Elvis Presley: Blue Suede Shoes (testo canzone)

Artista: Elvis Presley
Canzone: Blue Suede Shoes (1956)

Blue Suede Shoes è un brano musicale ritenuto ormai uno standard rock and roll scritto e registrato dal chitarrista Carl Perkins nel 1955. La canzone è considerata uno dei primi brani di puro rockabilly che incorpori elementi di blues, country e pop allo stesso tempo. Il brano è stato reinterpretato con successo da Elvis Presley che ne incise una celebre cover poco dopo l’uscita dell’originale di Perkins. La rivista Rolling Stone classifica la versione di Elvis Presley al #423 posto della 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. (wikipedia)

Blue Suede Shoes

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 my name
All over the place

Do anything that you want to do
But uh-uh, honey
Lay off of my shoes
Don’t you step on my blue suede shoes
Well, you can do anything
But stay off of my blue suede shoes

Let’s go, cat!
Ah, walk the dog

You can burn my house
Steal my car
Drink my liquor
From an old fruit jar

Do anything that you want to do
But uh-uh, honey
Lay off of my shoes
And don’t you
Step on my blue suede shoes
Well, you can do anything
But stay off of my blue suede shoes

Ah, get
Yeah

Well, it’s one for the money
Two for the show
Three to get ready
Now go, go, go!

But don’t you
Step on my blue suede shoes
Well, you can do anything
But stay off of my blue suede shoes

Well, it’s
Blue, blue
Blue suede shoes
Blue, blue
Blue suede shoes, yeah!
Blue, blue
Blue, suede shoes, baby
Blue, blue
Blue suede shoes
Well, you can do anything
But stay off of my blue suede shoes!
