(Wayne / Weisman)

Dominic was a bull in Elvis’s 1968 movie Stay Away, Joe, and Dominic was the song Elvis sang to him. RCA has never officially released the tune until 1994, which was written by Sid Wayne and Ben Weisman. The recording took place on October 2, 1967, at RCA’s Nashville studios.


Dominic, Dominic, why are you stallin'
Don't you hear love callin' to you
Moo, moo, move your little foot do

Dominic, Dominic, pick one and take her
There's acres and acres to choose
Oh, oh, only a fool would refuse

I, I, if I had your trouble
Life would be double good sweet
There'd be no grass growin' under my feet

Listen, Dominic, Dominic, when will you hunger
You ain't gettin' younger, my friend
Love, love, love 'em all right to the end

I, I, I can't understand you, leavin' them beauties forlorn
It's time to take the old bull by the horn
Come on, Dominic, Dominic, they're itchin' and twitchin'
Better start pickin' some woo
Moo, moo, move your little foot do!
