Fire Your Sixguns, Elvis

Jesus marched with Elvis
and Martin Luther King
they hit some bars and crashed their cars
and kissed each others' rings

they ran into Muhammad
somewhere out in space
they didn't recognize him
'cuz they could not see his face

it was then that they decided
one for all and all for one
they headed off to Tulsa
and took to wearing guns

(chorus)
fire your sixguns, Elvis
Jesus, please take aim
MLK's at the barricade
Muhammad stopped the train
fire your sixguns, Elvis
who cares what you shoot next?
fire your sixguns, Elvis
you always were the best

the boys, they acted up sometimes
and really trashed the town
no sense in building it again
they'd only burn it down

they knew they held such power
the four of them combined
that they could run the universe
a perk of the divine

(chorus)
fire your sixguns, Elvis
Jesus, please take aim
MLK's at the barricade
Muhammad stopped the train
fire your sixguns, Elvis
who cares what you shoot next?
fire your sixguns, Elvis
you always were the best

but Elvis, he got homesick
back to Tupelo he went
and MLK said goodbye too
claimed he had to pay his rent

Jesus looked at Muhammad
so sly behind his veil
they drank away eternity
'till they sobered up in hell

(chorus)
fire your sixguns, Elvis
Jesus, please take aim
MLK's at the barricade
Muhammad stopped the train
fire your sixguns, Elvis
who cares what you shoot next?
fire your sixguns, Elvis
you always were the best
