Now what were the chances?
A wink and an invite from Elvis
I was dreaming of a pink Cadilac
OK, it is not always about me
I had already lost a girlfriend
To a Rock and Roll fame singer
The Wailers, Rockin Robin,Louie lui!
Had a show on our college campus
The Band was looking for one night dates
My girlfriend jumped at the chance
I was crushed thought we were forever
It was football season I played basketball
Looking for love in all the wrong places
The time it takes to heal a broken heart
OK, the first pretty face a start
This pretty girl the heartbreak replaces
Though I knew her our first real date
Below the Monorail I did wait
There She was a stunning beauty
Yet my self confidence was destroyed
Another broken heart I must avoid
I couldn't believe she was for me
Yet she held my hand looked inside you see
It would be an easy story if that was all I wrote
A man stepped forward handed her a note
Elvis is doing a movie
"Meet Me at the Worlds fair"
Fifty buck pretty lady lineup over there
Ok, I a total Elvis fan just a spare
Watch the movie you can see us in the shadows
He would like to use you as an extra in one scene
Fifty bucks was allot of money in the sixties
"Only if my boyfriend is in it too."
Turned out they only wanted pretty girls
We were holding hands in the background
Elvis was holding a little Chinese girl top of Elevator
His bodyguard came handed my girl a note
Of girls screaming, "Elvis would like to take you to dinner"
"How vain can't he see I am with my boyfriend?"
That surely meant allot for me don't you see
I guess she was not into athletes
The more studious types tee hee hee!
It has been 55 years that love found me
Two children, five Grandchildren and a wonderful wife
Do I miss my fiance? The rocker dropped her the next day!
Not near the beauty that found me that day
I'da gone to dinner with Elvis if I could bring Shari!
But then that is just me
