George Michael - John & Elvis Are Dead

Close friend of mine as a child fell into a slumber
No sign of life since '75
Then one day he just, what do you know
I guess God just called his number

He called me up he called me up and said

I'm thinking about asking the doctor
If he could put me back to sleep
Then he laughed and said

Don't they know just what their mothers
Paid in blood, and tears to change

But the words that made me cry
The thing he softly said
It stayed with me, it keeps messing with my head
He said,
Then how come John & Elvis are dead?

Youth, beautiful youth
We walked through the walls until we found the truth
And said
Everyone we used to know
Must have given up, so long ago
You can see it, it's written on their faces
And the inside of their clothes


But the words that made me cry
'Cos I knew just what they meant
He turned to me and said

Then how come John & Elvis are dead?


Then how come Marvin & Elvis are dead?

I said
How come peace, love and Elvis are dead?
