Nelson, Ricky - Believe What You Say Lyrics




I believe what you say
When you say you're goin' steady
With nobody else but me
I believe what you say
When you say you don't kiss
Nobody else but me
I believe (I believe)
Do believe (do believe)
I believe (I believe)
Yeah, I believe, pretty baby
Believe you're goin' steady
With nobody else but me

Well, there's-a one thing, baby
That I wantcha to know
When you're rockin' with me
Don't rock too slow
A-Move on in, get toe-to-toe
We're gonna rock till we can't rock no more

I believe (I believe)
Do believe (do believe)
I believe (I believe)
Yeah, I believe, pretty baby
Believe you're goin' steady
With nobody else but me

Well, let's dig it now

Well, I believe what you say
When you say you don't miss
Nobody else but me
I believe what you say
When you say you don't kiss
Nobody else but me
I believe (I believe)
Do believe (do believe)
I believe (I believe)
Yeah, I believe, pretty baby
Believe you're goin' steady
With nobody else but me

Well, when you kiss me, baby
Then you roll your eyes
I get a funny feelin' that I'm hypnotized
Chills run all up and down my spine
I'm tellin' everybody that you're mine
All mine

I believe (I believe)
Do believe (do believe)
Yeah believe (yeah believe)
Oh, believe, pretty baby
Believe you're goin' steady
With nobody else but me

Oh, yeah

Well, I believe
Do believe, yeah believe
Well, believe, pretty baby
Believe you're goin' steady with nobody else but me

Nelson, Ricky Believe What You Say Comments
  1. jennifur sun

    thanks Rick for a great show I saw years ago

  2. steven ford

    What a great Rockabilly track.James Burton could really rock that guitar.

  3. jennifur sun

    have been told that the late Wrecking Crew bass play Joe Osborn played for Ricky

  4. Val Dunnington

    Rock and Roll...straight up!!!!

  5. Douglas Watson

    Pure rock 'n roll. One of the best ever made. Guitar is simply fantastic...

  6. Andy

    Great tune from a legend. Check out the link for a cool cover by UK rocker Shakin' Stevens (recorded 11 years before he became the biggest pop star in Europe). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhXzM-yi9Tw

  7. Wolfsky9

    Rock-A-Billy at it's finest. James Burton ruled ! ------------------------------Wolfsky9, 72 y/o

  8. JGC

    Ricky Nelson was a very weak performer, especially when compared to other rock ‘n’ rollers around then (eg. Jerry Lee, Elvis), but he sounds fine here. Also worth a listen is the flip, ‘My Bucket’s Got A Hole In It’, a reworking of the old Hank Williams Tune. Ricky sounds better here than he does on his earlier records, like ‘Be-Bop Baby’, but his voice is still pretty ‘flat’ sounding. He would have made for a good crooner. I prefer the overdub with the Jordanaires, provides a ‘fuller’ sound

  9. The Bass Fisherman

    Wow that guitar in the back ground at 1:41 to the end is amazing! RIP James Burton

    Sean Ryan

    James Burton is still with us. He turns 80 in August.

    jennifur sun

    @Sean Ryan thank goodness

  10. Gary Spring

    wow the great rickey nelson love it. and the james burton the guitar man

  11. musik mädel

    !!!!!!! Rockabilly!!!!!

  12. No One

    Famous solo. He has simple licks and purely country but they fit the song and are tasteful.

  13. Dick Buelow

    I prefer this version without without the vocals also, both are good, however

  14. paacer

    Brilliant

  15. juscurious

    A VERY underrated performer from the late 50s and early 60s.

  16. David Gena

    Always preferred this version without the vocal backing. Just had a stronger rock'n roll flavor to it.

  17. Steve Moore

    prefer the backing with the jordanaires

  18. Ronald Jillings

    one of my teenage favourites !

  19. tippimail1

    All bow down to James Burton.

  20. Keith Jagger

    One of the greatest rock and roll songs of all time.

    shadowcrew

    Fabulous !!!

  21. David Barnett

    I have this version, as well as the version where he is backed up by the Jordanaires.

  22. Jim Rafferty

    Read about this song in a book called "Waiting For The Sun - Strange Days, Weird Scenes, and The sound of Los Angeles". It talks about this solo, and how it was one of the first on pop records.

    Chris Sharp

    reading that most excellent book right now-which is why I'm checking out this vid

  23. Keith Randall

    Johnny Dark: Maybe it's because this is the version without the overdubbed backing vocals?
    And Earl Dwire is right about Burton's guitar :-)

  24. Johnny Dark

    It's kinda funny that the album says RICK RARITIES '64-'74 when this song came out in '58 :-)

    Graber Ma

    Yeah, this song does not appear on this rarities collection. And it's not a rarity. I guess Luis Alfonso Barragán just digs the hunky pic.

  25. Wildberry Jam Ultra Cosmic

    a favorite song of John Fogerty, he writes about how much he liked Ricky as a young beginning guitar player !

  26. Earl Dwire

    I think this version without the Jordanaires is far better. This was the 45 version.

  27. Wolfsky9

    Burton played --I believe--a Gibson Les Paul Special 6-string. It was awesome!  Loved this song!!     Wolfsky9

    Earl Dwire

    +Wolfsky9 Nope. Fender Telecaster mostly with Rick, a Jazzmaster for a few.

  28. 1958Shemp

    One of Rick N's (and guitarist James Burton's) FINEST moments.  Believe, pretty baby...

  29. belisario guerra

    Original: Rick Nelson ( U.S.A. ) - Believe what you say ( Dorsey Burnette - Johnny Burnette ) ( 10/3/1958 ). Covers: Luis Bravo ( Cuba ) - Yo creí ( believe what you say ) ( 1961 ). Los Locos del Ritmo ( Mexico ) - Me botó ( 196? ).

    Donald Tabor

    I've never seen James Burton with a Gibson guitar always with a Fender Telecaster

  30. Jerry Brownell

    Composed by Johnny and Dorsey Burnette. This was the first record that The
    Jordanaires , Ricky's long time back up singers appeared on.

    Jerry Brownell

    Yes this is the undubbed version but The
    Jordanaires made almost everyone sound better with their vocal harmonies.

  31. 540rollerman

    Very good song by Ricky, thank you
