Elvis Meets Shirley Bassey in “The Lady from Tiger Bay”

[youtube NKSDqalBdD0]

Okay so did Elvis Presley really hook up with Dame Shirley Bassey?

Well, inspired by the tale that Shirley tells in several interviews, I wrote, sang and composed this cool 60’s-esque song called “Lady From Tiger Bay” in honor of Dame Shirley, my favorite female vocalist of all time and the King, Elvis Presley, my personal idol, hero, inspiration, and mentor infinitum.

Here’s what Dame Shirley actually says about it the meeting with Elvis;

Anyway, I wrote the song from the point of view of Elvis.  I mean this is what he must have said to Shirley that brilliant hot night.  She’s such a lady!  Do you think she would actually tell us what the King really said and what they really shared that dry warm desert evening? Hum? I don’t think so. But Elvis?  Come on!  How could the King resist seducing the amazing Goldfinger songstress?  That would be music blasphemy.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy my interpretation of this magical mythical event in music history and forever honor both of these amazing artists like I do.  Here’s to Dame Shirley and Great Elvis Presley!

LYRICS-Lady From Tiger Bay by Johnny Punish

I am man of distinction
And I’m a big spender too
I’m gonna really make you want me
cause love me tender dreams come true

There’s something in the way you show me
When I hear your lovely voice
It’s that emotion that just kills me
I guess I really have no choice

cause you’re the….
The lady from tiger bay
I really want you to stay….
Cause I can’t help falling for you
There’s nothing I would rather do
Cause you’re the…
lady from Tiger Bay

They say that diamonds are forever
So don’t be cruel just understand
It may be I who have nothin’
But tonite I’ll be your man

Who put that gold on your finger?
Give me his name I’ll make a noise
I’ll take him down to the alley
I guess I really have no choice

Cause you’re the Lady from Tiger Bay
I really want you to stay
Cause I can’t help falling for you
Tell me what I gotta to do
Cause your the lady from Tiger Bay

Suspicious minds make me wonder
If I should touch your sexy skin
I really want write my name on
That part of you that lets me in

Little sister can you feel me
I am the King just hear my voice
There ain’t no return to sender
I guess you really have no choice

cause you’re the Lady from Tiger Bay
I really want you to stay
Cause I can’t help falling for you
You know there’s nothing we can do

Cause you’re the Lady from Tiger Bay
It’s time for you to stay and play
Cause I can’t help falling for you
You know there’s nothing we can do

Cause your the lady from Tiger Bay
the lady from Tiger Bay
the lady from Tiger Bay
the lady from Tiger Bay
