Stuck On You
Elvis Presley Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You can shake an apple off an apple tree
Shake-a, shake, sugar
But you'll never shake me
Uh-uh-uh
No-sir-ee, uh, uh
I'm gonna stick like glue
Stick because I'm
Stuck on you

Gonna run my fingers through your long black hair
Squeeze you tighter than a grizzly bear
Uh-uh-uh
Yes-sir-ee, uh, uh
I'm gonna stick like glue
Stick, because I'm
Stuck on you

Hide in the kitchen, hide in the hall
Ain't gonna do you no good at all
Cause once I catch ya, and the kissin' starts
A team of wild horses couldn't tear us apart
Try to take a tiger from his daddy's side
That's how love is gonna keep us tied
Uh-uh-uh, Uh-uh-uh
Oh yeah, Uh-uh-uh
I'm gonna stick like glue
Stick, because I'm
Stuck on you

Hide in the kitchen, hide in the hall
Ain't gonna do you no good at all
Cause once I catch ya, and the kissin' starts
A team of wild horses couldn't tear us apart
Try to take a tiger from his daddy's side
That's how love is gonna keep us tied
Uh-uh-uh, Uh-uh-uh
Yes-sir-ee, uh, uh
I'm gonna stick like glue
Yeah, yeah, because I'm
Stuck on you
I'm gonna stick like glue
Yeah, yeah, because I'm
Stuck on you
I'm gonna stick like glue




Yeah, yeah, because I'm
Stuck on you

The chorus reaffirms this message - the singer declares that they are stuck on their lover and that nothing could ever keep them apart. The second verse describes the singer's desire for physical closeness with their lover in romantic ways. They want to run their fingers through their lover's hair and hold them tightly like a grizzly bear. The final verse again emphasizes the unbreakable nature of the singer's love, even going so far as to compare it to the strength of a tiger's bond with its parent. Overall, the song is a sweet and simple declaration of love's immovability.

February 1958, I was 16 in hospital for an appendix operation, One of the nurses was always singing this song - I fell in love for the first time, I will never forget this song - or the nurse!!
