Don't
Elvis Presley Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine
I get my lovin' in the evening time
When I'm with my baby

Well, it ain't no fun with the sun around
I get going when the sun goes down
And I'm with my baby
Well, that's when we're gonna kiss and kiss and kiss and kiss
And we're gonna kiss some more
Who cares how many times we kiss
'Cause at a time like this, who keeps score?

Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine
I get my loving in the evening time
When I meet my baby

Well, that's when we're gonna kiss and kiss and kiss and kiss
And we're gonna kiss some more
Who cares how many times we kiss
'Cause at a time like this, who keeps score

Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine
I get my loving in the evening time
When I meet my baby

And it don't matter if it's sleet or snow
The drive-in's cozy when the lights are low
And I'm with my baby

Makes no difference if the rain comes down
I don't notice when she's around
Oh boy, what a baby

Well, that's when we're gonna kiss and kiss and kiss and kiss
And we're gonna kiss some more
Well, one kiss from my baby doll makes me hot
More more more more

Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine
I get my loving in the evening time
When I meet my baby

Well, that's when we're gonna kiss and kiss and kiss and kiss and
We're gonna kiss some more
Well, one kiss from my baby doll makes me hot
More more more more

Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine




I get my loving in the evening time
When I'm with my baby

Thank you Elvis Presley channel and Vevo for making these videos, especially the animated ones. Please keep all his songs coming.......this generation has to hear them all; they have to know there is more than the movie soundtrack.

I request you make a video for these three songs....one 50s Elvis, one 60s one 70s Elvis:
1) Big hunk of love
(Rock and roll at its best)
2) Such a night
(They won't stop dancing to this)
3) T-R-O-U-B-L-E
(Rockin' song and not to be confused with The 50s 'Trouble' of course)

And that's the way it's done. God made the world in 7 days. On the 8th day, God made Elvis. This man is not a result of mere genetics. God did this.
