Cue Sheet


Four ladies promenade one time and go
Back home and swing with your man
Join all your hands circle left around the land
Left allemande and weave the ring
I saw Elvis in a UFO
Swing your girl and promenade you know
I saw Elvis in a UFO
Just singing them rhythm and blues

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway
Lead right and do a right & left thru
Veer left, couples circulate
Bend the line and do your right & left thru
Slide thru, square thru 3/4 go
Swing that corner promenade you know
He's a whole lot more than a shooting star
He's a hunk a hunk a burning love


(In your best Elvis voice)
"Thank you, thank you very much"

I Saw Elvis In A UFO

[Spoken - News anchor:]
This is the evening news. Let's go now to our field reporter
Renaldo Riviera.

[Spoken - Renaldo Riviera:]
This is Renaldo Riviera on the banks of the Stinky Muddy River with Mr. R.V. Frisbee who claims to have witnessed something truly fantastic. Mr. Frisbee could you tell us what you saw?

[Spoken - R.V. Frisbee:]
Yeah, I's just hunkered down over there puttin' a stink wad on my trot line and the short hairs just stood straight out on the back of my neck and I turned around and there's this big orange thing with them purple lights on it come swoopin' over them pine trees and just hoovered over the Winnebago there. Inez run out and throwed a skillet at it and then she scissored and run back in under the hide-a-bed. 'Bout that time a little trap door opened up, little stair steps come down and this little pink baldheaded guy stuck his head out. Now I seen that movie "Clost Encounters". I just walked on over there big as Ike and
looked up in there and there he was.

[Spoken - Renaldo Riviera:]
There who was?

I saw Elvis in a U.F.O. sittin' there with Howard Hughes
I saw Elvis in a U.F.O., Jimmy Hoffa was in there, too
I saw Elvis in a U.F.O. singing them rhythm and blues
And Liberace was there and he had on a pair of Imelda Marcos' shoes

What is that, a shootin' star
Streakin' cross the heavens above?
No, it's a whole lot more than a shootin' star
It's a hunka hunka burning love

I saw the Colonel in a U.F.O., had a big smile on his face
And then he shook his head, puffed on his cigar and said
"I done booked "Elvis" out in outer space"

And then those little pink men they all jumped in
Dancin' up and down the stairs
And then they rolled their eyes, began to harmonize
And it sounded like the Jordanaires

Bop bop, bop bop, uh unh huh, bop bop bop
We got Elvis in a U.F.O.
He's too good for the human race
We got Elvis in a U.F.O.
We're going to keep him out in outer space

They got Elvis in a U.F.O.
Honey, have you heard the news?
They got Elvis in a U.F.O.
Just singing them rhythm and blues
They got Elvis in a U.F.O.

And the colonel and Howard Hughes and Jimmy Hoffa
Even Liberace's up there
He ain't never had no hit record, honey
I done had more hits than anybody, but do I get to go in a U.F.O.?
Nooo!!! Now is that fair? I'm the king of Rock and Roll! The originator!
I started the whole thing, baby, and I think it's about time I gotto go on a U.F.O.!
You better beam me up Scotty or your little pink baldheaded people done tore it with me

Lyrics by Ray Stevens.
