The Worth of Elvis

Don't measure a man by his bank account,
Or the cut of his tailored suit;
don't measure his worth by his fancy car,
Or the fact that the world thinks he's cute;
But measure a man by the way he acts,
And how he treats his fellow man;
Measure his worth by a kindly thought,
Or the friendly shake of his hand.

Don't measure a man by the size of his house,
Or not by the places he goes;
Don't measure his worth by the social page,
Or the things that you think he knows;
But measure a man by the friends he has,
And the way he treats them too;
Measure the feelings close to his heart,
And you'll find what he's worth to you.

Don't measure a man by the cost of his gifts,
Or how many he gives away;
Measure the good feelings you get from him,
And the smile that he sends your way;
And measure instead the warmth of his heart,
And one thing I'm certain of,
You'll find that the worth of Elvis
Can only be measured by love.
