lyrics

Young Dylan and Fat Elvis
on a train tour of the States
seeing the sights
meeting their subjects
getting into all sorts of predicaments.

"I'll bet you can't dance
on the head of an angel," dares Dylan.
Fat Elvis snorts,
jumps on the statuary
and does the Monkey.
"Not bad," the young 'un admits.
"Well, thankyouverymuch," the elder replies.

Back on the train for the duo
as they explore,
adventure, and
experience America.
They climb the Mountains of Poughkeepsie.
They sing in the Caves of Louisville.
They get gang-banged in Disneyland.

"I'm hungry," Elvis moans.
"Make your own damned sandwich"
is Young Dylan's only response.
Fat Elvis complies
and finds lunch to be good.

They travel the cities
visit the countryside
riding the rails.
They are everywhere at once
sighted at the most unlikely places.
Blink and you miss 'em.
Glance and they're there!
Fat Elvis and Young Dylan
are all things to all people
as tourists often are.

They have a good time
on their journey
and when,
at quest's end,
they call it quits
it is with a sense of accomplishment
and purpose completed.

Their tickets punched
and the tour resolved
Fat Elvis and Young Dylan
go about the business
of shedding their skins.
