Elvis Presley - Put The Blame On Me

From the 1965 movie "Tickle Me"

The soundtrack of Tickle Me is often cited as evidence of how Presley's films became assembly-line, low-budget affairs by the mid-1960s. The budget for the film did not allow for the commissioning of original songs, so instead the soundtrack was created from previously released non-film recordings, some dating back to 1960, and including songs with guitar work by Hank Garland whose career had ended in 1961 following an automobile accident. To coincide with the movie's debut, an EP Record was brought out containing five of the nine songs from the soundtrack. (In Europe, a full album was released).

This is one of only a few Elvis films that does not have a title track.

If they say we were doin' wrong
If they say we were out too long
Well, you can say
My arms were just too strong
Put the blame, put the blame on me

Felt so good when I held you tight
Couldn't stop when we kissed goodnight
So if they tell us we don't heave the right
Put the blame, put the blame on me

What I feel is deep inside
This is real and I won't hide
Go ahead, use my name
I'll be proud to take the blame

You just did what I made you do
You love me and I love you
So if the way they talk can bother you
Put the blame, put the blame on me
