Presley, Elvis - Little Egypt Lyrics




I went and bought myself a ticket
And I sat down in the very first row
They pulled the curtain
But then when they turned the spotlight way down low
Little Egypt came out a-struttin'
Wearin' nothin' but a button and a bow

Singing, ying-ying, ying-ying
Ying-ying, ying-ying

She had a ruby on her tummy
And a diamond big as Texas on her toe
She let her hair down
And she did the hoochie-coochie real slow
When she did her special number on the zebra skin
I thought she'd stop the show

Singing, ying-ying, ying-ying
Ying-ying, ying-ying

She did her triple somersault and when she hit the ground
She winked at the audience and then she turned around
She had a picture of a cowboy tattooed on her spine
Said, Phoenix, Arizona 1949

Yeah, but let me tell you people
Little Egypt doesn't dance there anymore
She's too busy mopping
And a-takin' care of shopping at the store
'Cause we've got seven kids
And all day long they crawl around the floor

Singing ying-ying, ying-ying
Ying-ying, ying-ying

    That girl was a good dancer and Elvis perfectly sang while she was dancing! Was this on telly because my dad might have seen it but not me I was born in 1993 and I don't think Elvis was singing it looks like he was lip singing but you never know he might have done

  12. sesh wondo

    Rocky Dennis sings it better

  13. FinlayB

    Not many people can wear a bright red jacket and get away with it. Elvis looks good in anything. He looks stunning here. Great song too, very catchy.

    STORMY TEMPEST

    Alvin Mays

  25. D'Al Mort-Iz

    I love little egypt! wish I could buy a ticket and sit on the very first row...

  26. MKIVWWI

    Elvis was getting stuck in some pretty forgettable musical numbers by the mid-1960s, but this one's the pits.  That constant, annoying "Goochy-goochy-goochy" by what sounds like a dude off-stage, trying to sound like a gal,  sinks this one.  Pure barf.   The soundtrack album's version wisely substituted a "yakety sax" for it, which is a vast improvement.

    Fred

    why waste your time stating your pointless opinion that no one but you cares about

  27. Raymond Baylis

    the king that is Elvis Presley the king of rock n roll

  28. Bill Brower

    Go to settings, and put the speed on 0.75 and leave it there. This speed is perfect at 0.75 !!!

  29. Patty Miller

    Poor Elvis, who wrote that song?? lol of course he made it great but I bet he was not happy!

    Fred

    Haaahaha

    Mary Herlein

    Leiber & Stoller wrote it in 1961; they've written better songs that Elvis recorded.

    cruisectrl

    hahaha it's actually one of my favorite elvis songs!

    Little Egypt

  37. graftonreed

    Wilda Taylor was Little Egypt, amazing dancer with awesome legs. She's 87 and still has the twinkle in her eye and spring in her step. Shows what leading a healthy lifestyle can benefit later in life.

  38. George Vreeland Hill

    Proud to be a fan of Elvis Presley.
    The greatest entertainer in history.

  39. дмитрий алексеев

    Шишка у меня поднялась

  40. Bizsu Me

    Little Egypt where is the Gipsy s come from!
    He was and he is a gipsy boy by his mother side I don't know he's father!
    The gipsy soul that was and still because he is ALIVE

    Remember he is spiking in a special language that is a roma language

  52. LongLivetheKing0871

  53. mochi suzuki

    This movie brings back so many memories! I remember going out to see it with my friends right after the last school bell on a Friday in high school in San Francisco. This movie was very popular among my friends just for the pure emotion of happiness and energy it brought with it. Things were simpler back then.

    cami

    mochi suzuki Ah I'm so jealous, I wish I could just go out with my friends after school to watch the latest Elvis movie :,) Must have been great times

  54. Donna Cole

    I remember listening to this song when i was a child, it was one of dads favourites. I havent heard it for so long,i still remember the words, amazing!

  55. Nina Nina

    He is moving with such a grace. Is there anything that this gorgoeus, talented man didn't have?

    Ella Stern

    Not much of a brain - but otherwise he was perfect. It is terrible to see someone who has it all and still flounder pathetically.

  56. kenny presley

    a young elvis

    Andrew Butler

    He was 29 in 1964 and did aged 42 in 77

  57. kenny presley

    a young elvis

  58. kippercat123

    either this movie is set about 7 % above normal speed or Elvis has been toking a little helium !

    Justin Lim

    Yeah it's annoying, so obvious with girl happy and other movie songs, remember reading somewhere the producers did it to liven up the sound and tempo, but it sounds so darn unnatural, would love to hear the original version and Elvis's real Golden tone.

    Joe Barbaro

    @Justin Lim Here is the original version of the song if that is what you meant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTABp5dWQrg
