Elvis Presley - Little Sister




"Little Sister" is a rock and roll song written by Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman. It was originally released as a single in 1961 by American singer Elvis Presley, who enjoyed a No. 5 hit with it on the Billboard Hot 100. The single (as a double A-side with "(Marie's the Name) His Latest Flame") also reached No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart. Lead guitar was played by Hank Garland, with backing vocals by the Jordanaires featuring the distinctive bass voice of Ray Walker. Presley performs the song as part of a medley with "Get Back" in the 1970 rockumentary film Elvis: That's the Way It Is. The song would later be covered by such artists as Dwight Yoakam, Robert Plant, The Nighthawks, The Staggers, Pearl Jam, and Ry Cooder. Cooder's version was a number-one hit in New Zealand.







Lyrics


Little sister, don't you Little sister, don't you Little sister, don't you kiss me once or twice Then say it's very nice And then you run Little sister, don't you Do what your big sister done Well, I dated your big sister And took her to a show I went for some candy Along came Jim Dandy And they snuck right out of the door Little sister, don't you Little sister, don't you Little sister, don't you kiss me once or twice Then say it's very nice And then you run Little sister, don't you Do what your big sister done Ev'ry time I see your sister Well she's got somebody new She's mean and she's evil Like that old Boll Weevil Guess I'll try my luck with you Little sister, don't you Little sister, don't you Little sister, don't you kiss me once or twice Then say it's very nice And then you run Little sister, don't you Do what your big sister done Well, I used to pull your pigtails And pinch your turned-up nose But you been a growin' And baby, it's been showin' From your head down to your toes Little sister, don't you Little sister, don't you Little sister, don't you kiss me once or twice Then say it's very nice And then you run Little sister, don't you Do what your big sister done
