Just Like New

     
 

That's the same engine under the hood
Carried young Elvis to Hollywood
Been cross country a time or two
And look at it now, it's just like new
He had a weakness for Cadillacs
A girl in the front and his friends in the back
That's the original paint job, too
Look at it now, it's just like new

Elvis was happy, he felt pretty good
Here he was driving to Hollywood
Gassing it up and pushing it through
Look at it now, it's just like new
According to one of Elvis' friends
He took it up to a hundred-and-ten
He just want to see what his Caddy would do
Look at it now, it's just like new

And my, my, what a beautiful machine
Oh boy, it rides just like a dream
Just think of all that it's been through
And look at it now, it's just like new

He drove it to Memphis come Christmas time
The weather so fair, the future so fine
Say Mama, them girls ain't as pretty as you
Look at her, Daddy, she's just like new
Elvis was always a dutiful child
And here everybody was thinking he's wild
Why, he bought his folks a Cadillac, too
And look at it now, it's just like new
