This was McShann's biggest hit, featuring Priscilla Bowman on vocals. It was released as a single on Vee-Jay VJ 155 with the grammatically incorrect title of "Hand's Off.".
According to the sleeve-notes of "The Home Recordings," Elvis's recording of this number was recorded in Perugia Way, Bel Air; the book, "A Life In Music," however, gives Monovale Drive, Hollywood, as the recording location. The number itself isn't original, being a rewrite of a country song called "Keep Your Hands Off Of It (Birthday Cake)."


Hands Off
performed by: jay McShann




Take your hands off of her
She don't belong to you

Hands off of her
She don't belong to you

She's mine, o mine, no matter what you do
She's long, lean and lanky
Sweet as she can be
Hands off of her,


She don't belong to you
She's mine, o mine, no matter what I do


Hand's Off
performed by:
Elvis Presley
