Writer Maurice Williams was leader of The Gladiolas. Ernie Young recorded the Gladiolas' version after having asked them to sing their worst song. Elvis seems to have enjoyed the song a lot: not only did he sing it during concerts, when he clearly had great fun with the number, performing it very tongue-in-cheek, but he also sang it at home and several informal recordings of such performances exist, the earliest dating from 1958.

Know well-ah, that my love-ah
Was just for you, oh-only you

To call my own
And never do wrong
And to hold in mine

You`re little hand

That all is grand
Please come back to me

To try to love two, ooh-ah-ooh-ah-ooh-ah-ooh
Know well-ah, that my love-ah
Was just for you, oh-only you
