They call your daddy Big Boots
And Big Boots is his name
It takes a big man to wear big boots
That's your daddy's claim to fame
They know your daddy Big Boots
Wherever soldiers are
'Cause he can handle an armored tank
Just like a kiddy can
So sleep little soldier
Don't you cry
Loo loo loo loo
Loo loo loo
General sandman's soon coming by
Loo loo loo loo
Loo loo loo
I'm gonna tell you a little secret
You won't believe it's true
Did you know your
Daddy Big Boots
Once wore little boots like you
Recorded: 1960/04/28, first released on G.I. Blues

I give it 4*. I don't know, I just like it. Kinda makes me think of my dad, even now that I'm middle-aged man.

OK for a movie scene, not as a real song on an album. Worst song on "G.I. Blues".

Tenderly sung with that majestic tender soulful voice. I have a preference for the faster version but both are acceptable as interesting diversions although they do not enhance the standard of the album

A lullabye like Five sleepy heads. Might do the trick. Didn't try on on my kids yet.

The worst track on the "G.I. Blues" soundtrack, but still a nice lullabye that Elvis sings very well. The scene in the movie is priceless as Elvis sings an adorable baby to sleep. On vinyl, it is short and sweet, but not overly memorable. 3 stars
