Actually, in middle school, I only got a Jerry Lee in Science. But I always wanted that Elvis. My parents would’ve been so proud. Outstanding work, here. Easily deserving of a grade Daisy.
On August 16, 1977, Elvis Presley died in his sleep. 27 years later, his music is still remembered.
Though nowadays children recognize the figure only as a grade they receive in science class, Elvis Presley was at one time a huge rock star, eclipsing even the fame of Dr. Fünke’s 100% Natural Good-Time Family-Band Solution.
On the twenty-seventh anniversary of his passing, local residents remembered Elvis and their favorite song.
So then I dropped it in the mailbox
And sent it special D.
But in early next morning
it came right back to me.
-- Return To Sender
You know someone said that the world’s a stage
And each must play a part.
Fate had me playing in love you as my sweet heart.
Act one was when we met, I loved you at first glance
You read your line so cleverly and never missed a cue
Then came act two, you seemed to change and you acted strange
And why I’ll never know.

Gonna run my fingers thru your long black hair
Squeeze you tighter than a grizzly bear
Yes-sir-ee, uh, uh
I'm gonna stick like glue
Stick, because I'm
Stuck on you
-- Stuck On You
I don't wanna be a tiger
Cause tigers play too rough
I don't wanna be a lion
'Cause lions ain't the kind
you love enough.
Just wanna be, your Teddy Bear
Put a chain around my neck
and lead me anywhere
Oh let me be
Your teddy bear.
