I Believe In The Man In The Sky.

See, I think in the whole of Elvis' repertoire, he only sings that word in one song. And that song is I Believe In The Man In The Sky. You see how it works?

Keep reminding myself ... it's FECC.

Gee, I thought all those first words were all in "Yoga Is As Yoga Does"! :lol:

"Coffee Cup"? (It has to be the phrase - because there's "cup of joy" in a gospel song. But I think only one "Coffee Cup.")

Samson. Eve? ("Eve," not "evil.") Jezebel.

Oh yeah: YOGA!

Posterious. (Not a word, but in the song, it is.)

No, I'm going to go with trombone. I was thinking there's a trombone player in Dixieland Rock, but it's a cornet.

So, Trombone and Cornet.

Did you forget this one?

You'll Think Of Me
Now I know you loved me just like I wanted
I know you'd follow me across an endless sea
But baby I've got a heart that's haunted
Yeah, in your cold and empty bed, you'll think of me, oh yes
You'll think of me

I can't think of any right now, but as a side-line to this, did you know that the group Procol Harum between 1967 and 1991 produced many albums, but none of their lyrics or songs ever contained the word 'love'. That is some kind of record and was mentioned in a respected rock magazine (Mojo I think). :shock:
