You're a little long
in the tooth, babe
Me, I'm puffy
and under the weather
But the drunker I get,
that band gets tight,
and honey, you're lookin' better

So here's to dim lights
in dingy bars,
to the alcohol haze and the smoke
and the chance
to reinvent ourselves
Hey baby, let's go for broke

And pretend I'm Elvis
for just one night
I will call you priscilla,
if that's alright
Hey don't we look sorta like em'
in the neon light?
Let's pretend I'm Elvis, darlin'
for just one night

Now it's one a.m
and we follow the band
down a dead and lonely street
Here's a song about our destiny,
how we were meant to meet
So drink up honey and wrap me in
good looks, fortune and fame
I don't need to know
who you really are
You don't need to know my name


Three more drinks
and that cab outside
will become a limo
You and me
we gotta hang on tight
to this fragile spell
But girl, it ain't easy
and I get queasy as hell
lookin' at a map
where every road leads back
to my room at the
Heartbreak Hotel

We all need God's redemption,
Tonight Graceland is a bar
And even if I don't sing too good,
or play the guitar
I think I could love you tender,
treat you like a queen,
We can work a little magic
If you'll imagine I'm the King
