Little mama I took your lovin'
But I wasn't true to you
Little mama I took your lovin'
But I wasn't true to you
Now you're leavin' litte mama
I can't blame you if you do

Little mama I lied (yes, I lied)
Lied all along (all along)
Little mama I lied (yes, I lied)
Lied all along (all along)
Playin' around, little mama (playin' around)
Yes, and I did you mighty wrong (mighty wrong)

Little mama I told your good friends
Told your sister Mary too
Little mama I told your good friends
Told your sister Mary too
That all I ever wanted
Was to get your gold from you

Little mama I'm sorry (yes, I'm sorry)
Sorry to my heart (to my heart)
Little mama I'm sorry (oh, I'm sorry)
Sorry to my heart (to my heart)
I had the best intentions (best intentions)
Baby, right from the start (from the start)

Little mama I'm gonna miss you
When you put me on the shelf
Little mama I'm gonna miss you
When you put me on the shelf
Ain't nothing I can tell you
You didn't find out yourself

Little mama I love you (yeah, I do)
Little mama I love you (got to be true)
Little mama I love you (please don't go)
Little mama I miss you (need you so)
Little mama I don't want nobody but you

A special gem, very exiting. I found it on spotify.

"Only You" and "Rock Around The Clock" in about the same You-tube quality would be a nice find. Without too much knowledge about the Elvis World, I do not know exactly if "Little Mama" rumored to exist in the hands of a certain Sherif. There is a story out there of someone who seems to possess RATC but not willing to share it with the rest of the Elvis Colletctors. Wasn't it Ernest Joergensen who heard a clandestinely recorded snippet of it by someone who was allowed to hear the original RATC tape? "Only You" would be intresting too. In comparison to "I Was The One" Well, wait they surely come out with it by April 1, 2013 ;-) Cheers, Pedro.

I have only heard this historic live recording on Youtube so perhaps I am not being entirely objective but it is like Fool Fool Fool to me, in how better it could have been properly recorded. To reallyy appreciate this performance demands visuals, and this would have been really something to see, but alas that is just a dream.

I'm so very glad that the acetate containing Elvis' version of "Little Mama" was finally released this year. For so many years, I thought that this Elvis recording would never be released. This is such a terrific song and Elvis' rendition of it was brilliant. Now, I'm hoping that Elvis' versions of "Sitting On Top Of The World", "Only You", "Uncle Pen" and "Rock Around The Clock" would eventually be located and officially released.
