Tod Moses

Little Sister

Ya Know? That Band
Doc Pomis & Mort Shuman


This tune was originally recorded by Elvis Presley. Tod found this one, believe it or not on MTV back in the 80s. There was a video of Rockpile (Nick Lowe, Dave Edmonds and Co) doing this live with Robert Plant fronting the vocals.  I guess it left a mark.


Well, I dated your big sister
And took her to a show
I went for some candy
Along came Jim Dandy
And they snuck right out of the door

Ev'ry time I see your sister
Well she's got somebody new
She's mean and she's evil
Like that old Boll Weevil
Guess I'll try my luck with you

Well, I used to pull your pigtails
And pinch your turned-up nose
But you been a growin'
And baby, it's been showin'
From your head down to your toes

Little sister, don't you
Little sister, don't you
Little sister, don't you kiss me once or twice
Then say it's very nice and then you run
Little sister, don't you do what your big sister done
