Kissin' Cousins 2


(Giant / Baum / Kaye)


Although Elvis also sang this song in Kissin’ Cousins, it is a completely different version form the Kissin’ Cousins that was released as a single. Elvis recorded Kissin’ Cousins (No. 2) at RCA’s Nashville studios in October 1963. It was written by Bill Giant, Bernie Baum and Florence Kaye.



Cousins, kissin' cousins
Kissin's allowed 'cos we're proud to be cousins
What's a little teasin', huggin' and a-squeezin'
Between us cousins
Oh, it's so great to be one big family
And we show it, yes, we show it
You see, we never feud, we're a happy brood
Folks all know it, yes, they know it

Cousins, kissin' cousins
For we rest and we mess
We're just cousins,
Cousins, kissin' cousins
Cousins, kissin' cousins
