1 "I am sick of all this talk. Elvis, Elvis, Elvis. That is all you talk about," Sam said.
2 "I have lived in this house for a long time," Sara said. "I know he was a king!"
3 Sam and Sara kept arguing. Sam and Sara are spiders. They live in the attic of Graceland. Graceland was Elvis Presley's home.
4 "Whatever," Sam said. "I have seen him in films. He did not wear a crown. He was not a king."
5 "He did not have to wear a crown," Sara said. "He was not the king of a country. He was the king of rock and roll."
6 "What on earth is rock and roll?" Sam asked.
7 "Don't be silly," Sara said. She added another line to her web. "Rock and roll is a kind of music. It is a little bit of gospel. It has some country in it. It has some blues in it, too."
8 "Well, that sounds like a mixed-up mess," Sam said.
9 Sara gave Sam an angry look.
