Happy Ending

Elvis Presley Lyrics Words & Music by Ben Weisman - Sid Wayne Elvis Presley Lyrics

Ben Weisman: 'I had just moved to Los Angeles, when I received a call from the producer of It Happened At The World's Fair to write a rousing song for the closingscene of the movie. It had to be ready overnight and recorded the next day! This was one of the rare 'Elvis' assignments without competition. Why? Because I wasthe only songwriter living in Los Angeles! So 'Happy Ending' closed the film in a marching band sequence'.

Happy Ending

Happy ending, happy ending
Give me a story with a, happy ending
When boy meets girl and then
They never part again
But live forever happily, like you and me

Our love story gets me so upset
Like Romeo, and Juliet
I'm not smart enough to figure why
Some folks enjoy, a real good cry

Happy ending, happy ending
Give me a story with a, happy ending
When boy meets girl and then
They never part again
But live forever happily, like you and me

Never thought that I would stand a chance
That you'd give me, a second glance
But I think that you can play the part
And give a guy, a happy heart

Happy ending, happy ending
Give me a story with a, happy ending
When boy meets girl and then
They never part again
But live forever happily, like you and me

When boy meets girl and then, they never part again
but live forever happily, like you and me

Like you and me, like you and me
Like you and me

Recorded: 1962/08/30, first released on It Happened At The World's Fair

October 21, Girls Girls Girls opens nationwide.

November 29, Elvis returns to Memphis and is greeted with bad news: his first nationwide tour in three years has fallen through, the result of an inability for the Colonel and RCA to come to terms on the details.

The 43-date tour would have netted Elvis one million dollars.

December 19, Having apparently made his decision, Elvis meets Priscilla at his father's house in Memphis, where she has driven in from New York City with father Vernon and stepmother Dee. Priscilla is nervous, and Elvis prescribes some sleeping pills which leave her asleep for the better part of two days.

December 25, At a private Graceland Christmas party, Elvis presents Priscilla with a toy poodle, which she promptly names Honey. Her gift to Elvis is a wooden cigar box that plays his recent hit 'Surrender'.

December 31, After fireworks at Graceland, New Year's Eve 1962 is spent at another private party.

Held this time at Memphis' Manhattan Club.
