    It can be found on several imports--I'll let someone else answer that part of your question, since right now I can only think of one for sure.

    But the poem went like this, and I believe this is verbatim:

    As I awoke this morning
    When all sweet things are born
    A robin perched on my window sill
    To greet the coming dawn
    He sang his song so sweetly
    Then paused for a momet's lull
    I gently raised the window
    And crushed his %@(#ing skull

    ...you won't forget me when I go.

    You two must be embarrassed, both showing up here wearing the same thing.

    You're welcome, Dessy. It is indeed quite funny. Anyone who hasn't heard it ought to check it out.

    Cut Me And I Bleed is the CD I have it on, but there are several others. There are some other imports similar to that one (compilations of funny and off-color stuff) that have it, one being called Elvis X-Rated, I believe. And then the ones which feature the home recordings from November 1973 in the Thompson family home, like a A Private Moment With The King, should have it.

    For me the most telling comment was the way everyone laughed, including the normaly sensible- Linda-? I thought she would have been more "cool" or laughed or chuckled. It was a funny take off on the poem but not something I would have burst my guts laughing.
    Syncophancy at it's worst.?

    jb,

    You have no sense of humor. Everything Elvis ever said was the funniest thing anyone has ever heard--just ask Charlie!

    Actually, I don't think that response from Linda was a stretch. It sounded genuine to me, and the first time I heard it, I got quite a chuckle out of it myself. He delivered it with such apparent sincerity that when the punchline came, it did come as a shock (maybe it shouldn't have, knowing Elvis). So bursting into laughter like that seems like a pretty natural response...but who knows, you could be right.

    Hey Bobby...read my redrafted mail ....like I said it is funny ...but yeah maybe If I had a car or jewellery coming I too would have laughed my *** off- actually correct that I did have a chance to live off the money of a very very rich school mate - if I was his "gofer" or "yes man" -but I choose not to.

    Thanks, Albert. (h)

    jb, you could very well be right. It doesn't seem like Linda, but who am I to say...And I guess after being around Elvis for a while, the guys did condition themselves to respond differently to certain things, so their responses may have sounded or looked like genuine reactions when they weren't. I'm with you. And much respect for not becoming Hamburger Rajiv.

    I thought it was hilarious, but then I pictured Elvis' face while telling it. He must've had that high cheekbone smirk around his face that must've grown as he neared the punch line and he only barely made it to finishing that line before bursting into that wonderful laugh of his. He could make the silliest joke hilarious, because the anticipation he himself had of people's responses would almost interfere with him being able to finish whatever it was he was telling

    I agree with you jackie...Elvis was a prankster... he would just say one word of joke and people would hilariously laughed at it ...

    so I guess it means there's trouble till the robins come

    Yes, it is funny. I like robins though. I couldn't bear breaking a f***ing skull, but it proved Elvis had humor. He surely was a neat guy. This is a joke with the element of surprise!

    This man was something else! I was laughing my head off when I first heard it. It seems like when he laughs it's contageous, you have to laugh too. It wasn't the nicest thing to say about a robin but it was sure funny!
