This song was originally submitted for the score of the Disney cartoon "Cinderella," but was not used in the film. Elvis was not really a rocker at heart (though he might well have been a rocker in his soul...). His musical tastes were many and varied, but he seemed to have a predeliction for apparent opposites: Blues singers and Crooners! His own version of "I Don't Care..." seems to be based on that of his very favorite crooner, Dean Martin! The story goes that when Elvis decided to record it for Sun, he could not remember all of the song, so Marion Keisker, assistant to Sun producer Sam Phillips, wrote additional lyrics. The song's publisher insisted that Marion sign a disclaimer that her name would not be on the label nor would she receive royalties. Marion agreed. It was released as the B-side the "Good Rockin' Tonight" single. Most sources give either Patti Page or Dean Martin as the original recording artists for this number. However, Martin's recording was made on 28 March 1950 and Page's on 3 March 1950 (some sources give 3 February). Both of these were preceded by Tony Martin's version, made on 2 December 1949, with Henri Rene and His Orchestra, for RCA Victor.

I don't care if the sun don't shine
I get my lovin' in the evening time
When I'm with my baby

It's no fun with the sun around
But I get going when the sun goes down
And I meet my baby

That's when we kiss and kiss and kiss
And then we kiss some more
Don't ask how many times we kiss
At a time like this, who keeps score?

So I don't care if the sun don't shine
I get my lovin' in the evening time
When I'm with my baby

The sun contains a ray
They label Vitamin D
If you like Vitamin D
It's quite alright with me
But I am here to say
That I like vitamin love
But I can't get vitamin love
With that doggone sun above


That's when we kiss and kiss and kiss
And then we kiss some more
Don't ask how many times we kiss
At a time like this, who keeps score?

So I don't care if the sun don't shine
I get my lovin' in the evening time
When I'm with my baby

Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine.
I get my lovin' in the evening time
When I'm with my baby.

Well, it ain't no fun with the sun around.
I get going when the sun goes down
And I'm with my baby.

Well, that's when we're gonna kiss and kiss and kiss and kiss,
And we're gonna kiss some more.
Who cares how many times we kiss,
'Cause at a time like this, who keeps score?

Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine
I get my loving in the evening time
When I meet my baby.

Well, that's when we're gonna kiss and kiss and kiss and kiss,
And we're gonna kiss some more.
Who cares how many times we kiss,
'Cause at a time like this, who keeps score?

Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine
I get my loving in the evening time
When I meet my baby.

And it don't matter if it's sleet or snow,
he drive-in's cozy when the lights are low
And I'm with my baby.

Makes no difference if the rain comes down
I don't notice when she's around.
Oh boy, what a baby.

Well, that's when we're gonna kiss and kiss and kiss and kiss
And we're gonna kiss some more.
Well, one kiss from my baby doll
Makes me holler
More more more more.

Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine
I get my loving in the evening time
When I'm with my baby.

Well, that's when we're gonna kiss and kiss and kiss and kiss
And we're gonna kiss some more.
Well, one kiss from my baby doll
Makes me holler
More more more more.

Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine
I get my loving in the evening time
When I'm with my baby.

Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine.
I get my lovin' in the evening time
When I'm with my baby.

Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine.
I get my lovin' in the evening time
When I'm with my baby.
