Song Lyrics:
(Prologue)

This is the city: Memphis, Tennessee.
The year: 1970.
The time: 10:18 pm.

My partner and I had just received a call.
We did, didn't we? (We did what?)
We did get a call. (Yeah, there was a call.)

The time now had gotten up to almost 10:19.
(What about the call?)
It was Jack Anderson, the famous columnist. The news
flash had just come in.
He thought we oughtta know. (Oughtta know what?)

In a White House ceremony, President Richard M. Nixon had deputized Elvis as an Agent-at-large for the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.
Time: 10:20. (Ten-twenty what?)
A.M.

My partner and I wondered why Jack thought _we_
ought to know.

(The year: 1977. News bulletin: Elvis dies. Suspected cause: drug overdose.)
I can't. (You can't what?)
I can't swallow that. (How could that be? Probably media hype, huh?)
Yeah. Just doesn't sound right to me.

My partner and I were detectives.
We should be able to put two and two together.

...

Who's that comin' through the park
Dressed in rhinestones after dark?
Lookin' way too fat to be a cop
Keepin' Memphis clean
From his long black limousine
Fightin' crime with fast karate chops

Oh, now Elvis was a narc
In rhinestones after dark
He did his best to keep Memphis drug-free
He knew every pill he'd eat
Would be one less on the street
Elvis took 'em all for you and me

Now I still can't believe
That The King would have OD'd
He couldn't have done the drugs they say he did
And even though he's DOA
I still hear people say
That he's got 'em all out at Graceland, somewhere hid

Oh-whoa-whoa
Elvis was a narc
In rhinestones after dark
He did his best to keep Memphis drug-free
He knew every pill he'd eat
Would be one less on the street
Elvis took 'em all for you and me
(Backwoods)
