-- Spoken: 
"Thank you very much ladies and gentlemen. I'd like to do this next song especially for you. And for the King." 

Well.... 
I walk up to the mike and and then I shake my hips 
I take a deep breath and put a snear on my lips 
See me on the street you wouldn't know my name 
But imitating Elvis is my claim to fame 
So when you put my imitation name in lights 
There'll be imitation good rockin' tonight 

Cuz I'm an an Elvis imitator and I just can't stop 
Imitating Elvis from the bottom to the top 
Imitate the way he talked, the way he smiled 
I throw away my scarf and make the crowd go wild 
This imitation Elvis may not be the King 
But baby I'm the next best thing 

Singing Viva Las Vegas and the G.I. Blues 
Won't you Love Me Tender in my Blue Suede Shoes 
Well let me be your teddy bear, if you must 
Oh baby Please Surrender, 'cause I need your touch 
Well if you feelin' lonely, need a place to dwell 
Come on down to imitation heartbreak hotel 

Chorus: 
We're gonna rock (rock rock rock) 
Ooooh we're gonna rock (rock rock rock) 
Ooooh we're gonna rock (rock rock rock) 
Ooooh we're gonna rock (rock rock rock) 

Yeah my gold lamee cape and my sequined suit 
Pompadou haircut and my high-heeled boots 
Imitating Elvis is the only way 
I can make it through my imitation day 
I know this rocking music can't be denied 
'Cause I was imitating him before he died 

Well I'm an an Elvis imitator and I just can't stop 
Imitating Elvis from the bottom to the top 
I imitate the way he walked, the way he smiled 
I throw away my scarf and make the crowd go wild 
This imitation Elvis may not be the king 
But baby I'm the next best thing 

Chorus: 
Yeah rock (rock rock rock) 
Ooooh we're gonna rock (rock rock rock) 
Ooooh we're gonna rock (rock rock rock) 
Ooooh we're gonna rock (rock rock rock) 

Well baby ... it's the next ... best thing 

-- Spoken: 
Thank you very much ladies and gentlemen
