Words & Music: Joy Byers
She'll tell you that she loves you, make you feel just like a kid
She'll cry to you and lie to you, she'll do 'most anything
She'll get right up next to you and the first thing that you know
You'll be telling her you're sorry because she hurt you so
I said she's evil the most evil girl I've found
There ain't no doubt about it, she's the meanest girl in town

She'll invite you over to her house at half past nine
You'll wear a suit, you'll wear a tie and you'll give your shoes a shine
You'll take a real deep breath and knock on her front door
Her little sister will tell you "She don't live here anymore"
I said she's evil the most evil girl I've found
There ain't no doubt about it, she's the meanest girl in town

And there ain't no doubt about it, she's the meanest girl in town

She'll put her arms around you and squeeze with all her might
She'll breathe a sigh and pucker her lips and pull your arms real tight
Your heart will pound like thunder, you'll melt in her embrace
But when you go to kiss her well she'll laugh right in your face
Because she's evil the most evil girl I've found
There ain't no doubt about it, she's the meanest girl in town
Recorded: 1964/06/10, first released on Girl Happy

Elvis really sounds into it. A great sax solo by Boots Randolph. I love this song. Pure exciting enjoyment.

Fun song. Enjoyable soundtrack. Back in the day my daughters and I really enjoyed the movie. Still do. Of course, the VHS has now been replaced by DVD.

Fun in the movie, but really not a good song.

Fun movie scene. Song is average. Elvis does the best, he can do with it. Sound production should have been recorded much bettter.

I just played this soundtrack recently and this song is so fast it sounds like they were playing to get it over with as soon as possible. Poorly produced also as is the whole album. I didnt care for this at all. Not even a good pretend rocker.

From the same songwriter as "She's a Machine" and it shows. I know it is not a great song, but Elvis was pretty great at being able to dig into any song that had a little edge to it, and this one does. If Elvis is singing about a mean girl or person(You're a Heartbreaker, Mean Woman Blues, She's a Machine, Big Boss Man) or even being mean himself (Trouble.... drawing a blank on others at the moment) he seems to give it that extra edge in his voice, as if he could find a little more to grab onto than the usual rockers about racecars and chasing women. Make no mistake--this is nto a great song, but Elvis elevates it a little more than usual.

An above average movie rocker from the movie and soundtrack LP "Girl Happy". Well written lyrics and Elvis is really into it. The sequence in the movie where this song is used is a good one as Shelly Fabares dances around Elvis and acts out parts of the songs while he sings. Another song that would have been a better choice for the single from the movie (the other one being the title tune) as opposed to "Do The Clam".

An verag 60's movie tune.Shelley Fabares makes it worth watching...there ain't no doubt about it!
