COME ON (LET'S GO TONIGHT)

Home demo


Hey little girl with the red dress on
There's a party tonight down in Memphis town
I'm going down there if you need a ride
Come on, come on, let's go tonight

How many men have found their dreams denied
Well they walk down the street with death in their eyes
And now the man on the radio says Elvis Presley died
Come on, come on, let's go tonight

Ha ha ha...

Well now some came to witness and some came to weep
They stood together as they waited outside the gates ??? in the heat
Brought together forever in the promise of an endless sleep
Come on, come on, let's go

Hey little girl with the red dress on
I wanna dance, I wanna dance, I wanna dance
Whoa! Whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whoa whoa!
Whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whoa whoa!
