Original Version

The sky was clear
It was a beautiful day
The King arrived in such a glamorous way
Women raving waving hands in the air
Men were cheering, children started to stare
The King he said he was the luckiest
He finally made it to the European side
Then the orchestra got ready to play
Another song from the Glorious Days

Oh boy, did he look good in green!
Oh boy, did he did he look good in green!
Oh boy!

Hey! Let’s celebrate
The nation’s joining in (I’ll tell you all about it)
Hey! Let’s party on
The whole world’s joining in

These were the days of peace in our hearts
No Major Tom was to be seen in the charts
No Sergeant Pepper was found in your home
Just Colonel Parker counting money alone
The King he said he was a fortunate guy
Then he smiled and made every girl cry
Cos they all knew that this was the end
That things would never be quite the same again

Oh boy, did he look good in green!
Oh boy, did he did he look good in green!
Oh boy!

Hey! Let’s celebrate
The nation’s joining in (I’ll tell you all about it)
Hey! Let’s party on
The whole world’s joining in
With Elvis
