All Shook Up

Words & Music:

Elvis Presley


A-well, a-bless my soul what's wrong with me?


I'm itchin' like a man on a fuzzy tree.


My friends say I'm actin' wild as a bug.

A [stop chord]

I'm in love, I'm all shook up.

      D   E   A

Mm-mm-mm, mm, yay-ay!


Well, my hands are shaky and my knees are weak.

I can't seem to stand on my own two feet.

Who do you think of when you have such luck?

I'm in love, I'm all shook up.  Mm-mm-mm, mm, yay-ay!




Well, please don't ask me what's on my mind.


I'm a little mixed up, but I'm feelin' fine.


When I'm near that girl that I love best,

E [stop chord]

My heart beats so it scares me to death!


Well, she touched my hand, what a chill I got.

Her lips are like a volcano when it's hot.

I'm proud to say that she's my buttercup

I'm in love, I'm all shook up.  Mm-mm-mm, mm, yay-ay!


Chorus 2:

My tongue gets tied when I try to speak.

My insides shake like a leaf on a tree.

There's only one cure for this body of mine:

That's to have that girl that I love so fine!





Mm-mm-mm, mm, yay-ay!  I'm all shook up!
