Recorded during the jam session at the Sun Studios, known as "The Million Dollar Quartet." Jerry Lee Lewis (The Killer) was at the session, along with Carl Perkins and Elvis (Johnny Cash was there for at least some time, but it is not certain that he was actually caught on tape). During the chat preceding his informal performance of "Don't Forbid Me," Elvis mentions that the number was written for him and sent to him, but that he "never even seen it."
Pat Boone was born Charles Eugene Boone in Jacksonville, Florida, on 1 June, 1934. He was called Pat because his mother wanted a girl who she was going to name Patricia. He began his recording career in 1954 with Republic Records, but his breakthrough came in 1955 when he moved to the Dot label under the guidance of Randy Wood.


Don't Forbid Me
performed by:
Pat Boone



Don't forbid me to hold you tight
a-darlin', don't-a forbid me to hold you tight
Let me hold you in my lovin' arms
'cause it's cold and I can keep you warm

a-don't-a forbid me to kiss your lips
a-darlin' don't-a forbid me to kiss your lips
Let me kiss you please, baby, please
'cause it's cold and your lips might freeze

Well, there's a strong West wind a-blowin'
And there's a big blue moon above
And, pretty baby, I've been knowin'
You need some heart-warmin' love

So don't-a forbid me to talk sweet talk
Darlin' don't-a forbid me to talk sweet talk
Let me fill your little heart with fire
'cause it's cold, so don't forbid my desire

Darling don't forbid me to hold you tight
Take me in your lovin' arms

Don't forbid me to talk sweet talk
Take me in your arms baby please
'cause it's cold, it's cold and your lips might freeze
