Samuel’s Bright Earth Hour Hallucinations

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

March 31st, 2008 at 01:11am

This week’s award goes to Alannah Myles and the feature song is Black Velvet, a song apparently about Elvis Presley.

Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers on the Victrola up high
Mama’s dancin’ with baby on her shoulder
The sun is settin’ like molasses in the sky
The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything
Always wanting more, he’d leave you longing for

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Up in Memphis the music’s like a heatwave
White lightening, bound to drive you wild
Mama’s baby is in the heart of every school girl
“Love me tender” leaves ’em cryin’ in the aisle
The way he moved, it was a sin, so sweet and true
Always wanting more, he’d leave you longing for

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Every word of every song that he sang was for you
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon, what could you do?

(Guitar Solo)

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

If you please, if you please, if you please

Samuel

    It is a sexy, sultry song.
    Hmmm…. Now where is my missus?

    I’ve really got to thank you, Sambo.
    This song really got me in the mood – and the wife was more than obliging. O Happy Day!

    The somewhat alarming thing is that I have you to thank for my sex life?!?
