Colonel and Me

Me and the man
get along just fine
he keeps to his
and I watch mine
Sometimes we pass
as we go our way
Smile and say lovely day

And it all became clear
the night I met Elvis
He didn’t look like I thought he should
but those words in my ear
I still hear them always
A little of the colonel in them
every one.

Me and the man
got a special deal
I never blame him
when he does not feel
I don’t scratch his back
he don’t scratch mine
Everybody has a lovely time


Me and the man
don’t fight no more
Since we both forgot what we were fighting for
Seems such a shame to spoil a lovely day
I’ll just wave and be on my way
