The Next Step Is Love
Elvis Presley Lyrics


She loves me, she loves me not
She loves me, she loves me not
She loves me, she loves me, she loves me
The lady loves me and it shows
In spite of the way she turns up her nose
I'm her ideal, her hearts desire
Under that ice she's burning like fire
She'd like to cuddle up to me
She's playing hard to get
The lady loves me, but she doesn't know it yet

The gentleman has savoir-faire
As much as an elephant or a bear
I'd like to take him for a spin
Back to the zoo to visit his kin
He's got about as much appeal as a soggy cigarette
The lady loathes him but he doesn't know it yet

The lady's got a crush on me
The gentleman's crazy obviously
The lady's dying to be kissed
The gentleman needs a psychiatrist
I'd rather kiss a rattlesnake
Or play Russian roulette
The lady loves me, but she doesn't know it yet

She's falling fast she's on the skids
Both of his heads are flipping their lids
Tonight she'll hold me in her arms
I'd rather be holding hydrogen bombs
Will someone tell this Romeo
I'm not his Juliet
The lady loves me, but she doesn't know it yet

She wants me
Like poison ivy
Needs me
Like a hole in the head
Everyone can see she's got it bad
He's mad!
The gentleman is an egotist
I'm simply aware I'm hard to resist
He's one man I could learn to hate
How's about having dinner at eight
I'd rather dine with Frankenstein
In a moonlight tete-a-tete
The lady loves me, but she doesn't know it yet

Oh yes she loves me
Dig that shrinking violet
Oh she really loves me
Here's one gal you'll never get
She lo- lo- loves me
Would you like to make a bet
I said the lady loves me
The gentleman's all wet

Yesterday I slipped away
The sun is welcoming the evening shadows
On a perfect day and the next step is love
The next step is love
We walked barefoot through the misty meadows
Laughing at each other in the rain
Made some faces at some people in the park
Didn't bother to explain
Fun, fun, look at us run
Going nowhere special really fast
But we've yet to taste the icing on the cake
That we've been baking with the past
And the next step is love
So what are we waiting for?
The next step is love
Girl, it's for sure
Love will be a place to run to
From the world they've built to you and me
We'll be closer than we've ever been
Though, looking back, it's so hard to believe
Hang it all out or bring it all in
The best we've picked upon the way tonight
Changes are coming, but together
We can make it through somehow
Yes, the next step is love

OF a perfect day. “the world they’ve WILLED to” I hope that’s ok with you. I really appreciate your work to type words so I figured you would appreciate my input. Thanks again!

Lexie Lexicon

Thank you so much for writing this out! It really helps while I’m learning to sing it! If you don’t mind, I’d like to fix a couple words. Yesterday HAS slipped away. There are several extra “and”s he throws in. bring it ON in. I can’t remember the others so will start a new comment.

All his fabulous left to rot in the vaults when we have to listen to crap in 2020,music really died when Elvis did, maybe exaggeration, but true in a way, but we haven't had marvelous vocalist, since the died Elvis died.
