Wear My Ring Around Your Neck

Elvis Presley Lyrics Words & Music by Bert Caroll / Russell Moody Elvis Presley Lyrics

Won't you wear my ring around your neck
To tell the world I'm yours, by heck
Let them see your love for me
And let them see by the ring around your neck

Won't you wear my ring around your neck
To tell the world I'm yours, by heck
Let them know I love you so
And let them no by the ring around your neck

They say that goin' steady is not the proper thing
They say that we're too young to know the meaning of a ring
I only know that I love you and that you love me too
So, darling, please do what I ask of you

Won't you wear my ring around your neck
To tell the world I'm yours, by heck
Let them see your love for me
And let them see by the ring around your neck

Let them know I love you so
And let them know by the ring around your neck

Recorded: 1958/02/01, first released on single

February 1, 1958 Radio Recorders, Hollywood, California

Elvis begins his last scheduled recording session prior to induction

Elvis works from 10.00am to 7.00pm but gets nowhere with 'My Wish Came True' then spend forty-eight takes on 'Doncha Think It's Time' trying to get a satisfactory take. Dissatisfied with that he then tried Hank William's classic 'Your Cheatin' Heart' but again he is not satisfied with the result. The last song of the day is 'Wear My Ring Around Your Neck', but Elvis struggles to cut what is intended to be the A side of his next single.

Doncha' Think It's Time J2WB 0179-SP
