[Chorus:]
Calling Elvis, is anybody home
Calling Elvis, I'm here all alone
Did he leave the building
Or can he come to the phone
Calling Elvis, I'm here all alone

Well tell him I was calling just to wish him well
Let me leave my number, heartbreak hotel
Oh love me tender, baby don't be cruel
Return to sender, treat me like a fool

[Chorus]

Why don't you go get him, I'm his biggest fan
You gotta tell him, he's still the man
Long distance baby, so far from home
Don't you think maybe you could put him on

Well tell him I was calling just to wish him well
Let me leave my number, heartbreak hotel
Oh love me tender, baby don't be cruel
Return to sender, treat me like a fool

[Chorus]
