I do't want much
Just want a little bit
Don't want it all
Just a little bit
Give me an eeny weeny bit
A teeny weeny bit of your love

Turn your lamps down low
Slip me a kiss
Turn your lights down low
I won't let you resist
I want an eeny weeny bit
A teeny weeny bit of your love

Early in the mornin'
Well just a little bit
Around midnight
Just a little bit
I want an eeny weeny bit
A teeny weeny bit of your love

Walk with me
Just a little bit
I said talk to me
Just a little bit
I want an eeny weeny bit
A teeny weeny bit of your love

I want you to remember
To say that you'll be mine
Say you'll never leave me
Till the end of time
I want an eeny weeny bit
A teeny weeny bit of your love
I want an eeny weeny bit
A teeny weeny bit of your love
Recorded: 1973/07/22, first released on Raised on Rock

I like it but I don't love it. I A good rocker but far from a great one from the "Raised On Rock" LP, which I consider also to be good but far from great.

Great funky tune done in just one take. Check out Freddie King, T-Bone Walker, Johnny Winter, Rosco Gordon, Rory Gallagher, Tony Sheridan & The Beatles, Etta James, Jimmy Vaughan, Steve Miller, Pinetop Perkins, Magic Sam, Charlie Musselwhite and tell me who has the funkiest version. Sadly, Elvis hasn't got the best vocal performance. He sounds too laid-back. Nevertheless, a great track.

A nice song, but Elvis isn't there. He seems tired and if he'd put the effort the song needed, it would be great. It had potential the the King, but it didn't reach the top. I listen to it but not very often.

I dont really like ANY version of this song, but I like the rest of the Album a lot. I will still take this song over most Tom Jones, Jerry Lee or Beatles songs though, any day of the week, just because of Elvis´ voice - that is also one reason why he owed most songs he covered (like it or not ).

Terrible, just terrible. One star from me.

A contradiction in terms this album "Raised On Rock", this LP is anything but.

As someone who loves most of the 70's output, this is not one of my favourites and does not hit my emotional nerve.
It never really gets going and overall I like Three Corn Patches better than this one

I've always liked Elvis' rendition of this song and it's one of the very best tracks from the less than great "Raised On Rock" album. I don't like Jerry Lee Lewis' version of this song.

Elvis owned this song and anyone who disagrees is wrong.

I like this song as I've always liked the Raised On Rock album. I like that laidback groove with Elvis' voice in the same vein. The FTD really brought new life to this album and I love it. I heard JLL's version of the song and I still think Elvis' is better. But, that's my opinion of it. I like the ballads on here as well, with the classic rendition of TJW's For Ol' Time Sake as a favourite. As such I have one more album to enjoy than those who don't.

One of the dullest songs Elvis ever sang. Like "Shake a Hand" and "I Can Help", a 70s "rocker" that doesn't rock.
Biffx (profilecontact) wrote on Aug 24, 2012report abuse
Its one of the weakest tracks on an album that I generally like even more so since the FTD classic release. Its certainly not bad enough that I skip the song, and with many artists when they release an album normally I find at least one weak song. Not even Elvis could maintain a 100% every recording will be flawless and great.

The year 1973 was a fantastic studio and concert year in many ways. The funky sound of the Stax recordings is unique in his catalogue and Aloha from Hawaii his greatest live performance with over 1 billion viewers. This is a pretty cool song from this great Elvis year and the only sad thing to say is that 1973 is probably the last truly great year of our man. If the lyrics would have been stronger this could have been four stars but now it gets three stars from me.

I like it, altough you can hear that his mood was more for the ballads, "For Ol' Times Sake" is one of his best. I don't like jerry lee lewis his version and people who dislike this song/album are the ones who dislike almost everything he did in the 70's. They better can review his 50's songs here and go to the beatles/beach boys/stones etc. boards for the mid 60's and 70's area.

One of the better songs on a pretty poor album. I have heard much better versions and no one can say otherwise.

Elvis owned this song and no one else can say otherwise.

I never really 'got' this song. That said, I don't mind it - I wouldn't select it to play but that said, when it does pop up on random I never skip it.

I just listened to Jerry Lee Lewis' version and Elvis' is much more funky and a much better production. Jerry's version is horrible and I like Jerry Lee. I love "Great Balls Of Fire" etc, but "Just A Little Bit" by Jerry Lee is a just a little bit too long, like 3 minutes too long.

Another funky and interesting song from "Raised On Rock". Not a great track, but an enjoyable one and Elvis' mood seems fine on this one (Can we please just judge the song and not have to state what we think his mood was?). Yes, he wasn't looking forward to this recording session and he had a lot going on in his personal life, but he went to work just like most of us do and he did his job and he did it very well. If he was so "out of it" for this why was the song before it one that most of you praise, "I've Got A Thing About You Baby". 2 1/2 to 3 stars.

A rotten song, and an equally poor recording.

I purchased the Raised on Rock album when it was first released (I was a small boy back then!). I like the cover art, and I like the album overall. However, for some reason this song never "connected" with me. I do not dislike it, but I don't get very excited hearing it either. I guess it's like drinking a luke-warm cup of coffee: ok to drink, but you prefer something hotter.

I like the song & the Lp Raised On Rock. Granted Elvis version was not the best but I still like it.
John4126 (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 15, 2009report abuse
Compared to what other artists were producing at the time this song and the lp it came from were recorded, it's dire.

I never was fond of the original album, but I really like the expanded FTD version. As for this song: I like it a lot.

A very mediocre song from a particularly poor album yet there were some songs that had enormous potential there.

There´s not many Elvis Presley songs that I dislike. But this is one of them, I always skip this one, I just can´t listen to it

Had potential but just wasn't there.
sitdown68 (profilecontact) wrote on Jul 16, 2008report abuse
another would have been a real contribution to this album: Good, Bad But Beautiful. Unfortunately EP never overdubbed the vocal part. This song is as bad as some midsixties tunes. It seems uninspiried.

I love the "Raised on rock"-album for some reason. I don't know why, because I know how bad Elvis' mood and performance is. But it has some real funky playing from the band. He should have tried this one later. Listen to JErry Lee Lewis' version from the same year, also cut in Memphis. Now, THAT'S how it should sound. Even better than the original...

Too bad Elvis was out of it when he recorded this at Stax. Maybe later in the year he would have given it its proper treatment, for its a decent song. For all those who blankly state once Elvis sang a song he owned it, listen to other artists versions of this song.
Colonel (profilecontact) wrote on Apr 27, 2008report abuse
Well, the song is great but Elvis sounds like he's sleeping. I like the track though, with better vocals it could've been great. Compare this one to Jerry Lee Lewis' version of the same song from the same year, and even also recorded in Memphis, from his great "Southern roots"-album. Now that is how this song should sound

One of the few songs I never listen to. I'm sure Elvis himself found it tasteless ! I'd even prefer "Yogas is as yoga does" over that one !

A very mediocre track from an equally average album.
