This was one of Elvis' wildest rockers of the '50s, a frantic, noisy, lightning-fast song that would make Little Richard proud. The song opens in full instrumentation, as if you'd switched over to it in the middle of the song, the piano, guitars, and background voices already cranking out at full speed. A few bars into it, Elvis comes in with a shout, "Hey baby!" and you already know it's a classic! Now that he's got your attention, he gets to the main point: |
Hey baby, I ain't askin' much o' you
No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, baby, I ain't askin' much o' you
Just a big-a big-a big-a hunk o' love... will do!
