Baby it's wrong wrong as can be
To try and tie guy like me
I could never settle down in a little sleepy town
There's so much world to see

Sure would be happy for a while
But then we'd have to part
When tears replace your loving smile
Well I don't want to be the guy who has to break your heart
So here's where it ends
Not lovers but friends
Though your lips are tempting me
Maybe I'm a fool and yet
This wanderer just can't forget
There's so much world to see

Sure would be happy for a while
But then we'd have to part
When tears replace your loving smile
Well I don't want to be the guy who has to break your heart
So here's where it ends
Not lovers but friends
Though your lips are tempting me
Maybe I'm a fool and yet
This wanderer just can't forget
There's so much world to see
For me, there's so much world to see
Yeah! yeah! Mmm
Recorded: 1966/06/28, first released on Double Trouble

A great song with a definetely bluesy feel to it. The drums are hit loud too. (by Fontana, Harman or overdubbed by Toxey Sewell). Also Jerry Scheff overdubbed bass on the soundtrack, maybe because Bob Moore only played double-bass.

No. It doesn't work for me at all.Elvis trying to do a Sinatra or Dino? His voice says it all, distinctly uncomfortable with the song.

It is one of these songs I really like from the second half of the movie decade. A very athmospheric song, and I can side with King Creole's post in every word except the "trains in the night" line. Never heard it, are there any outtakes eventually? Your Album idea by the way is great. A genre album type, wouldn't that be something? Another remark to TBG's post: Am I right, that the sound stage was the low budget option for low budgeted movies? Never got deep into it but when I was collecting Elvis LP's some thirthy years ago as a 19 year old youngster, I noted this slight shift in sound. It wasn't as crisp and clear anymore, as let's say in G.I. Blues or follow That Dream or other early releases. The song in itself also includes a sad strain. As for Elvis there was so much world to see as well, but he never went places outside of the U.S. during his post army life. What a waste...

Something about the delivery of this song that reminds me of I'll Be Back. Yep I like it a lot along with City By Night with a hint of blues and that laid back night club feel. I know I am a broken record but I add echo to these tracks and they all go up a notch in enjoyment and acceptance. 3 1/2 stars

I love this song, a little untypical for Elvis, just like a couple of other songs from this Movie, like City by Night. Too bad they didn't record these songs profesionally in a recording studio, but decided to use a soundstage. It really ruins so many great songs. Frankie and Johnny is another album With several good songs (and bad ones too), but it's hard to enjoy them With the sound quality.

I've always liked this song immensely and it's a better song than many of Elvis' other movie songs. My favorite song from the movie "Double Trouble" is "City By Night". The only song from the movie "Double Trouble" that I wish that Elvis had never recorded is "Old MacDonald". An artist like Elvis should have never recorded anything like "Old MacDonald". In my opinion, "Old MacDonald" should only be sung by young children.

I unabashedly love this song. I wish the "trains in the night" verse would have made it to the final released version. This song and "City By Night" really kinda blow me away. This is a very Bobby Darin type of track. It's quite lounge-like and swanky. It is a song I can play for non-Elvis fans to amaze them (provided their other musical tastes include Bobby Darin, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole). I compare this song, favorably, to "Just Friends" by Sinatra or Darin. On my fantasy album, if I got to switch places with Ernst someday, this song would be there alongside "Somebody To Lean On", "Such a Night", "City By Night", "This is Our Dance", "Almost" and "Almost In Love" "Edge of Realty", "Wonderful World". In other words, this track goes in my Adult Easy Listening/Lounge/Swing category--a category rarely visited by Elvis (and one I am sure I am defining incorrectly in a broad sense, but to me this is a genre...)

Another different type of song recorded for the movie and LP "Double Trouble". As I said in another review, this LP was up and down. At times, interesting and good, sometimes mediocre and sometimes poor. This one falls in the interesting and good category. Elvis does a good job of phrasing this song and makes it work in the movie and on record.
