Let’s Get Weird: Elvis Sings About Yoga

Just came across this, a day late I admit… but, in honor of Elvis’ birthday yesterday, here’s a seriously bizarre half-witted musical scene from his ’67 film Easy Come Easy Go. He asks, “how can I even move, twistin’ like a pretzel?”.

“Yoga Is As Yoga Does”

Well, I can see that you and yoga will never do

Yoga is as yoga does, there’s no in between

You’re either with it on the ball or you’ve blown the scene
I can see it lookin’ at you, you just can’t get settled
How can I even move, twistin’ like a pretzel?

Yoga is as yoga, does there’s no in between

You’re either with it all the way
Or you’ve blown the scene
Or you’ve blown the scene

Come on, come on, untwist my legs, pull my arms a lot

How did I get so tied up in this yoga knot?
You tell me just how I can take this yoga serious
When all it ever gives to me is a pain in my posterious

Yoga is as yoga does, there’s no in between

You’re either with it all the way
Or you’ve blown the scene
Or you’ve blown the scene

Stand upside down on your head, feet against the wall

A simple yoga exercise done by one and all
Now cross your eyes and hold your breath, look just like a clown
Yoga’s sure to catch you if you come falling down

Yoga is as yoga does there’s no in between

You’re either with it all the way
Or you’ve blown the scene
Or you’ve blown the scene

Yoga is as yoga does there’s no in between

You’re either with it all the way
Or you’ve blown the scene
Or you’ve blown the scene
