Velvet Elvis

This song is by "Weird Al" Yankovic and appears on the album Even Worse (1988).

My life, it used to be incomplete
'Til I saw what I was looking for at a drive-in swap meet
My life it won't be the same again
Now I'm proud to say the king lives on inside my den

It's all I live for, It's all I need
My velvet Elvis... my velvet Elvis
My velvet Elvis means the world to me

Although he may not be worth much dough
He means much more to me than some old Rembrandt or Van Gogh
Check out those sideburns, there's nothing greater
You can tell that he's no velvet Elvis imitator

It's all I live for, It's all I need
My velvet Elvis... my velvet Elvis
My velvet Elvis... oh now can't you see
My velvet Elvis... my velvet Elvis
My velvet Elvis means the world to me

In my own private Graceland
In my own little shrine to the king
I don't want nothin' else
No, I don't need anything
Don't need no lava lamp
Don't need no soap on a rope
No pictures of Mexican kids with those really big eyes
Or dogs playing poker

When I'm at home watching my TV
I know the king is always looking down on me
He looks so handsome, he stands so tall
So glad he's big enough to cover up that hole in the wall

(Velvet Elvis)... he's so fuzzy
(Velvet Elvis)... he's so great
(Velvet Elvis)... never ages
(Velvet Elvis)... never puts on weight
(Velvet Elvis)... look at those rhinestones
(Velvet Elvis)... he's just so fine
(Velvet Elvis)... you can look but don't touch now
(Velvet Elvis)... 'cause he's mine all mine
