It's Your Baby, You Rock It

Rating:
4.0 / 5

Words & Music: Shirl Milete Nora Fowler

You offered me a penny for my thoughts
And I told you then that woman won't stay caught
But you turned and loved her anyway
She broke your heart and all I’ve got to say

It's your baby, you rock it
It's your heartache, you bought it
You made the bed your sleeping in
And I’m tired of hearing about it friend
It's your baby you, rock it

Well you cried upon my shoulder like a baby
I'm sorry 'bout your troubles and your lady
But she done you like she done me
And I’ve used up all my sympathy
It's your baby you, rock it

It's your baby, you rock it
It's your heartache, you bought it
You made the bed your sleeping in
And I’m tired of hearing about it friend
It's your baby you, rock it

I find this to be the most hip song on the Elvis Country LP, musically & lyrically. Why wasn't this released as a single? It was a brand new song as opposed to the 'covers' that were released as a single. Major missed opportunity.

Great musicians are at work here, supporting the greatest singer of all time. Would have been a great single, with The Fool on the B-side. Alas.

Good track, great album, but why didn't climb further up the Uk album chart, I was sure it would hit the #1 spot so when it only reached #6 I was a little disappointed. 4 stars for both this track and also the album.

Elvis rocks this "country" song and it easily had enough hook to be a single release for both the pop and country markets. I know Elvis sometimes chose the songs to be singles and sometimes he left it up to the Colonel and RCA, but as much as I love "I Really Don't Want To Know" and "There Goes My Everything", this was indeed a missed opportunity. A 5 star song from a 5 star LP.

A very good upbeat country song that I rate it as a super album track but not single A side material. That should have belonged to The Fool or Whole Lotta Shaking but nevertheless I always enjoy it and award it 4 stars.

I truly believe it would've been a Top-10 hit in the U.S. if it had been released as a single! It's Your Baby, You Rock It / I Really Don't Want To Know

This is such a marvelous and catchy song and it should definitely be much better known than it actually is. It should've been issued as a single here in the United States, but sadly it wasn't. I've always thought of this track as single A side hit material. This was yet another poor business decision by RCA. This song should have definitely been a hit for Elvis here in the United States, but it never was. I rate this song 5 stars because it's a masterpiece.

Not a bad song. Unfortunately at the time, I was no longer buying records by Elvis Presley. I had lost all interest in him as a recording artist. It was only in my old age that I came back and started listening to him again, to FTD I say thank you for that.

Remembering those horrible singles: Life/ Only Believe and Where Did They Go Lord/Rags To Riches one may wonder what had happened to Elvis. This song c/w The Fool would have made more sense imo. It's Your Baby....has easily become my fav from the Elvis Country album. A 5'er from me!
