"Blue Suede Shoes" as written by Charles E. Calhoun and Lou Willie Turner....
Well, it's one for the money
Two for the show
Three to get ready
Now go, cat, go

But don't you
Step on my blue suede shoes
Well you can do anything
But stay off of my blue suede shoes

Well, you can knock me down
Step in my face
Slander my name all over the place
Well do anything that you want to do
But uh-uh, honey lay off of them shoes

And don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Well, you can do anything
But stay off of my blue suede shoes

Let's go, cat!
Ah, walk the dog

You can burn my house
Steal my car
Drink my liquor
From an old fruit jar
Well do anything that you want to do
But uh-uh, honey lay off of my shoes

And don't you
Step on my blue suede shoes
Well, you can do anything
But stay off of my blue suede shoes

Rock it
Yeah

Well, it's one for the money
Two for the show
Three to get ready
Now go, go, go!

But don't you
Step on my blue suede shoes
Well, you can do anything
But stay off of my blue suede shoes

Well, it's
Blue, blue
Blue suede shoes
Blue, blue
Blue suede shoes, yeah!
Blue, blue
Blue, suede shoes, baby
Blue, blue
Blue suede shoes
Well, you can do anything
But stay off of my blue suede shoes

    General CommentThis is acutally a Carl Perkins song. Perkins did it good but I think Elvis did it better. Like a lot of songs Elvis covered he sped them up and added a degree of wildness to them. That's what I like about his version of Blue Suede Shoes.

    General CommentPuportedly inspired by a guy Carl Perkins was in the army with who, when they were getting ready for a night out would say "don't step on my blue suede shoes" even though he was going out in standard issue boots like everyone else.

    General CommentThis is 1 of the first rock n roll songs ever recorded. First done by Carl Perkins, then Elvis, then the Beatles, Johnny Cash, and followed by 6 others.

    The first 2 lines are based on a classic children's rhyme. Elvis recorded his version of this song in 1956, waiting until his friend Perkins' version had left the charts.

    General CommentReportedly, the writer of this song was astonished to see a man reaction when his beautiful girlfriend stepped on his blue sued shoes on dancing floor. He was puzzled how can a man let his girl down before others just because she stepped on his shows.

    Love this song- Elvis Version !

    General CommentNever really liked this Elvis song (and I like many). First off, what woman would be seen with a man wearing blue shoes who values his shoes more than all else? Such a silly song and unfortunately it reminds me of those powder blue leizure suits and the guys who used to ask me to dance just before running their paws down over my big butt. Ick.
