Memphis In Your Mind

This song is by Ringo Starr and appears on the album Ringo Rama (2003) and on the album Ringo Starr:Live At Soundstage (2007).

One, two, three, four

A cat has nine lives
But man, you don't live twice
You can play for a price
With your granddaddy's dice

If you wanna be the king
You gotta go to Memphis in your mind

It's a bad point of view
If Pat Boone got through to you
Well, I kissed Peggy Sue
And you could have too

Ain't that a shame
You never went to Memphis in your mind

There's no place cooler
When you've got your Bop-A-Lula on (Mercy)
Slip into your blue suede shoes
We're dancing 'til the break of dawn

Sun Records will be playing
You'll know every word they're saying's true
Heartbreak Hotel is taking reservations
There's a room for you

You can go to any town
Get up but not get down
If you wanna hear that rocket sound
You go to Memphis in your mind

There's no place cooler
When you've got your Bop-A-Lula on (Mercy)
Slip into your blue suede shoes
We're dancing 'til the break of dawn

Sun Records will be playing
You'll know every word they're saying's true
Heartbreak Hotel is taking reservations
There's a room for you

You can have two left feet
And you can still keep the beat
If you're sixteen and sweet
Or you can't leave your seat

If you wanna meet the king
You gotta go to Memphis in your mind (Mercy)
We can all be king
So go to Memphis in your mind

Sounds nothing like Elvis to me.
