Manic Street Preachers Elvis Impersonator: Blackpool Pier Lyrics

(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Overweight and out of date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Overweight and out of date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 fucking funny, don't you know
Is so fucking 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 fucking funny, it's absurd
It's so fucking 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])
