She woke up one night from sleepin’

Two years old in fifty six

Her hands started clappin’

Feet baby dancingwere tappin’

Baby wasn’t fakin’

Her crib was a shakin’

cause

Daddy loved to rocked CBS

Momma did the Stroll

T.V. set was tuned

To the Sullivan show

Daddy loved to rock

Momma did the Stroll

Baby got her first dance lesson

From the King of Rock and Rolla bndst poster dick

The years flew by the kid turned thirteen

Made it on The American Bandstand show

The beat romanced her

How she loved to dance

Baby wasn’t fakin’

The floor was a shakin’

cause

How she cried

On that sad and lonely August night

When she heard her old hound dog slipped away

Baby wasn’t fakin’

Her hips started shakin’

Thinkin’ bout those memories

Forever deep inside

When

When her momma loved to do the Stroll

When the TV set was on

Tuned to the Ed Sullivan showelvis dancing

When Daddy loved to rock

When her momma loved to do the Stroll

From The King of Rock and Roll

Baby got her first dance lesson

From the King of Rock and Roll

Baby got her first dance lesson

Note:

Elvis became my first  musical influence and rock & roll idol the when I saw his photo on the front page of the Detroit News in 1956. I was  6 years old. Elvis made his first appeaarance on  the Ed Sullivan Show on September 9th 1956.

We were in the kitchen in my grandmother’s house in Hamtramch MI. When I saw his long sideburns on his photo in the paper, I exclaimed to my mother, uncle Richie and Babci  “I want sideburns just like Elvis.” (bob’-chee’, is how we addressed our grandmother).

Later in life, I  drove a Lorraine taxi cab in Dearborn MI (the Ford Motor town) in 1975 through 1977. I remember one night taking a  middle aged woman to Olympia Stadium in Detroit.  I asked her why she was so  excited. She comment “Don’t you know, Elvis is playing.  I wouldn’t miss this for anything.  I ‘ve been following him for years!” As we got close to the stadium, I experienced the euphoria as I saw ELVIS PRESLEY lit up on the marquee on the building. The whole area was packed with cars,  people and filled with excitement!

Pursuing my musical career I joined a show band who’s singer did a 1950’s oldies show, and an Elvis Presley tribute.  While setting up my keyboard at a practice session one warm August evening,  JD the singer came in and announced that Elvis had passed. That was August 16th 1977. Coincidently, if you look at the copyright date of this song lyric, ironically it is dated August 16th 2005.
