View Full Version : Remembering Elvis

08-16-2005, 02:27 PM
Born in a shack in 35
a child was born the twin that survived
They called him Elvis why such a name?
maybe a thought this child would have power and fame,
not a power of greed or ungratefulness,
but the power of change music and dress.

Why am I different I just need to know
so open my mouth and just let it flow.
For I can do this just give it a go.
This was the begining of something so true
one man and his music of RHYTHM and BLUES
A look that was different bold and would shock
giving birth to the music of which is called rock.
Rock had a roll and so it would be
It started right then with
Elvis Presley.

The loss of his mother was so hard to bare
a young man in grief and a world that share
OH lord give him the strengh to carry on
for his life is not over but as only just begun.
Time would then pass exceptence was mine
Hit records and films all soldiered in line.

Now he is a father of a sweet baby girl
So precious a gift more precious than pearls
But life with her mother was just not to be
a separation was here he just did not see.
Life was for living and so it would be
What was held for the future could not be forseen.
For on August 16th in the year 77
God called for Elvis and took him to heaven.
You have done what I asked and now is the time
to come up to heaven and be a star that will shine
above all those people whose lives you have changed.
Elvis Presley the star that will always remain.

"I Believe" that In the "Mansion Over The Hill Top" "Where No one Stands Alone"
Elvis was "In The Garden" singing "Lead Me Guide Me" for I have his "Hand In Mine"
So Put "Put Your Hand In The Hand" and "Reach Out To Jesus"
for"This Is A Thing Called Love" and just "How Great Thou Art"

can you guys tell me what you think of this, i wrote it.

i never got to meet you,
you died before i could
i love you like every fan of yours would.

jet black hair and swivelling hips
a magnetic smile and
tender lips

he was the best thats no lie
with every preformance he made girls cry.

blue suede shoes and suspicious minds
Elvis Presley was one of a kind

we all love you and miss hearing you sing, you will always
truely be the King!
