And in 1961, the song went to #5 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and #1 in the U.K. The single was a double A-Side with “(Marie’s the Name) His Latest Flame,” which went to #4 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and #1 in the U.K.

Elvis Aaron Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977).

Here are the lyrics to “Little Sister” by Elvis Presley:

Little sister, don’t you
Little sister, don’t you
Little sister, don’t you
Kiss me once or twice
Then say it’s very nice
And then you run
Little sister, don’t you
Do what your big sister done

Well, I dated your big sister
And took her to a show
I went for some candy
Along came Jim Dandy
And they snuck right out the door

Little sister, don’t you
Little sister, don’t you
Little sister, don’t you
Kiss me once or twice
Then say it’s very nice
And then you run
Little sister, don’t you
Do what your big sister done

Every time I see your sister
Well, she’s got somebody new
She’s mean and she’s evil
Like that old Boll Weevil
Guess I’ll try my luck with you

Little sister, don’t you
Little sister, don’t you
Little sister, don’t you
Kiss me once or twice
Then say it’s very nice
And then you run
Little sister, don’t you
Do what your big sister done

Well, I used to pull your pigtails
And pinch your turned-up nose
But you been a growin’
And, baby, it’s been showin’
From your head down to your toes

Little sister, don’t you
Little sister, don’t you
Little sister, don’t you
Kiss me once or twice
Then say it’s very nice
And then you run
Little sister, don’t you
Do what your big sister done
Little sister, don’t you
Do what your big sister done

    Do you have “Black Slacks” recorded by The Sparkleeones? It was a top hit on Billboard in late 50’s. My good friend and playing companion is Donnie Seay who was the guitar player with that group. We now perform together in the Dawsonville, Ga. area.
