Album Notes
Why 'Elvis Orbison'? Well, for starters, it just called out to me. I was reading one of John Lennon's final interviews and "all through the taping of 'Starting Over,' (he) was calling what (he) was doing 'Elvis Orbison'. My ears just perked up when I said it aloud. I'm such a huge Beatles fan. My dad is Elvis Presley's #1 fan and my mom was the biggest Roy Orbison fan. So there was this built in connection and suddenly, after weeks of hemming and hawing, the name game rat race finally had context. On a purely primal level, I also just really like the way it 'sounds' as it rolls off the tongue. And it occurred to me that even for the disapproving ones, it's still a name that is somewhat unforgettable. Given that we're pretty much starting from rung A, it might be helpful to have a name that stands apart to get past the first set of ropes. But aside from this bit of Jagger-esque business school posturing, we'll just let the music do the talking.

you've got all that mojo
from your mama
in your hip blue jeans
and when you troll down the alley
no one cares and noone ever sees
that you're the one to beat

you don't shimmy
and I've never seen you shake it up
a white girl in a thai town ghetto
you're the kind of girl
that just might get me fired
you are so fucked up but

you're the s#!t 2 me

doo doo doo

and I know it sounds foolish
but I really get the feeling
we were meant to be
that's what my last girl told me
we can grow real old
get hitched and raise a family

i've got a little money
for my honey
in my crack blue jeans
and if ya wanna
we can kick it in the jungle
for a rumble
grow some pot
and suck a little green tea
and make history

you're the s#!t 2 me
