Elvis Impersonator: Blackpool Pier - Manic Street Preachers

(Music: James Dean Bradfield/Sean Moore; Lyrics: Nicky Wire/Richey James)

20ft. high on Blackpool promenade
Fake royalty second hand sequin facade
Limited face paint and dyed black quiff
Overweight and out of date

20ft. high on Blackpool promenade
Fake royalty second hand sequin facade
Limited face paint and dyed black quiff
Overweight and out of date

Oh well

American trilogy in Lancashire Pottery
American trilogy in Lancashire Pottery
Is so f_cking funny, don't you know
Is so f_cking funny, don't you know

All American trilogy in used up cars and bottled beer
All American trilogy the futures dead, fundamentally
It's so f_cking funny, it's absurd
It's so f_cking funny, it's absurd

20ft. high on Blackpool promenade.

I wish I was in Dixie
Hooray! Hooray!
In Dixie Land, I'll take my stand
To live and die in Dixie

(Excerpt taken from the song 'Dixie' by Daniel D. Emmett [1859])
