(Otis / Dixon)

Information:
Clyde Otis and Willie Dixon wrote Doncha' Think It's Time for Elvis in 1958. Elvis first recorded the song on January 23, 1958, at Radio Recorders, but all takes were deemed unsatisfactory. An acceptable take (# 40) was recorded on February 1, 1958. The single release reached # 21 on Billboard's Top 100 chart during its six week stay.

Lyrics:

 

I've been yearning for a little romance
I wanna know when you gonna give me a chance
Kiss me, honey, tell me your mine
Doncha' think it's time

I've been yearning for a sweet embrace
Rub my hair till I'm a total disgrace
Love me, honey, make my life divine
Doncha' think it's time

1. I don't wanna walk without you
Walkin' right by my side
It hurts me to see you talkin'
With the other guys

I get so warm when you touch my cheek
You thrill me so much that I can hardly speak
Love me, honey, tell me you're mine
Doncha' think it's time

1. (repeat)

 

I get so warm when you touch my cheek
You thrill me so much that I can hardly speak
Love me, honey, make me feel so fine
Doncha' think it's time
Doncha' think it's time
Doncha' think it's time
Doncha' think it's time
