"She's Not You" as written by and Doc Pomus Jerry Leiber....
Her hair is soft and her eyes are oh so blue
She's all the things a girl should be
But she's not you

She knows just how to make me laugh when I feel blue
She's ev'rything a man could want
But she's not you

And when we're dancing
It almost feels the same
I've got to stop myself from
Whisp'ring your name

She even kisses me like you used to do
And it's just breaking my heart
'Cause she's not you

And it's just breaking my heart
'Cause she's not you

And when we're dancing
It almost feels the same
I've got to stop myself from
Whisp'ring your name

She even kisses me like you used to do
And it's just breaking my heart
'Cause she's not you

And it's just breaking my heart
'Cause she's not you

    General CommentU have GOT to be kidding me! This little ditty has no comments??? OK, it's obviously about some dud that is with one female while thinking about another. Scummy lyrics, but I still love Elvis. Have NEVER understood players, although I do believe they usually end up alone. And rightfully so. Play on...

    General CommentLOL...she's a passing ship...one of many yearly who's good for the ego and for going down on a small penis. And no, she's not the real thing. She's second prize due to cowardness. It's a GREAT song. Makes me tingle each time I hear it. Just know that when I am with someone that way, I won't be playing it!

    General CommentWow. I just read where Elvis was born in 1935. Seems hard to believe, but I suppose only because he appeared larger than life and his music (and movies) are still with us everywhere. Cool...I love trivia.

    I heard this song on the radio this morning. To me the song's more about the singer being exactly where he needs to be. He just needs to admit that it's where he belongs; where's he's happiest, most comfortable; and feels he has the most opportunity to live the life he wishes to live. There's a freedom and a loss of dread that comes with acceptance of any kind.

    I used to view it as a very negative song, but no longer. It's not the literal meaning that's important. Kind of have to read between the lines on this one.

    Anxious to see another Elvis movie...very sappy, but cutsie and upbeat. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy on the inside, and that's a good feeling regardless if the movie won't win any awards.
