All joking aside, I think it was just an innocent time in (American) history. Elvis had just made his television debut on the Ed Sullivan show a year earlier, and America was in love with all things Elvis. Within the next few years, so many songs and movies were produced (including Jailhouse Rock) that I suspect the songwriters were putting stuff out there as fast as they could to fulfill demand for movie soundtracks without putting too much thought into it. I seriously doubt there was any ulterior motive from any songwriter, or any meaning intended other than "Hey! Let's everybody love Elvis!" so the music and film industry could make a profit.

I still think it's funny, though, and in my entire life I've never heard anyone else draw attention to those lyrics, so I guess it's just my satirical mind at work: always looking for a laugh. :lol:
