Elvis Presley

Elvis Presley was on stage with his hips swinging
His movements kept women from hearing his singing
He could make so much money without moving his lips
All he had to do was go on stage and gyrate those hips

    This made me smile and some.. My poor other half who has no rhythm at all, on the odd moment after a few beers has tried to move his hips just like Elvis (bless him!) An enjoyable write... Thanks I needed a lift ,,, Karen

    Awesome write and congrats on your win. Being a man, I usually don't look at his hips, but I love the man's singing ability. Quite possibly, the best male singer of all times (My apologies to and Frank Sinatra fans, but that's my opinion and I am sticking to it). Congrats............"Samual has left the building and meeting with a young thing waiting for me in the Jungle Room"........ I couldn't help myself, I love the song "Walking through Memphis".....Good Job.
