(Perf. Elvis Presley)


(Jerry Leiber - Mike Stoller)

    King Creole !

1. There's a man in New Orleans who plays rock and roll,
     he's a guitar man with a great big soul.
     He lays down a beat like a ton of coal,
     he goes by the name of King Creole.
 
You know he's gone, gone, gone, jumpin' like a catfish on a pole.
You know he's gone, gone, gone, hip-shaking King Creole.
 
2. When the king starts to do it, it's as good as done,
    he holds his guitarlike a tommy gun.
    He starts to growl from way down his throat,
    he bends a string and "That's all she wrote".

You know he's gone, gone, gone, jumpin' like a catfish on a pole.
You know he's gone, gone, gone, hip-shaking King Creole.

3.    Well, he sings a song about a crowded hole,
    he sings a song about a jelly roll.               
    He sings a song about pork and greens,
    he sings some blues about New Orleans.

You know he's gone, gone, gone, jumpin' like a catfish on a pole.
You know he's gone, gone, gone, hip-shaking King Creole.
 
4.    Well, he plays something evil, then he plays something sweet,
    no matter what he plays, you got to get up on your feet.
    When he gets the rockin' fever, baby, heaven shakes,
    he don't stop playin` till his guitar breaks.

You know he's gone, gone, gone, jumpin' like a catfish on a pole.
You know he's gone, gone, gone, hip-shaking King Creole.

    You know he's gone, gone, gone, hip-shaking King Creole.
