    It Hurts Me -parody

    saw this and just wondered if it was true and if so do you know who wrote the new lyrics and who had the idea here is the story as i read it
    Elvis and the production team organized a party for Colonel Tom Parker.
    It is well-known that the Colonel wanted Elvis to sing one or more Christmas songs
    in the special, therefore at this party Elvis sung a parody of the song "It Hurts Me"
    with lyrics written especially for the Colonel.

    It hurts me to see the budget climb up to the sky
    It hurts me ,when Finkle gives me trouble
    When i see al my money go,just for one god-damed old t.v show
    It hurts me ,the way Finkel spends my dough
    The whoe town is talking, they're calling me a fool
    For listening to Binder's same old lies
    Finkel calls me ,says i;ve got no choice
    Then hangs up the phone in that damed rolls royce
    It hurts me,when my tears start to flow
    They promised me sure,if i would give in
    That i would-that i would
    Never go wrong
    But tell me the truh
    Is it too much to ask
    For one lousy,tired old christmas song?

    I'm so sorry that this hadn't been recorded.
    When I remember the Colonel's "love" () for Steve Binder I think he really liked the lyrics
    "If you're an Elvis fan, no explanation is necessary; If you're not an Elvis fan, no explanation is possible.

    Would have loved to see the look on everyones faces in the room that day and the reactions it got from this.You know that Elvis made sure it sounded funny.

    There are actually pictures in the galleries here of Elvis singing that parody to Parker. No audio has ever surfaced, though.
