Dead like Elvis
Check check, 1 2, check
U know what he sayin'?
Face down
Dead like Elvis
Face down
Dead like Elvis

Somebody once told him that he wouldn't take Prince thru the ringer
Let him go down as a washed-up singer
Ain't that a bitch?
Thinkin' all along that he wanted 2 B rich
Never respected the root of all evil & he still don't 2 this day
Huh
Bury him face down
Let the motherfuckers kiss a ass
OK?

Face down
Dead like Elvis
Face down, uh
Dead like Elvis

Told them he wanted 2 sing a song about a black child goin' buck wild
& they just laughed N his face
Talk 2 ur lawyer but U got no case
What U need 2 do is keep ur place
Next time U pull a card
It better B an ace motherfucker or U can lay...

Face down
Mm, 1 2
Dead like Elvis
Face down
Mm, 1 2 (Dead like Elvis)
Horn
Horn
Bass
Bass
Mm

Him & her meaning who 'm singin' about
& a psychoanalyst kinda saw the catalyst
As the devil with the blue jeans on, huh
Ain't it kinda funny when U C the dawn?
Sign the name they gave ya
But when them motherfuckers turn around ass up, U'r what?

Face down
Ooh-ow, mm, 1 2 (Dead like Elvis)
Face down, huh
New Power Generation N the house (Dead like Elvis)
& bury 'em all (Face down)
Yes, oh Lord (Dead... like Elvis)
Face down
Mmmm
Dead like Elvis
Orchestra
Orchestra
Orchestra
Face down
Dead like Elvis
Orchestra
Face down
Dead...

It's N his will, read it
He shot 2 kill, he said it
4 those who know the number & don't call
Hmph, fuck all y'all

Face down
Dead... like Elvis
Face down
Dead... like Elvis
Face down
