

The last time I saw Elvis
He was ridin' in a pink Cadillac
Wind was blowin' through his hair
And he never did look back
He was the King

Thank you very much

L'ultima volta che vidi Elvis
Sparava a una televisione a colori
I telefoni suonavano al Pink Motel
E il resto è storia
Lui era il Re

L'ultima volta che vidi Elvis
Stava cantando una canzone gospel
Lo vedevi che aveva il feeling
E il mondo intero cantava
Lui era il Re
Lui era il Re

L'ultima volta che vidi Elvis
Era lassù sullo schermo d'argento
Che spingeva un aratro in un film in bianconero
E tutti iniziarono a urlare
Lui era il Re

L'ultima volta che vidi Elvis
Era una specie di sogno di Las Vegas
I riflettori illuminavano una mantella d'argento
E una ragazza dai capelli blu urlava
Lui era il Re

L'ultima volta che vidi Elvis
Era a capo di un trio
Che rockeggiava sul cassone di un camion
Con una vecchia chitarra in mano
Lui era il Re

L'ultima volta che vidi Elvis
Guidava una Cadillac rosa
Il vento gli soffiava tra i capelli
E non guardava mai indietro
Lui era il Re

Grazie mille
