As performed by Elvis:

I'm sending out some invitations
Gonna have me a big celebration
I'm givin' up everything that I thought was mine
If your love for him is stronger
Let's not drag it out much longer
I'm ahead if I can quit while I'm behind

I'd write a song about something real funny
If I thought somebody would laugh
I'd write a song about a whole lot of money
If I thought I could get me some cash
I'll be ahead if I can quit while I'm behind

I'll be ahead if I can quit while I'm behind

I'm Ahead If I Can Quit While I'm Behind (unreleased cover)
Written byJim Ford
