This is the evening news. Let's go now to our field reporter, Renaldo Riviera.
This is Renaldo Riviera on the banks of the Stinky Muddy River with Mr. RV Frisbee,
who claims to have witnessed something truly fantastic. Mr. Frisbee, could you tell
us what you saw?
Yeah, I was just hunkered down over there putting a stink wad on my trout line and the short
hairs just stood straight out on the back a my neck and I turned around and there's this
big orange thing with them purple lights come swoopin over them pine trees 'n just hoovered
over the Winnebego there. Inea's run out and threw a skillet at it then she scissored and
run back in under the hide-a-bed. 'Bout that time little trap door opened up, little stair
steps come down, and this little pink bald headed guy stuck his head out. Now's I seened
that movie "Closed Encounters." I just walked over big as life and looked up and there he was.
There who was?
I saw Elvis in a UFO, sittin there with Howard Hughes
G A A7 D
I saw Elvis in a UFO, Jimmy Hoffa was in there too
I saw Elvis in a UFO, singin them rhythm and blues
G A A7 D
And Liberachi was there, and he had on a pair of Imelda Marcos's shoes
Bm A G D
What is that, a shootin star, streakin 'cross the heavens above
Bm A G D
No it's a whole lot than a shootin star, it's a hunka-hunka burnin love
I saw the Colonel in a UFO, he had a big smile on his face
G A D
And then he shook his head, puffed on his cigar and said
I don't look devilish out in outer space
And then those little pink men they all jumped in, dancin up and down the stairs
And then they rolled their eyes, began to harmonize, and it sounded like the Jordinaires
(We got Elvis in a UFO he's too good for the human race)
Too good for the human race
G A D
(We got Elvis in a UFO, we're gonna keep him out in outer space)
Gonna keep him out in outer space
They got Elvis in a UFO, honey have you heard the news
They got Elvis in a UFO, just singin them rhythm and blues
(spoken, over verse chords)
They got Elvis in a UFO, and the Colonel and Clyde Beels
Even Liberachi's out there and he ain't never had no hit record honey
I've done had more hits than anybody, but do I get to go in a UFO no!
Now is that fair, I'm the King of Rock n Roll, the originator
I started the whole thing baby, and I think it's about time I get to go in a UFO
You better beam me up Scotty, you little pink bald-headed people done toyed with me
Whoooaaaaa (thank you!)
