Lyrics

I wanna be the king of tennessee
I wanna shake it from black and white to color TV
I wanna rock and roll in fancy cars
I wanna spend my days with Hollywood stars
Oh I wanna sing like the king
I wanna go from rags to riches too
I wanna show off my fancy blue suede shoes
I wanna feel that warm spotlight
I wanna sway my hips all through the night
Oh I wanna feel like the king

I wanna, I wanna, I wanna be
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna be
I wanna be just like
Elvis Presley

Only time will tell
only time will tell
only time tells whether a king goes to heaven or hell
And I know I've been a pretty good man
I can say I've done the best a man can
Oh, I wanna see, I wanna touch my maker's hand

I wanna, I wanna, I wanna be
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna be
I wanna be just like

I wanna, I wanna, I wanna be
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna be
I wanna be just like the king
