Children’s Rhyme: The Hound Dog King

A little less conversation
Keep it down you guys
No more Rubbernecking
Keep those eyes on the prize

The suspicious minds are thinking
But they don’t see the Jailhouse rock
Come on hurry up, Elvis
It’s time to pick the lock

As the prisoners broke free, he said
It’s now or never, I wish you well
If you ever need to find me
I’ll be at the Heartbreak hotel

Fueled with a burning love
The talented pup had plans
He travelled from country to country
Always finding fans

With his trusty guitar
Through the power of rock and roll
He sang his way into hearts
And was adored by one and all

That’s how a humble hound dog
Became King of all the land
Sitting on his Memphis throne
In the castle he named Graceland

Elvis Aron Presley
January 8, 1935

      1. When my kids were young my ex and I had a wide range of music we liked Big band, Motown, rock, bluegrass, jazz, folk songs etc so my kids knew all those old songs. I in return learned about punk, Indi, grunge, techno beats and early rap lol πŸ˜‚

      2. That’s a good list of genres. Similar to my upbringing.
        I don’t think my parents enjoyed anything I played and I’m guessing I’ll have trouble with what my kids play to me πŸ˜‚
        Kudos to you for keeping an open mind, and having ever evolving musical taste πŸ‘

    1. Thank you.
      That would be something 😏
      I think he moved to South America or one of the tropical island chains. Then in his later years he moved back to the US, not far from Graceland and died a few years ago πŸ˜‰
