Earth boy dream of angel
Angel she be sweet and make him have happy heart
In land of love
Angel dream of earth boy, earth boy who'll be true
And love her till sun grow cold in land of love

Angel walk on street
Earth boy walking too
All at once they meet
Oo-oo-oo dreams come true
Now that's part of story
Like two doves in land of love we will always be
Happy angel is you
Happy earth boy is me

Angel walk on street
Earth boy walking too
All at once they meet
Oo-oo-oo dreams come true
Now that's part of story
Like two doves in land of love we will always be
Happy angel is you
Happy earth boy is me

Earth boy dream of angel
Angel dream of earth boy
Earth boy dream of angel
Angel dream of earth boy
Earth boy dream of angel

I've always liked this Elvis movie ballad and I've never skipped it. It's such a beautiful ballad and unique too. It would have been nice if Elvis had sung some lines of it in Chinese, but it just wasn't meant to be. But, Elvis' arrangement and rendition of it were still marvelous.

Too bad Elvis didn't sing some lines in Chinese, that would have been interesting. The Jordanaires sound really bored. Elvis not yet.

Not a song I skip, nor a song I specifically seek out, but it has an attraction and a different feel with the Chinese influence. He had the innate ability with ballads, regardless of their quality, to make the best of what was presented to him.

Its a nice song. And flows nicely. I am surprised by a lot of the negitivity to this song. Granted its not "Suspicious Minds" but its a movie ballad.

A situational movie song from the film "Girls! Girls! Girls!. This one is included in a very cute scene in the movie, but on record you are glad it is the last song on Side A so you can hit eject on the record player. It was once called "The Chinese Junk number" by a critic and while it isn't that bad, it is the worst song on the LP. In 1962, just like today, Elvis fans wanted everything that he sang and sometimes that popularity led to subpar songs on soundtrack LP's. Today it leads us to want outtakes of Elvis cussing, fussing, laughing or messing up on numerous alternate takes of every song he sang.

Not a good song, but I always found it inoffensive enough. Better than "Song of Shrimp" and "Walls Have Ears" from the same movie.

Girls Girls Girls was the first LP that really disappointed me. Besides the great title track and RTS (already a hit single) this LP was loaded with sap. Awful songs the lot of them. What the heck was Elvis doing to himself with songs like these? We're Coming In Loaded was about the best of them and that was over before you blinked. This particular song was embarrasing for The King to sing. But many more followed.

The songs in Girls! Girls! Girls! were really awful. I especially hate this one, to me it´s one of the worst songs he ever did. I consider it worse than both Old McDonald and He´s your uncle... I don´t know what is worst, the movie or the soundtrack

I usually run away and scream when I see their names: Tepper/Bennett. I can only think of one fairly good pop song that they wrote: "The Young Ones", but that was for Cliff Richard.

This Earth Boy was hoping Elvis would sing more songs that had guts to them instead of warbling this nonsense.

I would consider this a successor to 'Pocketful of Rainbows': a perfect slice of pop, with a sorrowful air. Both songs also have unique instrumentation, and are foreign-sounding.
