18 - Elvis Presley - Baby let's play house (1955)

Essa décima oitava música da lista é uma musica escrita por Arthur Gunter e gravada por ele em 1954, sem maiores repercussões, pelo selo Excello Records e regravada por Elvis Presley em 1955 no Sun Records.

Tratava-se da quarta gravação de Presley na Sun e se tornou a primeira musica de Elvis a aparecer no chart nacional, entrando no Billboard de música country e atingindo o número 5 em 1955.

Enquanto Gunter havia começado a música com o primeiro verso, Elvis começava com o refrão já. E na versão de Gunter ele dizia: “You may get religion” e Elvis trocou dizendo: “You may have a pink Cadillac”, com referencia ao Cadillac 1954 que Elvis tinha que servia como transporte da banda naquele tempo.

John Lennon usou a frase: "I'd rather see you dead, little girl, than to be with another man," da ultima estrofe de Baby let’s play house pra ser a frase de abertura da musica Run For Your life, do album Rubber soul.

Segue a letra:

Oh, baby, baby, baby, baby baby.
Baby, baby baby, b-b-b-b-b-b baby baby, baby.
Baby baby baby
Come back, baby, I wanna play house with you.

Well, you may go to college,
You may go to school.
You may have a pink cadillac,
But don't you be nobody's fool.

Now baby,
Come back, baby, come.
Come back, baby, come.
Come back, baby,
I wanna play house with you.

Now listen and I'll tell you baby
What I'm talking about.
Come on back to me, little girl,
So we can play some house.

Now baby,
Come back, baby, come.
Come back, baby, come.
Come back, baby,
I wanna play house with you.
Oh let's play house, baby.

Now this is one thing, baby
That I want you to know.
Come on back and let's play a little house,
And we can act like we did before.
Well, baby,
Come back, baby, come.
Come back, baby, come.
Come back, baby,
I wanna play house with you.

Yeah.

Now listen to me, baby
Try to understand.
I'd rather see you dead, little girl,
Than to be with another man.
Now baby,
Come back, baby, come.
Come back, baby, come.
Come back, baby, I wanna play house with you.

Oh, baby baby baby.
Baby baby baby b-b-b-b-b-b baby baby baby.
Baby baby baby.
Come back, baby, I wanna play house with you
