Lyrics
Elvis in Deutschland

The sky was so clear, it was a beautiful day
The King did arrive in such a glamorous way
Women ravin’ wavin’ hands in the air, oh yea
Men were cheerin’, children started to stare

The King told the crowd he was the luckiest guy
He’d finally come through to the European side
A navy band got ready and started to play, he-hey
Another song from those mighty glorious days

Oh boy, did he look good in green!
Oh boy, did he did he look good in green!
Oh boy!

This sunny afternoon
He sleeps his Saturday away
Locked in his room

These were the days of peace and joy in our hearts
No Major Tom was to be seen in the charts
No Sgt Pepper was playin’ around in your home, oh no
Just Colonel Parker countin’ the money alone

But boy, did he look good in green!
Oh boy, did he did he look good in green!
Oh boy!

This sunny afternoon
He sleeps his Saturday away
Locked in his room
And boy, he don’t have many friends
But one is good enough to know
When you’re alone
So alone

The King told the crowd he was a fortunate guy
He thanked them and smiled and made all the girls break down and cry
Cos they all know that this was the bitter end, oh yea
That things would never be quite the same again

Oh boy, did he look good in green!
Oh boy, did he did he look good in green!
Oh boy!

This sunny afternoon
He sleeps his Saturday away
Locked in his room
And boy, he don’t have many friends
But one is all you need to know
When you’re alone
So alone
