    While America gets off today
    on their King of Rock and Roll
    To me he was just another white boy
    making his fame perpetrating soul

    Elvis made it to the top
    singing "Don't Be Cruel"
    "All shook Up" and
    "Return to Sender"

    Included in this list is
    "Heartbreak Hotel"
    All written by a brother named Otis Blackwell

    In case ya didn't know

    Surely you ain’t trying to tell me that the man, the “King of Rock and Roll”
    Who once said that “all a n*gger could do for him is shine his shoes and buy his records”
    Surely you ain’t trying to say that he stole his style and music from blacks?
    Say it ain’t so
    (LOL)
    knowledge
    thanks for bringing it

    I ain't mad atcha for just tellin the truth, Brotha. We know the deal. Presley singin songs written by folks he'd never respect. Climbing to the top on our backs...ain't that the way, tho.

    Keep speaking the plain truth.
