All my lazy teenage boasts are now high precision ghosts 
And they're coming round the track to haunt me. 
When she looks at me and laughs I remind her of the facts 
I'm the king of rock 'n' roll completely 
Up from suede shoes to my baby blues 
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque 
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque 
The dream helps you forget you ain't never danced a step 
You were never fleet of foot, hippy. 
All the pathos you can keep for the children in the street 
For the vision I have had is sweeping 
New broom, this room, sweep it clean 
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque 
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque 
High kickin' dandy, fine figure fine cut a fine figure fine oh yeah ; 
Long legged candy, fine figure fine cut a fine figure fine oh yeah ; 
Now my rhythm ain't so hot, but it's the only friend I've got 
I'm the king of rock 'n' roll completely 
All the pretty birds have flown now I'm dancing on my own 
I'm the king of rock 'n' roll completely 
Up from, suede shoes to my baby blues 
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque 
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque 
High kickin' dandy, fine figure fine cut a fine figure fine oh yeah ; 
Long legged candy, fine figure fine cut a fine figure fine oh yeah ; 
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque 
Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque
