Father/Daughter Dance - Elvis song

I wanted an Elvis song for my dance with my dad. He is a big Elvis fan and I can remember him singing every single word to any Elvis song that ever came on... my idea was Love Me Tender, but would that be awkward? Also, not even thinking about the lyrics, I'm wondering if the melody is dance-able? Any other song suggestions?

Love me tender,
love me sweet,
never let me go.
You have made my life complete,
and I love you so.

Love me tender,
love me true,
all my dreams fulfilled.
For my darlin' I love you,
and I always will.

Love me tender,
love me long,
take me to your heart.
For it's there that I belong,
and we'll never part.
love me tender love me true all my dreams fulfill for my darling i love you and i always will
Love me tender,
love me dear,
tell me you are mine.
I'll be yours through all the years,
till the end of time
love me tender love me true
all my dreams fulfill for my darling i love you ----and i always will

Re: Father/Daughter Dance - Elvis song

  • Great song. My dad is a huge Elvis fan, as well. Something about "love me tender" creeps me out a little though. Maybe I just have issues ;) Memories by Elvis is a popular father/daughter dance song. But I mean it's pretty hard to find lyrics that don't sound romantic in some way. Maybe I'm overanalyzing.

  • I love Elvis too but I think "Love me Tender" is more of a song for you & your FI & other couples.

  • Not many of Elvis' songs are really father/dughter appropriate, he sang to the ladies that's why they loved him. :)   I understand what you mean though, only it was my mom that sang the Elvis Song's to me.  My daddy sang Johnny Cahs.

    About about Memories by Elvis:

    Honestly I've racked my brain and my CD colleciton for ya, and its hard to find one.  I'll post one if I see it.

  • or ill hold you in my heart, and why will you cut it out
  • Because many of them are either too slow to dance to or quite obvious it's supposed to be sung to a "lover"

  • I don't think "Memories" is inappropriate. We are using it for the father/daughter and mother/son dance, which we are doing together because my dad hates having attention directed just on him. Here are the lyrics, which I find very sweet. Daughters and sons, when young, pick bouquets for their parents. To me it sounds like a song remembering some great times together. FWIW, I played the youtube version for my fiance, and he agreed it would be great for our parents dances. Here are the lyrics......

    Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind
    Memories, sweetened through the ages just like wine

    Quiet thoughts come floating down
    And settle softly to the ground
    Like golden autumn leaves around my feet
    I touched them and they burst apart with sweet memories,
    Sweet memories

    Of holding hands and red bouquets
    And twilights trimmed in purple haze
    And laughing eyes and simple ways
    And quiet nights and gentle days with you

    Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind
    Memories, sweetened through the ages just like wine,
    Memories, memories,


    Of holding hands and red bouquets
    And twilights trimmed in purple haze
    And laughing eyes and simple ways
    And quiet nights and gentle days with you


    Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind
    Memories, sweetened through the ages just like wine
    Memories, memories, sweet memories, memories...
