Elvis Presley Lyrics Words & Music by Aaron Schroeder - Ben Weisman Elvis Presley Lyrics

Ben Weisman: 'As I look back, it seems like yesterday...in the summer of 1956 I received a call from my music publisher, Jean Aberbach to come to his office to discuss Elvis Presley, a new singer he was about to represent. He asked me to watch the 'Tommy Dorsey Television Show' on which Elvis would be performing. He said, 'Study his style'. Elvis, who had just signed with RCA, was going to be recording an album, and Aberbach wanted me to write for him'.The first song I submitted for the project was entitled 'First In Line' and Elvis recorded it!'

Although at first Ed Sullivan Elvis Presley Photos said he would never want Elvis on his show, Sullivan changed his mind when The Steve Allen Show with Elvis as a guest had about twice as many viewers as Sullivan's show that night (they were competing for the same audience since they were in the same time slot). After negotiating with Elvis' manager, Ed Sullivan paid Elvis the huge sum of $50,000 for appearing on three of his shows: September 9, 1956, October 28, 1956, and then on January 6, 1957.

Elvis' first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show was a major success. Over 60 million people, both young and old, watched the show and many people believe it helped bridge the generation gap for Elvis' acceptance into the mainstream. Elvis performed', Don't Be Cruel', Love Me Tender', Ready Teddy and 'Hound Dog'.

First in Line

When they gave out eyes like diamonds
That would shame the stars that shine
My darlin' my darlin'
You were the first in line
When they gave out lips like honey
That hold a new thrill every time
My darlin' my darlin'
You were the first in line

There may be others
that know you longer
Who pledge their hearts to you
But there's no other
could love you stronger
Any stronger than I do
Don't refuse me, say you'll choose me
I'm yours, oh please be mine
My darlin' say I'm your darlin'
The first, and the last in line

Recorded: 1956/09/03, first released on Elvis
