WHO WOULD WE BE WITHOUT YOU (FOR ELVIS)

Elvis-presley

Where would we be without you?

Not where we are today

There would have been no Heartbreak Hotel

Or Highway 61, never mind revisited

No Strawberry Fields Forever

Or Penny Lane

Would we ever have been caught up on Cyprus Avenue

Or sailed up the west coast in a ship called Dignity

Would we have found ourselves Down in the Tube Station at Midnight

Would there have been a Bridge Over Troubled Waters

Or a Stairway To Heaven

And would we have been received in Graceland

Where would we be without you?

Not where we are today.

 

Who would we be without you?

Not who we are today.

Would we have been All Shook Up

Or found our Teenage Kicks

Would we have been Born To Run

Or known All You Need Is Love

Would the Times have Been A-Changing

And given us an Alternative Ulster

Would there have been cracks for the light to get in

Would our souls and spirits have ever flown Into The Mystic

Would we be pilgrims on our way

And I be someone who makes you feel beautiful

Who would we be without you?

Not who we are today.
