There's a Guy Works Down the Chip Shop Swears He's Elvis

Alright, the Elvis Week madness continues. First up, a song that references a liar with delusions of grandiosity by the late great Kirsty MacColl and backed by some members of Rockpile. Then, a trio of numbers about Elvis in life and in death.
