Scratch my Back


(Giant / Baum / Kaye)

Elvis's vocal was recorded on August 3. Take #2 was selected for record release. Scratch My Back was written by Bill Giant, Bernie Baum and Florence Kaye.



One good turn deserves another

Be my love, I'll be your lover
It's all part of nature's laws
If you'll scratch my back then I'll scratch yours

1. If you'll scratch my back, then I'll scratch your back
Like two peas in a pack, let's get rid of our itch together, Hmm

Joy they say is in the giving
Come on give, make life worth living
Your welfare is my concern
Do a favour for me, I'll do one in return

1. (repeat)

Scratch me now a little lower
What a feeling, do it slower
That's it, Hmm, you're getting hot
Well, I gotta admit, you just hit the spot

1. 1. (repeat)
