Where Do You Come From

(Batchelor / Roberts)

 

Information:

Ruth Batchelor and Bob Roberts wrote Where Do You Come From for Elvis's 1962 movie Girls! Girls! Girls! Elvis recorded the tune in March 1962 at Radio Recorders. Where Do You Come From spent only one week on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, peaking at #99 - the worst performance of any Presley recording to actually reach the chart. Despite its poor showing on the Hot 100, the song is credited with selling over a million copies worldwide.

 

Lyrics:

Where do you come from

Tell me who you are
Do you come from another world
Or from some distant star

Where do you come from
Are you what you seem
Are you real, are you standing there,
Or is it just a dream

Tell me more about yourself
Do you feel the way I feel
Are you just a vision
Or are you really real

Where do you come from
Angel won't you say
Tell me all that there is to know
And tell me that you'll stay
