Remember When

Remember when
we used to sit by the radio
waiting for a voice we’d know
to sing another song;
Remember when
to the cinema we used to go
for another picture show
and sit there all night long?

Remember when
we would hear another new release
and our requests just wouldn’t cease
until it reached the top;
Remember when
we could go to Memphis, Tennessee
just hoping for a chance to see
the man who brought us rock.

Remember when
we lost the King of the whole wide world
and many tearful boys and girls
just sad and cried all night;
Remember when
we were shocked and full of disbelief
and we were filled with pain and grief,
we thought it wasn’t right.

Remember when
we knew we had to carry on for him,
keep his star from growing dim
in this world’s memory;
Remember then
how we worked to keep his name alive
so that his music would survive
for all eternity.
