Blue Suede Shoes Lyrics

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
You can do anything
But stay off of my blue suede shoes

Well, you can knock me down
Step in my face
Slander...

    General Comment:
    This 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.
