Story

This is the title song from Elvis Presley's movie about salmon trolling. They called him The King because he was so into king salmon fishing.

Elvis used to fish out of Elfin Cove just like I do... then he was drafted and they sent him to Germany. But Elvis took that opportunity to make a salmon fishing film in Norway with director Ingmar Bergman.... he never spent much time in Germany... but then Elvis' manager Colonel Parker put the kibosh on the project. He knew it wasn't a money maker (wish I had figured that out earlier too).

Some of the songs from Feeding Frenzy were rewritten... another king salmon song "I'll Have a Blue Hoochie for Breakfast" became "I'll have a Blue Christmas Without You."

"I'll have a blue hoochie for breakfast. Doesn't have to be a new hoochie, I'm reckless.... oh I ain't got no use for your green or chartreuse, but I'll have a blue, blue, blue blue, hoochie."
